Pumpkin Pie


  • 1 pumpkin
  • 2 cupfuls of milk
  • 1 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1 teaspoonful of butter
  • 1 teaspoonful of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoonful of ginger
  • 1 tablespoonful of molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • sugar


Cut a pumpkin into small pieces; remove the soft part and seeds. Cover and cook it slowly in its own steam until tender; then remove the cover and reduce it almost to dryness, using care that it does not burn. Press it through a colander. To two and one half cupfuls of pulp add the milk, salt, butter, cinnamon, ginger, molasses, eggs, and sugar to taste. Add the beaten eggs last and after the mixture is cold. Pour it into an open crust and bake slowly forty to fifty minutes. Squash pies are made in the same way, but are not the same in flavor, although they are often given the name of pumpkin pies.
