Isn't this time of year the best? Hot cider, comfort food, cozy fires...And perhaps best of all: Pumpkin Pie!
Here's a Unity Stoakes secret: Pumpkin pie is much easier than you think to make. If you've ever made it before than you know what I'm talking about. Here's my super-fast, super-easy, super-duper Pumpkin Pie recipe.
First, the ingredients:
1 pre-made pie shell
1 can pumpkin
1 can evaporated milk (4% is best)
2/3 cub sugar
2 fresh eggs
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnemon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch of All-spice
Pinch of ground nutmeg
All you have to do is mix everything in a bowel really well. Pour it into the pie shell. Place in a pre-heated oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes; turn temperature down to 350 degrees and bake for another 45-50 minutes. You know pie is done when it firms up and you can stick a knife in the center and it comes out clean.
I usually place on a rack to cool and then toss into the fridge for an hour or so to really harden. Get out the whipped cream and it's pie time.
Enjoy! And Happy Thanksgiving.
