Pumpkin Pie


I have never been a huge fan of pumpkin pie until I met my husband. I have always felt that there are so many other decadent pies out there, why would I bother eating basic pumpkin pie? Each year around Thanksgiving he requests that I make this pie using the recipe on the can of Libby's brand pumpkin. I found out that this recipe has been on Libby's brand cans of pumpkin since 1950. I can honestly say old fashioned pumpkin pie has grown on me.

Famous Pumpkin Pie

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can (15 oz.) pure pumpkin
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) evaporated milk
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
  • Whipped cream (optional)
DIRECTIONS
MIX sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

POUR into pie shell.

BAKE in preheated 425° F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° F; bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Top with whipped cream before serving.

**I prefer to make my own Whipped Cream for the topping SEE MISC CATEGORY FOR RECIPE
***(You can also make this recipe sugar free by using 1 c. 100% pure Maple Syrup instead of 3/4 c. sugar. This will still have 100% of the flavor. My husband and I did a taste test with both pies side by side. We could not tell a noticeable difference!
bon appétit
