Pumpkin Pie

On Friday, Gerry and I enjoyed a day of relaxation, after working out first thing in the morning of course. The fact that we work out every day is what allows us to eat all the wonderful food we consume. It's all a matter of checks and balances.

We did some errands, some housekeeping details and simply had leftovers for dinner. We put a little of everything on our plates and reheated everything in the microwave with the exception of the pumpkin pie.

This recipe has been a family favorite since we lived in Pennsylvania which means I have been making this particular recipe for at least 18 years.

Pumpkin Pie

3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups milk, scalded
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Combine eggs, sugar, salt and spices. Gradually stir in milk and cream. Add pumpkin. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. Lower heat to 350 degrees and bake for another 30-35 minutes until a knife inserted near center comes out clean.
