The original recipe came from my Grandma Beck. I have added the nutmeg and vanilla, and increased the spices. My friends tell me "this tastes like my grandma used to make, just a bit spicier." Exactly! This is a very flavorful pumpkin pie.
In a large bowl beat together the pumpkin, eggs and brown sugar. Add the milk and vanilla extract and blend. Add the salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg and beat until the filling is well-blended and smooth.
Pour the filling into the pie shell. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350° and bake another 45 minutes until the filling is firm and the crust is golden.
