Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie

Carla A.

This is the only pumpkin pie recipe I've ever used. It's been in the family for at least sixty years! Since, in our family, one pie is never enough, I like to triple the filling recipe and divide it into two pie shells, since, as my Mom always says, "No body likes a skimpy pie!" (Of course, this will add a few minutes to the baking time, too.) Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com.

I changed a few things in this recipe that I thought made it better. They are: Used light brown sugar in place of the white sugar. Replaced the corn syrup with 1 tablespoon of molasses and 1 tablespoon of honey. Added 1/8 teaspoon of allspice and 1/8 teaspoon of cloves

It was my first time making pumpkin pie and for any first timers YES, the batter is very runny but don't worry it will work! Wish I knew this before hand cause I started to freak out a bit pouring the batter into the pie crusts. Best pumpkin pie flavor I have ever tasted :)

This recipe made a fabulously thick pumpkin pie. It was a hit during Thanksgiving and I didn't have to change a thing.
