I love pumpkin pie. I will eat many pieces of it, even having it for breakfast. Pumpkin is a vegetable, right? I do like my pie spicy though and this one takes care of that.
What you’ll need:
1 can pumpkin
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. allspice
1 2/3 cup milk (or 12 oz can evaporated milk)
1 unbaked pie shell
Beat the eggs with a whisk. Add the sugar and then pumpkin, mixing well. Add the spices and mix until the spices are well distributed. Add the milk and mix. (I used 2/3 cup of half and half and 1 cup of milk) Pour the great smelling mixture into an unbaked pie shell. Sometime I’ll share how to make a very easy homemade crust, but I was too lazy for that this time so I used a Pillsbury refrigerated crust.
Bake the pie at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn the heat down to 350 degrees and bake another 45-50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Try not to eat it all yourself.
I’ll hold you to putting up that easy pie crust recipe. I’m a pie crust flunkie, and my oldest, in particular, would *love it* if I actually made a pumpkin pie this year. He usually only gets them when my mom is here. 😛
I like my pumpkin pie the same way and I always have it for breakfast (and lunch and supper until it is all gone!) Make it a great day!
This looks yummy! I’ll have to try your recipe!

I totally agree…the pumpkin pie needs to be spicy! And it is awesome for breakfast 🙂 My husband always thinks I’m nuts when I pull it out to eat in the morning…so glad someone else does it too!
You could get even more ambitious and make your pumpkin puree from scratch. 🙂 I did this year. You can read how here – http://ambertackles.blogspot.com/2015/09/garden-pumpkin-puree-and-pumpkin-pie.html?m=1
