DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • In a medium pot, add Pumpkin, Butter, Salt, Sugar, Ginger, Nutmeg, and Cinnamon.
  • Simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Do not let pumpkin boil, it will lead to a watery pie. Lower heat if pumpkin looks like it may boil.
  • Remove from heat.
  • In a bowl, beat 5 eggs and one yolk (save extra egg white for crust).
  • Add milk to eggs and stir.
  • Keep stirring and add pumpkin to egg mixture a little at a time.
  • Stir in the Vanilla and Whiskey.
  • Brush egg white over the inside and edge of the pie crust and let egg white dry. This will prevent the crust from getting too soggy and will create a nice shine to the edge of the pie crust.
  • Pour pumpkin evenly into 2 pie crusts.
  • Bake at 450 for 20 minutes then reduce the heat to 325 for 45 minutes.
  • Keep an eye on the pie toward the last 10 minutes. If you see cracks forming take the pies out of the oven, this is a sign of over cooking.
