Nothing says the holidays like a big slice of Trumpkin pie, complete with a pound of whip cream. This year, dazzle your family and friends with a tasty political pie that’s sure to be a crowd and taste bud pleaser.
Let’s gather the ingredients:
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND(R) Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
- Whip cream – enough for pie topping and possible food fight
1 bag Keebler Sandie’s Pecan Cookies
½ stick of butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Use a cookie dough roller to crush pecan cookies into a fine mixture. Mix ½-stick of melted butter with pecan crumble. Press the mixture into a lightly greased pie pan and press up the sides with fingertips.
Whisk pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, spices and salt in medium bowl until smooth. Pour into crust. Bake 15 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue baking 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted 1 inch from crust comes out clean. Cool. Serve with a dollop or more of whip cream if desired.
