Pumpkin Pie Recipe

1 15 oz can of pumpkin
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon salt
½ nutmeg nutmeg
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 ½ Tablespoon melted butter
1 ½ cups whole milk
1 cup sugar
⅛ cup molasses
2 eggs

Combine ingredients and stir.

The filling recipe comes from the back of the One Pie Pumpkin can. 

Ingredients for Crust

1 cup white flour
¾ cup whole wheat flour (If whole wheat flour is anathema, use all white instead. Whole wheat gives it better flavor.)
1 teaspoon salt (don't leave out)
½ cup canola oil
¼ cup whole milk

Mix together, divide in half.
Roll each half flat between two pieces of waxed paper.

Back to Pumpkin Pie

Put in 9 inch pie pan (with crust).
Bake at 450 for 15 minutes.
Turn oven down to 350 (I turn down to 375).
Bake for 50 - 60 minutes or more.


  1. Those are some great old forks. I always love the (very) old silver you have! I always think of it as a way to remember the family members (or other folks) who used it before and reflect on their lives.

  2. The only pumpkin food I like anymore

  3. My dear sweet sister says that the highest compliment a Southerner can give a pumpkin pie is: Oh my, that is so good. It tastes just like sweet potato pie.
