Ready In:
1hr 10mins




  • Prepare and roll pastry for single-crust pie, Line a 9" pie plate with pastry. Trim; crimp edge as desired.
  • In a large bowl stir together eggs, pumpkin, and half-and-half. Stir in sugar, flour, lemon peel, vanilla, salt cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
  • Pour pumpkin mixture into pastry-lined pie plate, To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in 375 F oven for 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl stir together the brown sugar, pecans and butter until combined. Remove foil. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over top of pie. Bake for 20 minutes more or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean and topping is golden and bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate within 2 hours.
  • I don't add the lemon peel, and I add 1/4 tsp ginger, increase the vanilla to 1 tsp, I used fresh cooked pumpkin instead of canned and I omit the topping for a regular pie. For Thanksgiving 2006 I added 3 small gala apples, sliced to the pie.

My passion is cooking, I have been baking and cooking since I was young. With 2 working parents it was essential. <br> <br>I am trained as a Professional Cook, even have a cooking certificate, lol. The best education I ever got was going to cooking school. <br> <br>I spent 3 years cooking in a gas station restaurant and all was well working there, but my heart still wanted to cook for kids. October 2008 I finally got the job I wanted. I been cooking for the kids for just over a year now and I love every day of it. The kids are great, some frustration, but it is all good, they are so smiley everyday, how could you not like work when you have a bunch of smiling faces looking at you. <br> <br>Another good thing about my job is I get the summers off. I had a pretty good summer, I got to tend to my garden and get a bunch of stuff into the freezers, I was given a second freezer this summer. I have been planning on eating mainly out of the freezers so we can save some extra cash for Christmas. <br> <br>I have plans on finding some nutrition courses that I can do online, just for dabbling in, it would sure help with cooking for the kids. <br> <br>I live with my hubby and 3 kids (11,6,5), and one cat, who is part in-door, out-door. <br> <br>I really want to get back into losing weight this school year, it has been 1 1/2 years since I lost about 15 pounds, I have maintained that loss though. I would still like to lose another 10 pounds.
