mmmmmm pie!

22 Nov

More random American food purchases, this time a can of  Libby’s Pumpkin, it is just cooked pumpkin, nothing else I tasted it and I didn’t really like it in its natural state. But like many things, add a ton of sugar and some spices and it gets much more interesting. Yes folks Pumpkin Pie!

9 oz short crust pastry

2 beaten eggs

1 can of pumpkin

6oz granulated sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/2 pt evaporated milk

Line a 9 inch flan tin with pastry and blind bake at 220° for 15 minutes, mix the other ingredients together and pour into the pastry case. Turn the oven down to 180° and bake for 40-50 minutes until a knife comes out clean. Allow to cool and serve (with squirty cream).

It got a great review from The Man, and I thought it was much nicer than I remembered (sorry Mum) a little like a custard tart which given the ingredients isn’t surprising and given my literal taste for Americana I would defiantly make it again.
