I was so surprised to get a call from Doug Lantz’s grandma, who is 96 years young, asking me to send her a recipe for pumpkin pie. She said she has never been able to make a good one. After a conversation with her, I offered to make a pie to see if she liked it. She said, “No, I want to learn to make one myself.”

So, Grandmother Collins, here is one I make. I hope you like it.

Pumpkin Pie

2/3 cup sugar

2 Tbsp. flour

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. nutmeg

½ tsp. cloves

½ tsp ginger

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 cups cooked pumpkin

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup milk

1 Tbsp. butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together sugar, flour, salt and spices and set aside.

Mix cooked pumpkin, beaten eggs, milk and melted butter in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients and mix well.

Bake at 350 degrees in an uncooked pie shell for 35 to 45 minutes or until firm.

Sometimes I warm my filling before I put it in the crust.

If this doesn’t satisfy you, we will try another one. I have several recipes, but I like this one best.
