Fall Recipe: Pumpkin Pie


Fall is definitely here and one of my favorite Holidays is approaching – Thanksgiving! I love spending time with my family, but I also love the food! One of my favorite desserts for Thanksgiving is Pumpkin Pie! I have to admit though, I’ve been craving it since early last month!

  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 -9 inch unbaked pie crust

  2. Mix pumpkin, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves until well combined.
  3. Add eggs, evaporated milk, and heavy cream. Mix everything until completely smooth.
