I have had this recipe for some time and think that it is a terrific rendition of pumpkin pie. The apple butter lends its fruity flavor to this harvest pie.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
If you love a classic pumpkin pie, you'll love this apple butter twist. It gives the pie a slightly fruity flavor that tastes of fall. The pie's seasoning leans towards more of a cinnamon flavor, but the ginger and nutmeg are in the undertones. Cool and creamy, the filling is exactly what you'd expect from a pumpkin pie. As it cools, the filling does shrink a little from the crust but, add a little extra whipped cream and no one will notice. A delicious pumpkin pie for the holidays.
In a large mixing bowl combine pumpkin, apple butter, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
Add eggs; beat with wire whisk until combined.
Gradually stir in evaporated milk and milk.
Prepare and roll out pastry as directed. Line a 9-inch pastry plate with pastry.
Pour pumpkin mixture into pastry shell.
To prevent over browning, cover edge of pie with foil or a pie shield.
Place in a preheated 375 degree oven for 25 minutes.
Remove foil and bake about 25 minutes more or until a knife in center comes out clean.
Cool on a rack for 1 hour. Chill 3-6 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
