Granny's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Ganny's pumpkin pie is sure to be the hit of your Thanksgiving buffet. But don't stop there! We serve it for birthdays and weddings too. It is THAT good.

  • 1 c pumpkin
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t cloves
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t allspice
  • 2/3 c sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c scalded milk
  • 1/2 c evaporated milk
  • a few shakes of ginger (optional)
  • whipped cream for topping
  1. Combine pumpkin, salt, cloves, cinnamon, and allspice (also the ginger if using). 

  2. Beat the egg and mix with sugar. Gradually cream the milks into the egg and sugar with a mixer. Combine with the pumpkin mixture and mix until well blended. I was surprised how thin the mixture was. See the picture above. It turned out beautifully. 

  3. Pour into an unbaked pie crust.

  4. Bake 15 minutes at 450. Turn the oven down to 350 and bake for another 40 minutes until a knife blade comes out clean. 40 minutes was perfect in my oven.

  5. Serve with whipped cream and a little grated nutmeg if you like.
