Libby's(R) Famous Pumpkin Pie
Every Thanksgiving I make 12 or more pumpkin pies so after dinner every family group should be able to take a pie home w/them :>) This is the only basic pumpkin pie recipe i've ever used. I do change it a lil though I take out the ginger and cloves and add 1t vanilla. I split the sugar 1/2 cup white sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar (dont fill the cups alll the way to the top though) in the yrs i grow new england pie pumpkin, jarradale squash, acorn, butternut, cinderella squash or other good pie pumpkin or squash I use 1/2 Libbys canned pumpkin and 1/2 any of the mix above (after baking it dwn to smooth consistancy then put in blender 1/2 libbys 1/2 squash mix let cool) add rest of pie ingredients and pour in crust :>)
