Michelle D. writes in, "What is wrong with the pumpkin pie recipe on the can of Kuner's pumpkin? It is traditional and SO very delish!"
Indeed, what's wrong with being traditional? While I don't have the Kuner's recipe, I do have LIBBY'S (That's what I've been buying since they're on sale and I have coupons for $1 off if I buy three cans. Can't resist a bargain.)
So ladies and gentlemen, our third contender for the "What kind of pumpkin pies am I going make this year?" contest, LIBBY's® Famous Pumpkin Pie. (You can find this recipe at VeryBestBaking.com.)

This is the traditional holiday pumpkin pie. This classic recipe has been on LIBBY'S® Pumpkin labels since 1950. This pie is easy to prepare and even easier to enjoy. Just mix, pour, bake for a delicious homemade tradition.
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 2 large eggs
- 1 can (15 oz.) LIBBY'S 100% Pure Pumpkin
- 1 can (12 fl. oz.) CARNATION Evaporated Milk
- 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
- Whipped cream (optional)
MIX sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.
POUR into pie shell.
BAKE in preheated 425° F. for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° F.; bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Top with whipped cream before serving.
1 3/4 teaspoons pumpkin spice may be substituted for the cinnamon, ginger and cloves; however, the taste will be slightly different. Do not freeze, as this will cause the crust to separate from the filling.
FOR 2 SHALLOW PIES: substitute two 9-inch (2-cup volume) pie shells. Bake in preheated 425° F. oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° F.; bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until pies test done.
FOR HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING (3,500 to 6,000 ft.): Deep-dish pie - extend second bake time to 55 to 60 minutes. Shallow pies - no change.
