Spicy Autumn Pumpkin Pie

My mother made wonderful pies. I never have been able to make a really great pie shell so I buy the ready made ones. The pumpkin pie recipe was the result of playing with the ingredients for a few years to get the spiciness that I love. Hope you enjoy it too.

1 can pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can evaporated milk
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix together well and place in an unbaked pie shell. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 40-50 minutes or until firm in center.

Now if you want to see a really great tutorial for pie shells go to visit Warm Pie, Happy Home. Now Ruth Anne is a gal who can make pies. Wish I lived next door!

  1. Mmmm ~ that looks so good. My boys were just asking for a Pumpkin Pie. They usually only get them from their Grandma at Thanksgiving. Maybe I'll surprise them with an early one this year!

    Thank you for sharing. I just posted about my love for Pumpkin spice and posted a recipe for my Pumpkin bars.

    Love the autumn blog theme. So cozy & warm.
