After many years of experimenting it turns out that the secret to pumpkin pie is whiskey! Not enough that it becomes boozy, just enough to give it a tiny almost unidentifiable something extra. That said, the whiskey isn't strictly necessary, but like the title says, it definitely makes it better.
- 1/2 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups pumpkin
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon cloves
- 1 2/3 cup evaporated milk
- 2 tablespoons whiskey
- 1 pie crust
Grate the ginger. Preheat oven to 425.
In a blender, mix together eggs, pumpkin, sugar, salt, spices, evaporated milk and whiskey.
Pour in prepared crust.
Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce oven to 350 and continue baking, 45 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.
Cut into slices and enjoy.
