Sugar 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
Ground ginger 1/2 Teaspoon
Ground cloves 1/4 Teaspoon
Eggs 2 , beaten
Canned pumpkin puree 15 Ounce
Canned evaporated milk 15 Ounce
Deep dish pie shell 1 , follow package instruction



1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F.


2. In a bowl, combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves.

3. In another bowl beat eggs, then stir in the pumpkin pure and sugar spice mixture.

4. Slowly pour evaporated milk while stirring gently.

5. Into the pie shell, pour the mixture and place into the preheated oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degree F and bake for another 40-50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Place aluminum foil around the outer crust of the pie shell to avoid from over browning.
