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
(click here)  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 then and add remaining 
ingredients. Combine well and pour into
 the unbaked pie shell. Bake at 400º for
 45-50 minutes until set, OR
 bake at 425º for 15 minutes then reduce 
the temperature to 350º and bake for 40-50 
minutes. Remove, let cool, then refrigerate 
for two hours before cutting
