Wen's Classic Pumpkin Pie|
What can I say? You cannot have a collection of Thanksgiving recipes without having a recipe for pumpkin pie. I am thoroughly aware how picky people are about their pumpkin pies. I cannot promise you that this will be the best pumpkin pie you have ever tasted. I can tell you that it is the best pumpkin pie that I have ever tasted.
Pie pastry for a 9 inch pie plate
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch ground cloves
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup toasted pecans (optional)
1/2 cup heavy cream, whipped (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Beat the eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer until they are light and frothy. Add the brown sugar and corn syrup and beat until they are well incorporated. Mix in the spices. Beat in the pumpkin puree and cream and mix until smooth. Fold in the pecans if desired. Pour the batter into the prepared pie crust. Bake for 1 hour and cool on a rack. Serve with the whipped cream.
