Traditional Pumpkin Pie

All of us like frozen pumpkin pie, but some of us need the old-fashioned original occasionally as well. Here's the recipe we like to use.

Pumpkin Pie

2 eggs, beaten
1 can (16 oz) pumpkin, or 1 3/4 cup puree
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
pastry for a one-crust pie

Heat oven to 425°. Combine all ingredients and pour into the pie shell. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° and bake about 45 minutes longer.Cool and serve with sweetened whipped cream.
