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


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

    *You can also make 2 (9") shallow pies out of this if desired.
