Pumpkin Pie

Why mess with greatness? The pumpkin pie recipe on the back of the One-Pie Pumpkin can is pretty awesome. The Pillsbury crusts are good too, though I am sure there are homemade crusts out there that would be even better; you have to use the 80/20 rule and ask yourself….is it worth the time and effort? Maybe.Sometimes.But. IMO not when you are getting a complete Thanksgiving meal together.

  • 1 can One Pie Pumpkin
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp salt
  • T butter, melted
  • 1 12oz can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • cup molasses
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • note: I do not add the lemon juice that the recipe on the can lists
  • I recommend prepping your pie crust first and then continuing.
    • if you are using the Pillsbury crusts, follow the single filled pie crust directions
  • Preheat oven to 450
  • Sift sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg together
  • Mix this with content of one can One Pie Pumpkin
  • Add beaten eggs, melted butter, molasses, and milk
  • Line a 9-inch pie plate, pour in contents and bake at 450
  • After 15 minutes, reduce temperature to 350 and continue to bake for 50 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean from center)
