Traditional Pumpkin Pie

Traditional Pumpkin Pie

3/4 cup granulated
1-1/2 cups (12 oz
            can) evaporated milk
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 tsp.ground
1/2 tsp. ground
3/4 tsp. ground
1 & 3/4 cups (
            15 once can)
pumpkin filling
TIP: You can substitute pumpkin pie spice for all the individual spices.
Use 3 tsp. of pumpkin
        pie spice instead.
Combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves in a small bowl. Beat the eggs lightly in a separate large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and dry mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

Press a pre-made pie crust into a 9-inch deep dish pie crust and cook according to directions on the package. Pour mixture into the pie shell.
Cook in a pre-heated 425º F. oven for 15 minutes, then reduce the temp to 350º F., and bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a knife tip inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack or a cool counter top for 2 hours before serving. This also gives it time to set up, so when you cut it and set it on a plate, it will stay in one piece.
Store in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Chilling will cause the crust to separate from the pie slightly but it’s better then getting botulism.

Top with a whipped cream and there you have it! A classic pumpkin pie!
