"My cousin and I made pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving one year. Mine was the Martha Stewart recipe from scratch and hers was so much better! I asked her what her secret was and she said Libby's recipe.. I've never gone back on this recipe since! Try the pumpkin roll, too!!!"

Are you making this? 
3/4 cup Granulated sugar
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon Ground cloves
2 large Eggs
1 can (12 oz) Evaporated milk
1 9" Unbaked deep dish pie shell
Whipped cream; optional
1 15-oz can Pure Pumpkin Puree

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



MIX sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

POUR into pie shell.

BAKE in preheated 425 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F; bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Top with whipped cream before serving.

NOTES: 1 3/4 teaspoons pumpkin spice may be substituted for the cinnamon, ginger and cloves; however, the taste will be slightly different. Do not freeze, as this will cause the crust to separate from the filling.

FOR 2 SHALLOW PIES: substitute two 9-inch (2-cup volume) pie shells. Bake in preheated 425 degree F. oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F.; bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until pies test done.

FOR HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING (3,500 to 6,000 ft.): Deep-dish pie- extend second bake time to 55 to 60 minutes. Shallow pies- no change.

"If you like it, you might also try this  Don't let the name of this dessert scare you off! It's called a Dump Cake because of the method of creating it. It really DOES like an upside down pumpkin pecan pie--all the flavors & textures topped with a sweet and slightly crunchy topping--without all of the work!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

I make this pumpkin pie recipe every year for Thanksgiving with a homemade crust and fresh whipped cream. It's always a struggle getting the pie into the oven without the filling slopping over the side, but it's definitely worth it.

Made this for a thanksgiving party and it was a hit. It's super creamy without being too gelatinous. Perfect!
