Pumpkin Pie Directions
Heat oven to 425 degrees.
In a medium sized bowl, add sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves and combine with a spatula. Put aside for now.
In a large bowl, beat 2 Eggs. Add pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture and combine with spatula. Gradually add evaporated milk stirring with spatula just until combined.
Let pie crust come to room temperature for 15 minutes and place into glass or ceramic pie dish and press sides and bottom firmly.
Crimp crust or decorate as you wish. I did the crimp method for one pie and used leaf crust cutouts on the other pie.
Carefully pour pumpkin pie mixture into pie shell.

Bake pumpkin pie at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
Place pumpkin cutouts in oven for 7 to 9 minutes until crust is golden brown. Remove and place on cooling rack for 1/2 hour.
After the first 15 minutes of baking, reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees, place pie shield (Mrs. Anderson's Pie Crust Shield) or cut strips of aluminum foil over crust and bake for another 40 to 55 minutes until cake tester or toothpick comes out clean. My pumpkin pie took 45 minutes to bake.

After first 20 minutes of cooling, place decorative pumpkin cutouts gently on top of pie.
If not serving right away, cover with foil and refrigerate until you are ready to serve it.
Enjoy with a dollop of whip cream or with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
