Pumpkin Pie

Use a deep dish 9 or 91/2 pie plate and use flaky pie dough for the crust.

Ensure eggs milk and cream are at room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Ingredients:

2 eggs
1 egg yolk
2 cups of fresh pumpkin or pumpkin puree in a can
¾ cup milk
¾ cup heavy cream
¼ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon grated nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground allspice or clove
½ teaspoon salt

Directions:

Whisk egg yolk in small bowl and brush pie dough. Allow egg wash to dry.
Please note… the above step is optional, but the reason we suggest it is because the egg forms a moisture barrier between the crust and the filling and helps to keep the crust for getting soggy and soaked with the pumpkin filling.

Whisk eggs in a large bowl and whisk in all remaining ingredients. Pour into a prepared pie plate and bake until the filling sets up. It should take for 40 to 45 minutes. You will be able to tell when it is done when you nudge the pie the center will quiver.

Let the pie cool completely before you refrigerate. For the best pumpkin pie flavor allow it to refrigerate for a day or two before serving.
