Here’s a great recipe for ol’ fashioned pumpkin pie. No holiday meal would be complete without it.
1 tbsp/15 mL all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp/2.5 mL salt
1 tbsp/15 mL Watkins Pumpkin Pie Spice
3 large eggs
1-1/2 cups/375 mL mashed, cooked pumpkin (or use canned)
1 cup/250 mL evaporated milk
1 unbaked 9-inch/23-cm pastry pie shell (recipe on Web site)
1 cup/240 mL heavy whipping cream
2 to 4 tbsp/30 to 60 mL powdered sugar (depending on sweetness desired)
1 tsp/5 mL Watkins Original Double-Strength Vanilla
Combine sugar, flour, and salt; beat in eggs. Stir in pumpkin and milk. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 400ºF/205ºC for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Chill the small bowl and beaters of an electric mixer (if in a hurry, place in freezer). Beat the cream in chilled bowl until it begins to thicken. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until stiff. Do not overbeat.
