Pumpkin Recipes

I felt bad leaving you all alone with all that pumpkin (see previous post) and no recipes to use it in! So, here are two – sorry, no pictures this time – I haven’t made them yet myself!


1 1/2 cups of mashed pumpkin (remember to strain it first to remove excess moisture!)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
2 eggs
1 9″ pie shell (scratch, refrigerated, or frozen)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat eggs in small bowl.
Add brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, evaporated milk, and beaten eggs to the mashed pumpkin.
Mix until blended.
Carefully pour this mixture into the pie shell. Fill to within 1/4″ of the edge of the crust.
Place pie on a cookie sheet and bake for 50 minutes, or until a knife insertedinto the center
comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool for at least 30 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
