  • Dough for double-crust pie
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll half of dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge.
  2. In a bowl, combine pumpkin, honey, cinnamon, salt, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Add eggs, evaporated milk and milk. Pour into crust. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 45-50 minutes. Cover edge loosely with foil during the last 15 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning. Remove?foil. Cool on a wire?rack.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll remaining dough to 1/8-in.-thick. Cut out three 3-in. leaves and three 5x1/2-in. strips. Using a sharp knife, cut veins in leaves. Wrap each strip of dough around the handle of a wooden spoon; place spoons upside down on a baking sheet. Place leaves, vein side up, on the rounded side of spoons. Bake until golden brown, 8-10 minutes. Arrange on cooled pie. Refrigerate leftovers.
