Recipe - Pumpkin Pie

I love pumpkin pie…really. I’ve been wanting to make one and then realized that it’s actually quite simple if you don’t make it with completely fresh ingredients that you prepare yourself (mushing your own pumpkin, etc). Also, I didn’t have a car this time to create pie crust (see Cheesecake post to understand the reference) so had to use a pre-made pie crust. Anyhow, this turned out quite well.

Step 1: Ingredients (serving size: 9 inch pie)
  • whipped cream (for topping)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 pie crust, 9 inch
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 14 oz condensed milk
  • 15 oz pumpkin puree

Step 2: Creating the filling
Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Place all ingredients except the pie crust in a mixing bowl…and mix!

Step 3: Baking and completion
Pour your filling into the pie crust and place in the oven for about 15 minutes. Change the heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for the remaining 35-40 minutes or whenever you place a knife in about an inch from the crust and it comes out clean.
