Pumpkin Pie Recipe!

TLMM finally gave me her family's secret pumpkin pie recipe and here it is!!

Pie filling:

1 cup condensed milk
1 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
3 eggs- beat first
1 small can pumpkin

Dry ingredients.

Warm the condensed milk and the regular milk in a saucepan.

Beat eggs and add dry ingredients.

Mix in pumpkin and then mix in warmed milks.

Pour in pie shell (we used pre-made).  The pre-made pie shells are high quality products and make multiple pie baking so much easier.  

Bake in 425 degree oven for 15 minutes and then turn the heat down to 375 degrees and bake for another 30-45 minutes until knife put in center comes out clean.  

This pie is wonderful- just wait until you smell it baking.  Mmmm.  My favorite holiday baking smell.  Make some fresh whipped cream and you have the perfect end to your holiday meal...and the eggs.
