Pumpkin Pie From Scratch #Recipe

I have pumpkin fever.  Every time I hit the grocery store I come home with some type of squash or pumpkin.

The other month, a white beautiful pumpkin caught my eye, and I refused to let it go to waste on a pumpkin carving.  Here it is pureed with a bit of water.




We gutted it (saved some seeds to plant and the rest to roast!), cooked it in the oven then pureed it.  I am saving a portion for our morning smoothies and the rest will be pied.

2 cups pumpkin puree
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
½ tsp ginger
1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Bake for 50 minutes or until well done.  Enjoy...and indulge in a dollop of freshly whipped cream!

    You are definitely a mama of all trades. I still have my pumpkins out, but I'm too lazy :)

    I love the thought of using a white pumpkin for a pie...did it look much different or did all of the spices and brown sugar make it look fairly "norm"?? It sounds delicious!
