Here Linuxmom's traditional pumpkin pie recipe. It was handed-down to me from my mother many years ago. I can still see the worn newspaper clipping she'd take out of her cookbook every year the night before Thanksgiving. It's simple to make, but be sure and have all the spices and ingredients on hand. This is one recipe Linuxmom hasn't altered. It's too good to change!

Step 1: The recipe

2/3 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 Tblsp molasses
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cloves
1 3/4 canned pumpkin
1 1/4 rich milk

Soften the eggs and sugar. Add spices and molasses. Stir in pumpkin and milk.
Pour in prepared pie crust. Bake in 425 degree oven for 45-50 minutes. Cool.
Serve with freshly whipped cream.
the surface looks a little un-even try cooking it at a lower temperature
Didn't know this trick........what temp do you suggest?
umm.. i don't really know, just cook at a lower temperature for more time, this is only a theory, i have no experience making pies... oh and about quarter way into baking (when it's firm yet pliable) take it out of the oven, get a spoon and a cup of water, dip the spoon in the water and smooth over the surface of the pie
Whatchyou talkin bout willis?
Great job! Sorry about the pictures, I had to take them with my phone instead of my camera (charger died). Can't wait to eat it!
Just imagine what I could do with that instructables rolling pin.....
<sup></sup>hit me over the head when I try to take some before its done?<sup></sup><br/>
No, no, no....how about a nice apple pie ala mode!
nice job mom
