For the crust: combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar in a large bowl.

Add melted butter and mix well until it looks like wet sand and there are no dry spots.

Pour into the pie dish and press to cover the bottom and sides. Start at the edges and work towards the center.

Use your hands (my choice) or a measuring cup. Bake as instructed in the recipe card.

For the filling: mix pumpkin puree with sugar. Add eggs, cream, and sour cream, and mix well without beating.

Add spices and vanilla and mix until incorporated and smooth. Don't beat.

Pour into the crumb crust and bake until golden brown. Cool and chill according to instructions.

Serve at room temperature with a mound of whipped cream.
