Ingredients:
9 ounces graham crackers
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons Dutch-process cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon,
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons unflavored powdered gelatin
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions:
Heat oven to 325° F. In a food processor, combine graham crackers, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, cocoa powder, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg; process until finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl; mix in butter with a wooden spoon. Press mixture onto bottom and sides of a 10″ pan. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until set. Set crust aside to cool. In a small bowl, place apple juice and 2 tablespoons water. Sprinkle gelatin powder over liquid; set aside to soften, about 10 minutes. Beat eggs in an electric mixer at medium-low speed until fluffy. Combine 3/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally about 5 minutes until the sugar water turns into a firm ball. With the mixer at high speed, drizzle sugar mixture into eggs. Beat about 5 minutes, until mixture turns pale yellow. Place bowl with softened gelatin over a saucepan of simmering water and stir until gelatin dissolves. Turn mixer to low and add gelatin to egg mixture. Add pumpkin purée, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, allspice, ginger, salt, and sour cream and combine. Pour filling into pie crust and refrigerate until set, at least four hours.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
