That wonderful Thanksgiving meal must have done something to my head yesterday. I tried to post last night before going to bed, and it wouldn't accept my password. Possibly because this morning I realized it was the wrong one. HA!
I had a request for my moms Pumpkin Pie recipe, so here it is:
Beat together in large bowl:
3 cups pumpkin (large can)
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups evaporated milk
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Pour in 2 pie shells. (9 inch)
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes, then turn heat down to 325 degrees.
Continue baking until set, about 35 - 40 minutes.
Check for doneness my inserting knife just off center. If it comes out clean, the pie is done.
You can use frozen pie crusts. Or, we prefer our own:
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup shortening (we use the butter flavor shortening)
5 - 6 Tbsp. cold water, adding 1 Tbsp. at a time
Stir the water in with a fork, until the dough sticks together enough to be rolled out.
Roll out dough on a floured surface, put in two 9 inch pie plates.
After the pie is baked, cool on wire racks. Then keep in fridge. The pie is much better cold!
