Pumpkin pie filling recipe without evaporated milk

Pumpkin Pie RecipesI am from the mountains of NC near Asheville. This is best pumpkin pie you will ever eat! My Mema actually used what she called "Candy Roaster", which is actually squash that they always grew in their garden. I don't garden so I use pumpkin and have even used canned pumpkin.

I don't have any canned milk and want to make fresh pumpkin pie. The recipe it calls for it. Is there a way to use regular milk instead?

I have always used just regular milk in my pumpkin pie. I just follow the recipe on the back of the can and substitute the same amount of whole or 2% milk. It makes a little bit lighter pie. But it is really good.
