Auntie's Pumpkin Pie

Auntie's   Pumpkin Pie created by Brian Holley

My nephew's ask for this pie on every holiday and special occasions. We vary the crusts often...favourites are ginger cookie crust and shortbread crust. My secret ingredient is to put the whipping cream into the filling to mellow all the lovely spices I use...

    This had a silkier texture and additional delicious spices than the traditional recipe on the back of canned pumpkin. Whipping cream vs evaporated milk, etc. Those differences are what made it one of the better pumpkin pies I've tried. I did use your suggestion of a gingersnap crust and loved it. Not only did it bake beautifully, it added to the flavor. Thank you for sharing our holiday table!

    Wonderful filling to this pie. Made in 10" square dish,, added extra pumpkin and one more egg.We live in Spain and although pumpkin is popular here, if you have a garden you grow some.BUT, it is mainly used for soup.I have cooked pies crumbles and all sorts for my Spanish friends, they are amazed that you can do so much with pumpkin.We cannot always get the ingredients here so a little imagination is called for, I had to use star anise, but the result was FAB.THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE RECIPE.good luck Brian Holley
