If you are at all on the fence about pumpkin pie, I highly recommend giving this recipe for Extra Fluffy Pumpkin Pie a shot. The pumpkin flavor is very mellow, so I would suggest taking a little taste and deciding if you want to add more spices to it before baking.
Extra Fluffy Pumpkin Pie
Makes 16 servings
1 1/2 pints vanilla ice cream, softened (3 cups)
1 3/4 cups pumpkin puree
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 (9 inch) unbaked pie shells
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.) Place ice cream near the warm oven to soften.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs. Stir in the pumpkin puree, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Mix in soft ice cream until smooth. Pour filling into two 9 inch pie shells.
3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake an additional 30 to 40 minutes, or until filling is set.
