See anything were missing? See a recipe you'd like?
Now, here's my entry for the recipe swap...my MIL's Spicy Pumpkin Pie. It's no ordinary pumpkin pie. It's got that perfect combination of sweet cinnamon and spicy ginger, allspice, cloves and nutmeg. I'm a pumpkin pie fanatic this time of year and this recipe has become the tried-and-true, "classic with a touch of spice" pie that everyone requests at our Thanksgiving table. Enjoy!
MIL's Spicy Pumpkin Pie
1 9-inch unbaked pie crust
1 16-ounce can pumpkin
1 13-ounce can evaporated milk
1/2 C. packed brown sugar
1/2 C. sugar
1-1/2 tsps. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat pumpkin with remaining ingredients until well mixed. Place pie plate on oven rack. Pour pumpkin mixture into pie crust; bake 15 minutes; turn oven to 350 degrees and bake 35 minutes more or until filling is set (knife inserted in middle comes out clean. (I always cover the crust with foil during baking because it usually gets too brown. If you are doing this without crust, no problemo!) Cool and serve topped with Cool Whip or whipped cream.
