If it's the crust that makes you nervous about pie-making, this pie is for you. Its nutty, gingery crumb crust is simply patted into the pie plate.—Charlene Chambers, Ormond Beach, Florida

Nutritional Facts

1 piece (calculated without whipped cream) equals 402 calories, 23 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 66 mg cholesterol, 356 mg sodium, 42 g carbohydrate, 4 g fiber, 8 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place pecans in a food processor; cover and process until finely ground. In a large bowl, combine the pecans, flour, ginger and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate.
  2. For filling, in a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, spices and salt until smooth. Beat in pumpkin. Gradually beat in milk. Pour into crust.
  3. Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Garnish with whipped cream and additional cinnamon if desired. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.

"I really enjoyed this pie. The spices really came through without overwhelming the pumpkin flavor. It was really good and will be my new regular pumpkin pie!"

"

I made three of these pies for Thanksgiving. I am not a fan of pumpkin pie but my family loved this recipe. My mom said it was better than a lot of other pies she has had and vowed to eat all three! The recipe itself was extremely simple and straight forward. It didn't take long to make at all.

"It's not Fall if there isn't any Pumpkin Pie! This recipe is soooooo creamy and one of my new favorites. I'm very picky when it comes to pumpkin and sweet potato pie."
