I was given this recipe over 30 years ago. Very versatile, the pumpkin pie is great for using leftovers from your Jack-o’-lanterns. You can even use sweet potatoes in place of the pumpkin, if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups mashed pumpkin or sweet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 2 slightly beaten eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 (6 oz) can evaporated milk
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pastry shell

Directions

Step 1

Thoroughly mix pumpkin or sweet potato with the sugar, salt, and spices.

Step 2

Blend in eggs, milk, and evaporated milk.

Step 3

Pour into an unbaked pastry shell (crimp edges high).

Step 4

Bake in a hot oven 400 degrees for 50 minutes or an inserted knife comes out clean. Cool before serving.
