In case you haven’t chosen a recipe for pumpkin pie yet, here’s the one I like . . . . this year. It’s a richer and creamier adaptation of Libby’s classic pumpkin pie. Thanks to Better Homes and Gardens (November 2011) for the idea to cut letters out of pie dough scraps. I bought a set of small alphabet cookie cutters that I’m pretty sure you’ll be seeing again in other projects.
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon allspice
- 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
- 1 (15 ounce) can pure pumpkin
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1- 9-inch unbaked pie crust (I used my recipe for Yogurt PIe Crust)
- Combine first 6 ingredients in medium bowl.
- Whisk eggs and pumpkin together in another bowl. Add spice mixture and whisk well. Add cream and milk and whisk until smooth.
- Optional: Pour pie filling through a medium sieve into microwave-safe bowl for maximum smoothness.
- Heat filling in microwave for two minutes, whisking several times.
- Fill pie shell. Shield crust around the outside of the pie with aluminum foil or a pie shield which is well worth the money.
- Bake at 350 degrees 35-40 minutes or until middle jiggles like jello.
