Ingredients

For the pie

  • 3 eggs
  • One 9-inch pie crust
  • 3/4 Cups honey
  • One 15-ounce can canned pumpkin
  • 1 Cup evaporated milk
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ginger

  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

For the honey whipped cream

  • 1 Cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

For the pie

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Brush 1 teaspoon beaten egg on inside of pie crust. Place crust on a cookie sheet and bake for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, add the rest of the ingredients to remaining beaten eggs and whisk to combine. Remove pie crust from oven and carefully pour honey pumpkin mixture into hot crust; bake 5 minutes more at 425 degrees. Reduce heat to 350 degrees, and bake 30 to 40 minutes more, until filling is set. Cool completely and serve with Honey Whipped Cream*.

TIP: For Honey Walnut Pumpkin Pie, just before serving, combine 1/3 cup honey, 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. Carefully spread over pie, cut, and serve.

 

For the honey whipped cream

Beat whipping cream until mixture thickens; gradually add honey and beat until soft peaks form. Fold in vanilla.

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
