Hey, how you are you all doing? This is Dave, Cooking with Dave. Today, we're going to coke some of pumpkin pie. Got to messing around with pumpkin making a Jac-O-Lantern. I feel if you want a -- we should have some pumpkin pie, it being so close to Halloween. Let me show you how to put it together.
The first thing we're going to do is take ourselves some sugar. I got about a cup of sugar, recipe calls for three to four scoops, I'm saying we're going to put a cup. You know what I am saying? Then in here I have some ginger, and some crushed up cloves, ground cloves, about a quarter teaspoon of ground cloves, half teaspoon of ginger. Then, we're going to use a whole teaspoon of cinnamon and we're going to use a half teaspoon of salt, to bring up those flavors, and then with some extra, we're going to use a little bit of nutmeg, not a whole lot. Recipe don't call for no nutmeg, but we're going to throw up some in there, anyways.
Alright, we'll mix all that up. Get all our spices nice and mixed up in the sugar. I'm going to mix well. The cloves and everything, ginger. Okay, and we'll sit this the other side. I am going to take two eggs, I'll go and beat two eggs, till nice and whipped up, like that. Then, we're going to add our pumpkin and read that, that's a 100% pumpkin. I'll put that right in there in these eggs, who will not like the pumpkin, and why not? Pumpkin is good, especially when you add yourself a cup of sugar to it. You know what I am saying?
So I mixed that up a little bit with the egg, take all your sugar and spices and everything, dump them in there. Get them mixed up with the egg, and whisk. Get that all mixed up with your spices. Nice and mixed up there. Looking yummy. Then we're going to take some evaporated milk, this is a regular can of evaporated milk. We're going to start slowly pouring that in there, and stirring it up in there, and stir around. Make this nice a pop filling, stirred up, slowly add your milk, and get all stirred in there.
This is going to be our pop filling. We're going to put this in a pot dish, and then we're going to put it in the oven, and we're going to start up the oven. We're going to pre-heat it to 425 degrees, and then when we put this in the oven, we're going to turn that down to 350, as soon as we slide it in the oven. We're going to start it out 425, preheat 425, make sure your oven is 425 for at least 15 minutes, and then turn it down to 350 before you put your pie, or as you put your pie. Alright, we're all mixed up.
Now all I have to do is take our readymade pie crust can go on. And we're just going to pour it right in there. And then we cook that - it won't fall over, no spill over, because I have put all of it, remember that. I don't want to wait no longer. Alright, now we'll put this in the oven to 350, and we'll cook it 40 to 50 minutes, depending, we want to cook it until we can put a knife into it. Pull the knife out of it, and it comes out smooth, and we know it's done, and it's good. Oh, it's going to be good.
Okay, there is our pumpkin pie. It took us about an hour and 15 minutes. Pull it out the oven before going to it, fork come out clean, before it is ready to go. Pumpkin pie. Let's see, might be too quick. People impatient around here, they don't want this to cool off, and want to just eat it as soon as possible. Okay, so be patient, see if this comes right out of here. Probably it will come up very clean. We should let it cool a little longer, and here it goes, here is our pumpkin pie. That looks pretty good.
Alright, and there we have our pumpkin pie. Don't just make yourself pumpkin pie for Halloween. Make it for Thanksgiving too man. Pumpkin pie, is a real good stuff. Alright, you'll have a great day. Thanks!
