Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie.

Thanksgiving.

What do you think of when you think of pumpkin pie?

For most people, it would probably be Thanksgiving or at least Fall. That it what I use to think of! But now, since our garden produces pumpkins so well, and I have learned how easy it is to prepare and freeze pumpkins, we have pumpkin pies throughout the year. They are no longer reserved for once or twice a year!

The following Pumpkin Pie recipe appeals to an efficient type-A personality like me – it is all mixed up in the blender making for very little clean up! And, it is delicious. I am working on my type-A tendencies and having a large family has really helped. But, nevertheless, I tend to be obsessive about dirty dishes and trying to get things done the most efficient way possible! Oh well, back to pumpkin pie…here’s the recipe!

Preheat oven to 425F.

Have ready: 9" pie crust. Here is my Homemade Pie Crust recipe.
Ingredients
  • 2c. cooked pumpkin
  • 1½c milk
  • 1c raw sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ⅛ tsp cloves (opt.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla - make your own!

    I buy all my real salt and spices from my affiliate partner Mountain Rose Herbs because of their superior quality. Their herbs & spices are organic, non-irradiated plus, I think they are more aromatic and full flavored than any others.
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the blended mixture into a pie shell.
  4. Bake 15min. at 425F, then reduce heat to 350F and bake 45min. longer or until a fork inserted comes out clean.
  5. Enjoy!
Notes
This is melt-in-your mouth good, as is, but try it served with whipped cream - it's heavenly!

    Actually, I don't think I have made a "single" pie in probably twenty years. One pie would not go very far as a treat with my family!

    • My Pumpkin Pie recipe is similar to this. I also mix it in a blender. You can fully prepare several recipes and freeze so next time you need a pumpkin pie all you do is thaw, put in a crust and bake :)
