“Deliciously Autumnal: A Homemade Pumpkin Pie Recipe to Savor”
Making a pumpkin pie is a delightful way to celebrate the flavors of autumn. Here’s a simple recipe to guide you through the process:
- 1 ½ cups of pumpkin puree
- 1 ½ cups of evaporated milk
- ¾ cup of granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon of ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon of ground cloves
- 2 large eggs
- 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- In a mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Stir until well blended.
- In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Add the beaten eggs to the pumpkin mixture and mix until everything is thoroughly combined.
- Pour the pumpkin filling into the unbaked pie crust, spreading it evenly.
- Carefully place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes.
- After 15 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (175°C) and continue baking for an additional 40 to 50 minutes, or until the filling is set. To check if the pie is done, insert a knife into the center. If it comes out clean, the pie is ready.
- Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack. Allow it to cool completely before serving or refrigerating.
- For added indulgence, serve the pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
