Classic Pumpkin Pie

Classic Pumpkin Pie
This recipe makes two 9-inch deep dish pies. They're so delicious, you won't have to worry about what to do with the second pie. 


Preparation Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Combine the white and brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs lightly. Add the pumpkin to the eggs, alternating with the sugar and spice mixture. Gradually add the evaporated milk and vanilla extract.

Pour into the prepared pie shells. Do not overfill the pies (there may be some filling left over). Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then turn the oven down to 350 and continue to bake for an additional 40-50 minutes. Pie is done when knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with ginger nibs and cool on wire racks.

Serve with whipped cream.

Helpful Hints

You can substitute the individual spices in this recipe for an equal amount of The Spice House's Pumpkin Pie Spice. Pie crusts can be purchased pre-made, otherwise we find that the Joy of Cooking cookbook's recipe for standard pie crust is fantastic.

DEARS DEARS DEARS — I love The Spice House, you have been my only spice purveyor since the early days, sharing the block w Usinger’s … (then you followed us to Evanston and Chicago — my lucky day!) … I have never before felt compelled to send a “review” but this pie takes the, er, well, okay, cake. But — seriously:
Too. Much. Sugar.
I have riffed on the spices over the decades, and NO ONE makes a better bite than TSH — but — I use about a THIRD of the total sugar content you’ve got going in this recipe (a combo of white/brown, or sometimes just brown) — and once in a while, if I REALLY want it “sweet” I do add a smidge of one of your vanillas.
I will also say — my dear departed grandmother (born at the turn of the previous century) always added a spoonful of molasses …
I guess I’m just not a Sweets kinda girl.
And, such a fan of The Flat Pack. Nice move. Totally love it.


freeze the leftover batter and throw into chili. mix a batch of pumpkin muffins with mini chocolate chips. cookies. into white/yellow cake mix. use your imagination. waste not what not!! Enjoy
