Ingredients

  • 1 medium pie pumpkin (about 3 pounds)
  • 2/3 cup sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)

Directions

  1. Wash pumpkin; cut a 6-in. circle around stem. Remove top and set aside. Remove loose fibers and seeds from the inside and discard or save seeds for toasting. In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and salt; sprinkle around inside of pumpkin.
  2. Replace the top. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 325° for 1-1/2 hours or until very tender. Cool.
  3. Scoop out pumpkin; puree in a blender until smooth. Place 2 cups pureed pumpkin in a large bowl. Add the ginger, nutmeg and the remaining sugar and cinnamon. Stir in the eggs, evaporated milk and milk.
  4. Line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry; trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate. Flute edges or decorate with pastry leaves. Pour filling into crust.
  5. Cover edges with foil. Bake at 375° for 75-80 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Editor's Note: Additional pastry will be needed to decorate pie with pastry leaves.
