How to Make Better than Libby's Pumpkin Pie! Sshhh! hehe


  1. In large bowl, beat eggs with a whisk, whisk in, stirring, pumpkin. Whisk in sugar, salt and spices, again stirring in with whisk. Slowly whisk in evaporated milk. (I always stir everything with a whisk, it stirs everything in better.) Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, reduce temp to 350, bake 40-50 minutes longer. Pie is done when very center jiggles a little, like jello. And knife inserted about midway comes out clean. Cool for about 2 hours before serving. Pie will set up completely as it cools.

    *You can also make 2 (9") shallow pies out of this if desired.
    Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350, bake 20-30 minutes longer.
