New England Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Here in Maine we make pumpkin pie differently. We add good ole fashioned molasses to it and it gives it a truly unique taste. I’ll be baking pies today in preparation for Thanksgiving and you can bet that New England Pumpkin Pie is on my list to make. Enjoy!


1 can Pumpkin

1 tbsp. Cornstarch

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1/2 tsp. Ginger

1/2 tsp. Nutmeg

1/2 tsp. Salt (Scant)

1/2 tbsp. Butter (Melted)

1 1/2 cups Milk or 1-12 oz. can Evaporated Milk

1 cup Sugar

1/8 cupMolasses 

2 Eggs (beaten)


Sift Sugar, Cornstarch, Salt, Cinnamon, Ginger, & Nutmeg together. Mix this with contents of one can of Pumpkin. Add Eggs, beaten, Melted Butter, Molasses, & Milk. Add a dash of Lemon Juice (if desired). Line a 9-inch pie plate with your pie crust, pour in contents. Preheat oven & bake at 450 for 15 minutes.
