A Pair of Pumpkin Pies for Thanksgiving


a 14-1/2-ounce can stewed pumpkin
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1-1/2 cups sugar (white or brown)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup molasses
1-1/2 cups milk
2 beaten eggs


Into a large bowl sift together the dry ingredients. Add the pumpkin and stir to blend. Add the molasses, beaten eggs, milk, and vanilla; again stir well. Lastly add the melted butter and beat with the egg beater. Then pour immediately into the pie shells, making sure that the pumpkin mixture coats all of the fruit. The apples will rise to the top, and the dates will remain on the bottom. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 45 minutes or until the filling is firm. Serve on Thanksgiving Day – “palm warm,” with lightly whipped cream.

MMMMMMMM! Gonna try this recipe for Thanksgiving and maybe even Christmas. We always get fresh pumpkins for halloween decorations, and always clean and cook them up the day after and freeze the pie filling till needed. My favorite pumpkins to use are the smaller sized "Sugar" pumpkins. TRY THEM! MMMMMMM MMM MMMMM lol Ron
