Hi Friends! As we all know, Fall and Thanksgiving holidays are not complete without a wholesome and hearty slice of pumpkin pie! I am here to tell you that my Grandma made an extra special, extra good pumpkin pie!! This recipe uses fresh pumpkin, not pumpkin out of a can so that makes all the difference! Good for holidays or anytime at all.
1 Cup of steamed and strained pumpkin
2/3 Cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 well beaten eggs
2 cups of cream or rich milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix well. Pour into a pastry lined pie tin, sprinkle with a little sugar over the top to make is brown nicely and bake until solid.
NOTE: Separate eggs, beating yolk and whites separate and folding in egg whites last.
A delicious addition to this pie is to place in your pie shell, marshmallows to cover the bottom. Then pour in pumpkin mixture and bake. Marshmallows dissolve through filling making it fluffy!
Very easy recipe and tasty too!
