My granddaughter, Casey, always requests this particular pie for her birthday. It's so easy and so good.

***Most of the time I have frozen pumpkin I put up, which I use in this pie whenever I have it. It takes about 1 1/2 cups of the frozen pumpkin but be sure to thaw and drain it well.

How to Make PUMPKIN PIE for CASEY

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 425. Dab a little egg white or milk in bottom of curst to prevent it from being soggy.
  2. Mix all ingredients (except for pie shell) together & pour into pie shell. Place onto a cookie sheet in case of a spill-over. Sometimes I use a 9" pie shell and pour the rest in two oven-proof bowls for Casey since she doesn't eat the crust.
  3. Bake on 425 for 15 minutes then cover edges of crust with aluminum foil (or ring if you have one).
  4. Lower temperature to 350 & bake for an additional
    40-45 minutes or when knife inserted in center of pie comes out clean.
  5. ***If using frozen pumpkin be sure to thaw and drain it well. I use about 1 1/2 cups once drained.

    ****You can also use heavy cream or half and half. I'm sure I have even used regular milk before.
  6. Pumpkin Spice:

  7. When using canned pumpkin I prefer this brand from Aldi over the Libby's brand. This is awesome pumpkin. It's so rich and pretty like pumpkin suppose to be.
