            Karen adler
       2    Eggs
      16 oz Pumpkin*
     3/4 c  Brown sugar
       1 ds Nutmeg
     1/2 ts Salt
       1 ts Cinnamon
     1/2 ts Ginger
     1/4 ts Cloves; ground
   1 2/3 c  Heavy cream
       2 tb Whiskey (like jack daniels)
       1    Pie shell; 9-inch
   *I make this pie from prepared fresh pumpkin. To do this, take a pumpkin,
   wipe it down, remove top and seeds, and cut it in half. Place the halves
   cut side down in a shallow pan and bake for about an hour at 350-degrees or
   until soft. Remove, let cool, take off rind, and cut into 2 inch pieces.
   The night before pie is made, place pumpkin pieces in strainer with
   cheesecloth and let moisture drip out overnight. You could hurry the
   process by pressing water out with a spoon. Weight pumpkin again to make
   sure you have 16 oz. You can freeze extra pumpkin for later use.Mix all
   ingredients (except pie shell, of course) together. Bake at 425 degrees for
   15 minutes. Reduce to 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Pie is done when knife
   inserted in center comes out clean. NOTE: if you have any pumpkin filling
   left over, pour in custard cups and bake for about 1/2 hour. Absolutely
   delicious. This is not a pie for the calorie-conscious, but it is one of my
   best and treasured recipes!  Enjoy.
