  1. Place baked pie shell on a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs lightly. Add cream, salt, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, and pumpkin. Mix well, then stir in candied ginger and cognac, rum, or bourbon (see Cook's Note). Carefully pour mixture into baked pastry shell.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue to bake until a knife point inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean. Custard will still jiggle. Serve pie warm or at room temperature. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I pre-bake the pie shell to ensure the bottom crust stays crisp.
  • You may substitute rum or bourbon for the cognac, if you prefer.
  • The pie can be served warm, but I prefer to serve it at room temperature. Since the center often cracks as it cools, you can use that as an excuse to pipe on rosettes of whipped cream.

This is a simple pie to make that has good body and texture. It could use a little more oomph of flavor, possibly by adding a bit more sugar and spice. Added rum as a suggested alternative and...

Made this pie according to the recipe. I wouldn't change a thing. It is delicious &easy to make. Ginger & bourbon gave it just the right amount of zip.
