The BEST homemade pumpkin pie (recipe)

Here's how to turn this:

into this*:
*Please note, I did not cook my child.

1. Get a pie pumpkin and cook it. You can do this by cutting it in half, removing the seeds, covering it in plastic wrap, and cooking it in the microwave for 15-25 minutes depending on how well your microwave works. When the 'meat' of the pumpkin is soft, spoon it out and puree' it in a blender.

2. Then use this recipe to make a delicious pie!

1 cup sugar
1.5 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
3 cups pumpkin glop
1.5 cans (12oz each) of evaporated milk

Note: if you do not have cinnamon, cloves, allspice and ginger, you can substitute 3 teaspoons of "pumpkin pie spice". It's not exactly the same, but it will do.

Don't be surprised if the mixture is very runny! It may start as a soupy liquid, but it will firm up nicely in the oven!
Bake at 425 F for the first 15 minutes, then turn the temperature down to 350 F and bake another 45 to 60 minutes, until a clean knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

This is hands down THE best pumpkin pie I have ever had. It's really good with homemade whip cream too!

I got this recipe from this site. It has some other recipes that I really want to try like homemade pumpkin cheese cake (I'm already dreaming).

Does anyone have a good homemade pumpkin pie ice-cream recipe? That is my favorite and I'd love to make it!
