How To Make mom's punkin pie

  • 1

    Filling This makes enough for 2 pies. To the 29 oz can of pumpkin add the eggs, sugar, salt pumpkin pie spice and the canned milk or you can use half and half. Mix together all of the above so there is no lumps and pour into the pie shells. Bake 40 min or more or until when you stick a knife in the middle it comes out clean. Cool the pie and when time to serve either put whip cream on top or to the side. Eat and enjoy.
