There's nothing like the classic pumpkin pie to make you feel at peace. It's really hard to mess up a good pumpkin pie recipe, and I've stolen my mother-in-laws, so it's just about perfect. Put a dollop of freshly whipped cream on top and you'll be in heaven!
2 - 9 inch pastry shells
1 large can pumpkin
2 - 14 oz cans sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp nutmeg
Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, and spices. mix well and turn into pie shells. Bake 15 minutes, reduce oven to 350° and continue to bake 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean. Cool before cutting. Garnish with whipped cream.
