Christmas jut wouldn't be the same without a pumpkin pie cooking in the kitchen. So much so that December 25th has been named the national pumpkin pie day!!! Click here for a complete list.
I think it might even be against the law not to make one. I would check but I'm too busy cooking.
1/8 tsp. salt
2/3 c. sugar
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg)
2 eggs, beaten
1 2/3 c. milk
1 1/2 c. pumpkin, cooked ad mashed
Sift dry ingredients together first and slowly mix in all wet ingredients. After preparing the pie crust, pour in the pumpkin mixture. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees and bake for an additional 35 minutes or until when a knife inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean. Cool and serve.
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. shortening
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tbsp. water
Cut shortening and salt into flour. Add cold water and mix. Roll out crust on a floured board and place it into a 9 inch pie pan.
