Pumpkin Pie

Another of my grandmother's recipes, this time written out in the blank pages of a cookbook:

Pumpkin Pie
9" pastry shell with high fluted edge.
2 slightly beaten eggs with 1 pound can of Del Monte pumpkin
Combine: 1/4 cup light brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves.

Blend into pumpkin mixture. Stir in 1 can (1 2/3 cup) of evaporated milk.
Bake 450 for 15 min
reduce oven to 350 and bake 25 to 35 min more, or until knife comes out clean 2 inches from edge

For pecan ring: take pie from oven 10 min before done. Spoon a mixture of 1.2 cup chopped pecans, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon butter. Add 1 1/2 tsp grated orange rind around edge of pie. Bake 10 min more.
