Full Answer

Begin making Libby's famous pumpkin pie by combining 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger and 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves in a small bowl. In a large bowl, beat 2 eggs, then stir in a 15-ounce can of pumpkin and the sugar and spice mixture. Gradually add a 12-ounce can of evaporated milk, and stir to combine.

Pour the pumpkin mixture into an unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie shell. Bake in a 425 F oven for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 F, and bake for an additional 40 to 50 minutes. The pie is done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the pie to cool for 2 hours, then serve or refrigerate. If desired, top the pie with whipped cream before serving.

To make an easy no-roll pie crust, combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar and 3/8 teaspoon of baking powder. In a separate bowl, combine 7 tablespoons of oil and 1/4 cup of cold water, and pour over the dry ingredients. Stir the dough with a fork until it is evenly moistened, then press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate.
