Pumpkin Pie from Better Homes and Gardens

Prep Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 1 hr 20 mins
Servings: Makes 8 slices


1   recipe Pastry for Single-Crust Pie
1 15-ounce can  pumpkin
1/2 cup  sugar
1 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon  ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon  ground nutmeg
2   eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup  half-and-half, light cream, or milk


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare and roll out Pastry for Single-Crust Pie. Line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry. Trim; crimp edge as desired.

For filling, in a medium bowl combine pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Add eggs. Beat lightly with a fork just until combined. Gradually add half-and-half; stir until combined.

Place the pastry-lined pie plate on the oven rack. Carefully pour filling into pastry shell. To prevent over-browning, cover edge of the pie with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake about 25 minutes more or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate within 2 hours.

Makes 8 slices!
