Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie


Here is another tasty pie recipe...just in time for the holidays. It adorned my Thanksgiving table, and may make a repeat appearance on my Christmas table. Yes, it was that good! The recipe is courtesy Paula Deen.

Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie
1 cup apple butter
1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
3 eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
Sweetened whipped cream, for garnish

Preheat oven to 425°F.
Combine apple butter, pumpkin, sugar, salt and spices in a bowl. Stir in eggs. Gradually add milk and mix well. Pour into pie shell. Bake for about 40 minutes or until set.

Cook's Notes:
-If the crust begins to burn, place tin foil around the crust and lower the temperature of the oven.
-A tasty topping for this pie is Pecan Pralines.

I love the way this pie uses pumpkin and apples to make a pie full of spices. The apple butter packs a double punch. Not only do you get a hint of apple flavor, but it also adds it's own spices to the flavors. The pie has a slightly different texture than regular pumpkin...an improvement in my book.

    @Rosalind, Happy you stumbled upon my blog! Haven't been on for a few days due to a large ice storm and power outage. I'm on my daughter's computer now. Hopefully I will be up and running soon.

    How great...a personal chef!
