TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings


  • Pastry for a 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 eggs
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • 1. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry. Trim and flute edges; set aside. In a bowl, combine the pumpkin, honey, cinnamon, salt, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Add the eggs, evaporated milk and milk. Pour into crust. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 375° for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • 2. From the remaining pastry, cut out three 3-in. leaves and three 5-in. x 1/2-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 at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Arrange decorations on cooled pie. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"Delicious! I couldn't even taste the honey. It was a very authentic pumpkin pie flavor/texture. I hav Celiac, and just baked it without a crust. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9x13. Worked out great!"

"Didn;t really like this one. I thought it was bland, so I fed it to the horses, a couple of them loved it, one was indifferent"

"At first I wasn't sure if it would turn out all right because it seemed liquidy before i put it into the oven. Once took it out I let it cool down. I added some whip cream to the top of it and it was just delicious."
