Pumpkin Pie


1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1-1/2 cups cooked or canned pumpkin puree
1 cup milk, scalded
3 eggs
1 unbaked 10-inch pie shell


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, salt, and spices. Stir in the pumpkin. Gradually add the milk.

Separate one of the eggs. Beat together the two whole eggs and 1 egg yolk. Add to the pumpkin. In a separate bowl, beat the egg white until stiff. Fold into the pumpkin mixture.
