Rich and Creamy Pumpkin Pie

This is a pretty standard pumpkin pie recipe that screams Thanksgiving tradition.

1 – 9” pie shell, unbaked
2 cups of pumpkin puree
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon nutmeg
Pecan halves for garnish

Preheat oven to 425°
Slowly beat the pumpkin, sweetened milk, eggs and spices together. Pour the mixture into the pie shell.
Bake for 15 minutes at 425°, reduce heat to 350° and continue to bake for 35 – 40 minutes or until a knife inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean.
Garnish with pecans.

Substitution for Sweetened Condensed Milk:
One cup plus 2 tablespoons of nonfat dry milk, ½ cup WARM water, ¾ cup sugar. Mix well until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.

Pie Crust:
1 ½ cups flour
½ cup shortening
1 teaspoon salt
¼ cup ice water

Cut shortening into salted flour until finely mixed to a tiny pebbly stage with a pastry cutter or 2 knives. With a table fork, mix in the water until all is absorbed. Press dough together and cut in half. Roll dough on a well floured board or pastry cloth. Place in pie tin and trim excess.
If a recipe calls for pre-baked crust, perforate the bottom and sides of the crust in multiple places with a fork, chill it for 20 minutes then bake it for 10 minutes at 425°.

Lost Trail Pass can be a pretty treacherous little stretch of road, worse in the winter. Because there is no cell phone service on the south side, there remains a ‘call box’ – an old telephone receiver to direct dial 911 in case of an emergency. When the call box is used, an alarm goes off to emergency personnel but they don’t respond until they are toned out by dispatch. Don and Emma are First Responders that live at the bottom of the pass. This particular winter night the pass had accumulated 3-4 inches of new snow. …3 am the call box alarm goes off …a faint “Help Me”
