Pie!

Pie!

We talked about Chess Pie a few days ago, and I promised I’d come back and share my grandmother’s Pumpkin Pie recipe.  You can tell how good a recipe is by how messy the recipe card is!  Am I right?!?

Grannie McCollum’s Pumpkin or Sweet Potato Pie

2 cups mashed pumpkin (1 15-ounce can) or sweet potato
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla (or lemon flavoring)
4 tablespoons plain flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Mix all ingredients together and pour into a regular size pie crust.  (Not deep dish.)  Bake for about 45 minutes or until the middle of the pie is set.  (Firm to the touch; not sticky.)  Might take up to an hour.

Sometimes I add cinnamon, but the original recipe does not call for it.  You could get all crazy and add pumpkin pie spice, but this pie is delicious in its simplicity.  Trust me.

Enjoy!
