Meet the Cook: Probably my family's favorite pumpkin dessert, this is something I've been making since our two daughters were small. the crust mixture, which is actually poured in first, rises to the top during baking to form a rich topping. You won't get a soggy bottom crust as you do with a pie. —Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon
