1 Pie or Sugar Pumpkin, about 3 pounds – yield 2 cups of pumpkin purée
Refrigerated pie crust
1 1/2 cup heavy cream or one 12 oz. can of evaporated milk
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs plus the yolk of a third egg
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon of grated lemon zest
Remove the stem from the pumpkin and scrape out the insides, discarding the seeds. Cut the pumpkin in half and lay the pieces cut-side down on a rimmed baking sheet lined with Bake-O-Glide. Place sheet in the center rack of the Roasting Oven. Roast until fork-tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove and let cool.
While the pumpkin is cooling, line an AGA ceramic dish with pastry dough. Place in the refrigerator to rest.
Once pumpkin has cooled, remove skin and press pumpkin through a food mill or chinois for an extra smooth consistency. Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Mix in the sugars, salt, spices, and lemon zest. Mix in the pumpkin purée. Stir in the cream. Beat together until everything is well mixed.
Pour the filling in to the rested pastry dish. Cook the pie on the floor of the Roasting Oven using the Cold Plain Shelf above on the second runner down. Bake for about 40 minutes until set. Serve with a dollop of cool whip. Pumpkin Pie on the AGA has never been so easy.
