Please could someone give me a American recipe for pumpkin pie?
By Steve from Liverpool, England
This is about as American as it gets: I don't know if you have Libby's brand over there, if so, it should be on the label (at least around our Halloween time (10/31).
Libby's (brand) Pumpkin Pie (this has been on the can since 1950)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 large eggs
1 can (15 oz.) LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
Whipped cream (optional)
MIX sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.
POUR into pie shell.
BAKE in preheated 425° F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° F; bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Top with whipped cream before serving.
If you can't get Libby's canned pumpkin you can use another brand but it won't taste the same. Libby's seems to be thicker. If you can't get canned pumpkin at all you can use canned sweet potatoes drained and mashed for a similar pie. But the Libby's is the real thing.
I agree with everyone else. Libby's pumpkin is the best and the recipe on the can is the best I have ever made and I have tried them all! Hope you can find it there!
I also agree with the Libby's recipe. ;-) If you can't find canned pumpkin or canned pumkin pie filling in the UK you can order it online at this link:
Sometimes either the small and/or the large can is out of stock and I don't know what the shipping cost would be but worth a look see anyway ;-)
