Ingredients
Pastry:
Filling:
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups (15 ounce can) pumpkin
  • 1½ cups (12 ounce can) evaporated milk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Walnut Topping:
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
Instructions
Pastry:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare Classic Pie Pastry for one 9 inch single-crust pie. Line a 9 inch pie pan with the pastry.
Filling:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with a wire whisk or fork until frothy. Add pumpkin, evaporated milk, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and salt, beat well to mix. Pour mixture in the pastry-lined pie pan.
  2. Bake: Partially bake for 40 minutes.
Walnut Topping:
  1. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, walnuts, and brown sugar; stir to mix. Gently spoon walnut topping around the outside edge of the partially baked filling. Tip: Cover the edge of the crust with a 2 inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent the crust from over-browning.
  2. Bake: Return to oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes longer until the topping is lightly browned and a kitchen knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove from oven. Cool on a wire cooling rack before cutting and serving. Cover and refrigerate within 2 hours.
Serving suggestion: Serve pie either when cooled to room temperature or still slightly warm. Serve plain or spoon a dollop of whipped cream on top.
