Mom’s Pumpkin Pie

This is my moms pumpkin pie recipe. It is from the Libby pumpkin can. On Rare occasions I find a recipe from a box or can that is actually quite delicious. I have had many comments on how good it is and if they can have the recipe. I am a failure at pastry dough and therefore I buy my own.  But one day I plan on diving in and conquering pie dough.

1 1/2 c sugar
1 can (29oz) pumpkin
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cans (12oz) evaporated milk
1 tsp ginger
2 unbaked 9-inch deep dish pie shells
1/2 tsp cloves
4 large eggs

Mix sugar, cinnamon, ginger and cloves in a small bowl. Beat eggs in a large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Pour into pie shells. Bake in a preheated 425°oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temp to 350°. Bake 40-50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on rack.
