This is a recipe for a traditional pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. It has just the right blend of spices.
We cut the pies into 8 pieces, and make enough for everyone to have a slice. If you are serving pumpkin pie without other desserts, you might want to cut it into 6 pieces.
If we have pumpkin pie spice, we use it as listed below. Otherwise this is a good good recipe for pumpkin pie spice is: 1 1/4 t cinnamon. ½ t ginger, ½ t nutmeg, ¼ cloves.
This pie goes well with fresh whipped cream. To make whipped cream, put your mixing bowl and whisk in the freezer over night. Add 1 cup HEAVY whipping cream, 1 t vanilla, and 2 T powdered sugar in the mixing bowl. Mix on high for 3-5 minutes until the cream holds a soft peak. Light whipped cream will take a really long time to set up, so make sure you have heavy whipped cream.
