My Grandma Julia could bake pies like no one else. She shared her recipes with my Mom who passed them on to me. It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without her Pumpkin Pie, nor Christmas without the Pecan. She had a unique way of cutting a pie too; two cuts! One pie for four people! Mmm... Great memories!
Directions for two pies:
In a large bowl, mix 2/3 of large can of pumpkin and 6 eggs. Beat well.
Add to that 1 1/2 c. sugar. Beat again.
Mix into that 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1/2 level tsp. cloves, 1/2 heaping tsp. allspice. Add 3 cups of milk and mix again. Put this mixture into 2 - 9" pie shells.
Bake at 400°for 15 min. Then turn down to 325° for 45 min. Test with a knife.
