One autumn while cooking at a restaurant on Martha’s Vineyard, I became obsessed with pumpkin pie, testing one recipe after another, making yet a few more adjustments each time, in search of the perfect pie. I could “taste” this one in my head—simple and custardy, light but with some body to cut through, the flavor subtly rounded with vanilla and complex spicing, but with the pumpkin, not the spice, predominant.
