Classic Pumpkin Pie

1 Comment

This custardy version tastes best with fresh pumpkin puree. Use a sugarpie pumpkin for best results. Adapted slightly from Martha Stewart Living (to add more spice of course!)

Ingredients:

1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups fresh pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin
3 eggs
2-3 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk

Pie dough

Directions:

To make pumpkin puree:

Preheat oven to 350. Slice the pumpkin in half and scrape out the seeds and string (an ice cream scoop works well). Place pumpkin cut-side down in a roasting pan with 1/2 cup of water. Bake 45-90 minutes until soft, checking often and adding more water if needed. When the pumpkin is cool enough, peel off the skin and the stem and puree in a food processor or blender until smooth.

To make pie:

Preheat oven to 450. Place a baking sheet at the bottom of the oven to catch any drips. In a bowl, beat together the sugar, cornstarch, salt, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin puree and eggs. Add the evaporated milk and stir.

Fit pastry dough into a 9-inch pie pan, trimming the edges and piercing the sides and bottom with a fork. Fill pie shell with pumpkin mixture. 

Bake at 450 for 10 minutes, then turn down the heat to 350 and bake for 30 minutes more.

This spice blend is perfection! The cardamom is a nice touch. I used 3/4 cup brown sugar, 3 tsp of the spice mix (it wasn’t too spicy) and 1.5 cups of heavy whipping cream. It was delicious!
