    I had a recipe I liked, and decided to change a bit for things I had on hand, jazz it up a bit. Daughter says its to DIE for!

    Silkie Pumpkin Pie
    1 Can pumpkin puree
    1/4 cup room temp cream cheese
    2 Tbsp melted & cooled butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 (14) oz can evaporated milk
    4 Chicken Eggs (or 2 Duck Eggs)
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp cloves
    1/2 tsp ginger
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    pinch of salt

    Deep Dish Crust


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine and mix sugar, creamcheese, butter & eggs. Add in pumpkin one spoonful at a time until combined.Continue mixing while adding spices.

    2. Place crust in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool before adding the pumpkin mixture.

    3. Cook for 50-60 minutes. Check 10 minutes early to make sure the filling doesn't start cracking.

    Allow to cool a full 3-4 hours before serving.
