The Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Thanksgiving has come and gone again but it wouldn’t be the same without our traditional pumpkin pie. You’d be surprised to know that I had never even tasted a pumpkin pie growing up. I don’t know why either, my mom always made sweet potato pie for us and I actually thought there was no difference between the two. Actually they are quite different in taste. Pumpkin I find is more pungent than sweet potatoes, and actually they had to grow on me before I could really like it. Well, I have a great recipe for the perfect pumpkin pie to be enjoyed every Thanksgiving.

1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Whisk pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, spices and salt in medium bowl until smooth. Pour into crust. Bake 15 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue baking 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted 1 inch from crust comes out clean. Cool. Garnish as desired. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.
