Classic Pumpkin Pie

Pin It

We're still on a pumpkin kick around here and probably will be for a while.
It is fall after all!

I found this recipe in an old Cooking Light magazine.
Not sure what issue, since I am a recipe hoarder and tear them out of magazines like crazy.

I cheated and used a thawed frozen pie crust and it turned out great.

Classic Pumpkin Pie
recipe from Cooking Light

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. salt
1 (12oz.) can low-fat evaporated milk
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
1 (15 oz.) can unsweetened pumpkin (I used Libby's pure pumpkin)

1 unbaked pie shell (I used deep dish)

Position oven rack to lowest position.
Preheat oven to 425°.
To prepare filling, combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add pumpkin, and stir with a whisk until smooth.
To prepare crust, roll dough into an 11-inch circle; fit into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Fold edges under and flute.
Pour pumpkin mixture into the crust. Place pie plate on a baking sheet. Place baking sheet on lowest oven rack. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° (do not remove pie from oven); bake an additional 50 minutes or until almost set. Cool completely on wire rack.
