Pumpkin pie

Here's Amy carving a spider!

With 4 pumpkins turned into spooky lanterns there was an awful lot of flesh to work with! We bought ready-made pastry bases and then followed the recipe below:

For the filling:

1lb pureed pumpkin
1 large tin of condensed milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 tspoon ground ginger
1/2 tspoon ground nutmeg
pinch salt

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees
To the pureed pumpkin add everything else and mix well
Bake for 15 mins at 200 degrees then turn heat down to 170 for another 35 mins.
You'll know it's done when it's set like an egg custard.

I'm honoured, Janice! Thank you so much!
Do I get a cup, huh, huh, do I? And a rosette? What about a shiny medal on a velvet cushion? Money? Okay, biscuits, then?

I was looking for a recipe for pumpkin pie and couldn't find one, so I didn't bother getting a pumpkin this year. Think I may have to get one next year now. That spider and ghost are both great.
