User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


This classic pumpkin pie is made with brown sugar and spices, a must for Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks to Verla for sharing this recipe.


  • 1 3/4 cups canned or cooked pumpkin puree
  • 1 can (approx. 14 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
  • whipped cream or whipped topping
  • freshly grated nutmeg, optional


Combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and salt in a large mixing bowl; beat until smooth and well blended. Pour mixture into the unbaked pie shell. Bake on lowest rack of 350° oven for about 50 minutes, or until set. Cool on rack. To serve, top pumpkin pie with whipped cream or whipped topping and a little freshly grated nutmeg, if desired.
