  • Preparation Time: 30
  • Pie:
  • 1 Somebody's Mother's Mother's Pie Crust
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin puree
  • White Chocolate Whipped Cream:
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup Somebody's Mother's White Chocolate Sauce
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Add cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and salt and whisk well to blend evenly. Whisk in cream, brown sugar and granulated sugar.
  3. Strain the mixture through a strainer into a medium saucepan, pressing on the strainer with a spatula to push through any lumps of brown sugar.
  4. Add the pumpkin puree and whisk until the custard mixture is thoroughly blended.
  5. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly and scraping all over the bottom of the pan to prevent the eggs from scrambling (about 7 minutes), until the mixture feels slightly thickened. Remove from heat.
  6. Scrape the hot custard into the pie shell and bake for 30-40 minutes, until the custard is set (looks firm). Transfer the pie to a rack to cool completely (about 2 hours).
  7. Meanwhile, place 1 cup whipping cream into an electric mixer. Mix until whipped. Fold the whipped cream into 1/2 cup of white chocolate sauce. Refrigerate.
  8. Once the pie is cool, top the pie generously with the white chocolate whipped cream.
