My Grandmother's Pumpkin Pie
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup cooked, mashed pumpkin (or 100% canned pumpkin)
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 small can evaporated milk (5 oz.)
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cinnamon to taste (I use 1 or 1½ tsp.)
  • ready made pie crust
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients well with a mixer. (Mixture will be pretty soupy.)
  2. Pour into 2 deep dish pie shells. (Don't overfill or they will bubble over during baking.)
  3. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes.
  4. Then reduce heat to 350.
  5. Bake until center is set and edges are browned.
  6. NOTE: You may use canned pumpkin; cooked, mashed sweet potatoes; or cooked, mashed butternut squash instead of cooked, mashed pumpkin. They all taste equally yummy in this recipe!
