Apple butter lends its fruity flavor to this harvest pie. If you have pumpkin pie spice on hand, use 2 teaspoons of it in place of the cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg called for in the recipe. To make the leaf decoration shown here, prepare pastry for a double-crust pie.
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 cup apple butter
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 eggs
- One 5-ounce can evaporated milk (2/3 cup)
- 1/2 cup milk
- Pastry for single-crust or double-crust pie
- Whipped cream (optional)
Companion recipe: Basic Pie Pastry
In a large mixing bowl combine pumpkin, apple butter, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Add eggs; beat lightly with a rotary beater or wire whisk till combined. Gradually stir in evaporated milk and milk; mix well.
Prepare and roll out pastry as directed. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Trim and crimp a high pastry edge or attach leaf-shaped cutouts. Pour pumpkin mixture into pastry shell. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake about 25 minutes more, or till a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 1 hour. Chill 3-6 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator. If desired, serve with whipped cream.
