The pie pictured was baked in a frozen gluten-free pie shell. Use a frozen pie shell, refrigerated pie pastry, or homemade pastry.
If you take a little extra time to partially bake the pie shell, you'll have a firmer and drier bottom crust.
1 1/2 cups cooked pumpkin or squash puree, or 1 (15-ounce) can
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons molasses
3 large eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup evaporated milk, or half-and-half
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell
Preheat the oven to 425 F/220 C/Gas 7.
Prepare the pastry for your pie and fit it into the pie plate. Keep the pastry chilled in the refrigerator if you won't be filling it immediately.
Combine the canned pumpkin, brown sugar, salt, spices, and molasses; beat to blend. Blend in the beaten eggs and the milk until the mixture is smooth and well blended.
Pour mixture into the prepared pie shell. Bake for in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 F/180 C/Gas 4 and bake for 35 to 45 minutes longer, or until the center of the pie is set. A knife inserted in the center of the custard should come out clean.
Top each serving of the pie with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon-sugar.
