Pumpkin Pie - from OLD Betty Crocker Cookbook (when I was in high school!) From the kitchen of kelpiep

For 9” pie:

  • 1 3/4 c mashed cooked or canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 3/4 c milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 c brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 T granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t ginger
  • 1/2 t nutmeg
  • 1/4 t cloves

Heat oven to 425ยบ (hot). Beat all ingredients together. Pour into pastry-lined pie pan. (For crispness, have bottom pastry a little thicker than 1/8”.) Bake 45 to 55 min., or until a silver knife inserted 1” from side of filling comes out clean. The center may still look soft but will set later. Serve slightly warm or cold.

I often have some left over, and put it into a ramekin in the oven with the pie. Makes a nice single serving of pumpkin custard. Just watch it, as it will get done much before the pie.
