Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie
This is Patrick's favorite. He likes it when I double or triple the spices... But I'll give you the recipe the way my mom does it:

1 can pumpkin (15 oz)
3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs (well beaten)
1 2/3 cups evaporated milk
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch salt
1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell

Mix the pumpkin, eggs, sugar, evaporated milk and spices together, blending well. Put into the pie shell. Bake on the middle rack at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 45 more minutes or until mostly solidified.
