Recipe Monday - Pumpkin Pie

I made my first pumpkin pie over the weekend, and it was a smashing success. The best pumpkin pie I've ever eaten, and I don't even like pumpkin pie.

9 inch pie crust
Pumpkin puree, 1 can(15 oz)
Condensed milk, 1 can (14 oz)
Eggs, 2 nos.
Ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon
Ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon
Ground nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon
Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
Pumpkin Spice, 1/2 teaspoon

To make the crust:

I used 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs mixed with three tablespoons of sugar and 1/3 cup of butter.

I baked it at 350 for 8 minutes.

To make the pie:
  1. Pre heat the oven to 425 F
  2. Whisk together pumpkin puree and condensed milk, add the spices, salt and also beat in the eggs and mix well till they form a smooth mixture. 
  3. Pour this mixture into the pie crust and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Now reduce the oven temperature and continue to bake for another 30-40 minutes or until the fork inserted comes out clean.
  5. Let them cool. Serve it with dollop of whipped cream or as desired.

To make the whipped cream:

I mixed a cup of heavy cream with 1/3 cup of confectioner's sugar and beat until fluffy.
