You’ll find this a pie that’s not as pumpkin-y as many recipes.  We love it! Serve it with whipped cream, of course.


  • 2 T butter, softened
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 c pumpkin (from a can)
  • 1 c milk
  • 1/4 c bourbon (optional)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Mix ingredients in the order given with an electric mixer (to elaborate on my grandmother’s instructions: cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs and beat briefly, then add the rest and beat briefly again). Pour into an unbaked pie shell (9″) that has been refrigerated until very cold.  Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, then lower the heat to 325 degrees and bake an additional 45 minutes.
