Pumpkin Desserts



As promised, today we have 2 delicious pumpkin desserts for you.

The first one is my great-grandmother's 'working heirloom' recipe for Pumpkin Pie.  Unlike most recipes this one has a smooth custardy texture that is heavy on pumpkin flavor but light on pumpkin puree.

Traditional Pumpkin Pie
makes 1 pie

1 unbaked pie shell (bottom only)
1 c. pumpkin or squash puree
1 tbsp flour
3/4 c. sugar
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch ginger
1 egg
1 c. evaporated milk

Beat all ingredients together and pour into unbaked pie shell.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  To help prevent the surface of the pie from splitting I recommend putting a pan of water in the oven with the pie when it bakes.

Next recipe has pictures!  It is one of my favorite takes on pumpkin pie, it is fun and delicious.
