When I was a little girl, Pumpkin Pie wasn’t a favorite of mine, maybe it’s because I expected a little more flavor in a pie.  Some pumpkin pies just don’t have that “gotcha” taste.   You know that bite that makes you close your eyes in sheer delight.   I never really figured it out.  I mean my mother always used cinnamon and cloves in her old fashioned pumpkin pie recipe but something was just lacking for me.

It took me until I married my hubby, a lover of old fashioned pumpkin pie.   And he is a lover of ginger in just about everything savory to get me on the pumpkin pie bandwagon.   I also discovered eagle brand milk and whole nutmeg.  The whole nutmeg holds its flavor until it’s grated.   Bam-o, that was the three missing ingredients in my pumpkin pies!    And this Eagle Brand pumpkin pie with freshly grated nutmeg made me became a lover of pumpkin pie!

Freshly grated nutmeg

 

Whole nutmeg can be found in just about any grocery store right in the spice section and it does make a world of difference in any dish.  I have two different graters that I use, a mini grater and a nutmeg grater.   And I can grate a teaspoon of nutmeg quickly and easily.  This is where a small effort reaps big rewards, freshly grated nutmeg is amazing.   And it’s a must in this Eagle Brand Pumpkin Pie with nutmeg.

 

Another great way to bring your pie to the next level is to use fresh pumpkin.  We always take our jack-o-lanterns, cook them and freeze the meat for all our fall baking.   That way we have loads of fresh pumpkin handy for pies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cheesecake, and the list goes on.

 And you don’t waste those fun jack-o-lanterns you carved at Halloween.  But as cheap as pumpkins are after Halloween, it might be a great idea to grab a couple of extras.   And it’s not that hard to cook a pumpkin, I have all the steps right here>>>>How to Cook a Pumpkin
