Topic tags/keywords: recipes pumpkin pie

After cleaning out the pumpkin, I cut it into cubes about 2 inches. These are placed in to a large pan with water, and put on the stove to boil. When the cubes become soft, they are drained; the skin easily removed; and mashed. The stewed pumpkin can be used for pies, soups, or cookies.

What I like about this recipe is that the pumpkin pie is not as thick and pasty as some of the store bought versions, which I do NOT like. Also, the spice is milder than some, which makes for a more delicate flavour.

JR’s Pumpkin Pie makes 2 pies
2 cup: rich whole milk
2 large beaten eggs
1 ½ cups canned pure pumpkin
1 cup maple syrup – You can use brown sugar if you don’t have maple syrup.
2 Tbl melted butter or margarine
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp salt
Two 9-inch unbaked pie shell
Put milk, eggs, pumpkin, syrup, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt in blender. Process at medium speed until blended. Pour into 2 pie shells.
Bake in preheated 400F oven 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350F. Bake 35 minutes, or until centre is still soft but no longer jiggly. Cool to room temperature. Refrigerate to firm up before cutting.

Might have to give this a try … sounds absolutely delicious … and I like you am not a big pumpkin pie lover.

gotta love pumpkin pie.
I haven’t made one in a LONG LONG time.
I used to cut a small slice out of the pumpkin and microwave the whole thing; I then cleaned out the innards and then put the entire thing through the blender (piece at a time) (including the skin). Or something like that.. again, it was a LONG time ago

When you say canned pure pumpkin, I got lost, not the pie mix stuff right, but a cup and a half of the cubed pumpkin?

Thanks!

Definitely NOT the pie mix stuff. Sometimes, one can find PURE pumpkin puree in a can. It works well. Natural pumpkin cooked, cooled and pureed is best though.
