(I am not sure how different or the same this recipe is for Pumpkin Pie but it is the only one we have ever used)
1 Pie shell (we use the frozen ones)
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt (or a pinch of salt)
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of cloves
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon of ginger
1 can (15 ounce) pumpkin
1 cup of Evaporated milk
Instead of using the spices separately we used the Pumpkin Pie Spice!
Heat oven to 450
Combine spices, eggs and sugar. BEAT WELL
Add in Pumpkin and Milk BEAT WELL
Pour Mix into Pie Shell
Bake at 450 for 10 minutes
Reduce heat to 350 and bake for 40-45 minutes.
Check to see if pie is done when a toothpick is stuck in the middle and comes out clean
Store in the fridge.
Pumpkin Pie is great topped with Cool Whip!!
I think my Nanny got this recipe off of the back of a can of Pumpkin :) haha...Not really sure!! If you have any variations please share!!
