Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar (I use 1/2 cup white plus 1/2 cup dark brown)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can (15 oz.) solid pack pumpkin
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) evaporated milk
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell (I use a 10 inch pie pan)
  • Whole nutmeg for grating.

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 425F.
  • Add the ingredients to a large bowl in order, mixing as you go.
  • Pour into the pie shell.
  • Grate nutmeg over the top.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350F.
  • Bake 40 to 50 minutes (if using a 10-inch pan bake for 30 o 40 minutes), or until a knife inserted close to the center comes out clean.
  • Cool.
  • Serve or refrigerate.
