Fall Cheat Treats - Home Made Pumpkin pie!

The perfect fall Sunday for me involves a warming Roast Dinner, a casual walk though the cold crisp air and my boots crunching through the beautiful autumn leaves before returning back home to the sweet sweet cinnamony smell of Home made PUMPKIN PIE! Hmmmmmnnn.... Ok Lets do this!
3/4's cup of granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 can of Libby's pure pumpkin
1 small can of Nestle carnation evaporated milk
1 unbaked 9 inch deep dish pie shell - I made my own in this picture but it was such a nightmare I got it wrong like 4 times first, I want to keep this easy for you. Easy, relaxing & delishamous.
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Half tsp. salt
Half tsp. ground ginger
Quarter tsp. ground cloves
 *Optional but damn good - double cream to serve!
How we do - in 4 simple steps:
Step 1 - In a small bowl, mix together your cinnamon, sugar, salt, ginger and cloves. In a separate large bowl beat your eggs before pouring in your sugar spice mix and canned pumpkin
Step 2 - Pour your mixture into your pie base
Step 3 - Bake at 220 celcius for 15 minutes before reducing the temperature to 180 celcius and baking for a further 40 to 50 minutes at which point you should be able to put a skewer through the middle and have it come out clean!
Step 4 - cool on a wire rack for 1-2 hours, just so it doesn't fall apart when you cut it. I often like to sit admiring it and drooling Homer Simpson style as I wait... then slice, serve and face dive!

Your Welcome!!
