Favorite Pumpkin Pie

My favorite pumpkin pie recipe uses a little more
 sugar and cinnamon that most recipes.
It mixes in minutes.
 First whisk the 2 eggs in a large bowl.
 Then add the remaining ingredients. 
Whisk until smooth.
 Roll out you pie crust. I always used my
 homemade pie crust,
because the crust is a favorite part.
Pour in the filling and bake.
 Sometimes...I swirl a little design on top. 
Combine 2T sour cream and 1/2T milk in a small
 baggie. Snip of a little bit of the corner. 
Make a spiral starting in the center, then drag a 
skewer through to make a scalloped design.
I didn't do that this time, I just swirled it 
randomly. I like the first method better.
 By the way, you can't taste the sour cream.
 Fill you pie shell and carefully put into a
 preheated 400 oven for 50 minutes.
Cool then refrigerate for two hours.
 You can make this a day ahead. 
with the swirl design
classic-without the swirl
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. 
Then ask yourself;
Why don't we make this more often?

Favorite Pumpkin Pie
2 eggs
1 16-oz can pumpkin
1 C sugar
1/2 pint heavy cream (1C)
(you could also use 12oz can
 of evaporated milk)
2 t cinnamon
1/4 t ginger
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t ground cloves
1/4 t salt
Whisk eggs and add remaining ingredients.
Combine well and pour into
the unbaked pie shell,
Bake it at 425 for 15 minutes,
then reduce oven temperature 
to 375 for 40-50 minutes, until set. 
( You can also bake it at 400 for
 45-50 minutes until set.)
Remove, let cool, then refrigerate
for two hours before cutting

Enjoy!
