If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Maggie's pumpkin pie (untested)

This recipe appears to be written in Grammy's handwriting (her handwriting looked different when she wrote in fountain pen). It is undated, but I suspect this recipe pre-dates 1941 (the year she got married).

  • 1 1/2 cup steamed pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 5/8 cup canned milk diluted with 3/8 cup water [probably unsweetened evaporated milk]

  1. Beat egg thoroughly
  2. Add sugar mixed with flour, salt and spices
  3. Add pumpkin, molasses and milk
  4. Stir until well-blended
  5. Line a deep pie pan with pastry [get the recipe for Never-Fail Pie Crust by clicking here]
  6. Pour in pumpkin mixture
  7. Bake in moderate oven (350°F–375°F) [no baking time is given but my own experience has been that a pumpkin pie is done when you can stick a butter knife into the filling and have it come out clean]

Pin It!
