Oh, my! Pumpkin pie!

I’m sure you’ll see hundreds of pumpkin pie recipes this fall, but I decided to throw in my two cents worth anyway. This is my favorite pumpkin pie recipe. A friend gave it to me after tasting my pumpkin pie one night. After her first taste, she smiled and said, “Oh, my. Do do I have a pumpkin pie recipe for you.” She obviously didn’t think much of my pie. I guess that’s what passes for tact among good friends, but I did get a great recipe out of it. So, we know who the winner is here. Don’t we? Huh?

Oh, my! Pumpkin pie!


1 can pumpkin (16 ounces) or 2 cups

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 ounces)

2 eggs

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground ginger

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

½ teaspoon salt


½ cup brown sugar, packed

¼ cup granulated sugar

½ cup all-purpose flour

½ stick butter (softened)

¼ cup nuts, chopped


Preheat oven 425 degrees. Mix all ingredients for filling, and pour into 9 inch unbaked pastry shell. Bake 15 minutes and then reduce temp. to 350 degrees and bake for 35 minutes.

While pie is baking, make streusel topping:  combine both sugars, flour, and cut in butter till crumbly. Add chopped nuts.

After the 35 minutes at 350 degrees have passed, sprinkle topping over pie and bake 15 more minutes or till golden.
