1.5 Cup  pumpkin purée (398ml or 13.5 oz can)
1 Cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1.2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger

2 eggs


Whisking ingredients for pumpkin pie

1. Place pumpkin purée and spices into a large mixing bowl.
2. Mix well to incorporate all spices.
3. In a small bowl beat the eggs and add the evaporated milk, mixing well.
4. Pour the egg and milk mixture into the pumpkin purée mixture.  Using a whisk, whisk for 3-4 minutes.

Roll the pastry to fit the pie shell. Folding the dough into quarters makes it easy to transfer the dough from the countertop to the pie plate.  Using a fork prick several holes across the bottom of the pie crust.  Place into a preheated 375 degree oven for 7-8 minutes.
Pour pumpkin mixture into the shell and return to oven.

Bake 350 degrees for approximately 50-55 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
