Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie
1 (16 oz.) can pumpkin
1/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. grated orange peel
3/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. pepper
3 tbsp. butter or margarine
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
About 1 hour before serving:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In large bowl with mixer at low speed, beat eggs with pumpkin, sugar, grated
orange peel, salt, ground nutmeg, pepper, 1 tablespoon butter or margarine,
softened and 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice until pumpkin mixture is well blended
and smooth, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula.
Increase speed to medium and beat 1 minute longer.
Spoon pumpkin mixture into 1 quart buttered (1 tablespoon) casserole. Bake
casserole uncovered for 45 minutes or until heated through (edges will be
slightly set but center will be soft and creamy).
To serve, lightly sprinkle pumpkin custard with 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice and
top with 1 tablespoon butter or margarine.
