Easy Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients

1 baked pie crust

1 envelope Knox unflavored gelatin

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. salt

1 can (14-oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)

2 eggs, well beaten

1 can (16-oz.) pumpkin

Directions

In a saucepan, combine the gelatin, spices (can substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg), and salt. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk and eggs, mixing well. Let stand 1 minute. Cook and stir constantly over low heat until the gelatin dissolves and the mixture thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the pumpkin until well mixed. Pour into crust. Chill until set, about 3 hours.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
