Yield: 8 Servings
|2 cups||Cooked carrots, mashed|
|½ teaspoon||Ground ginger|
|½ teaspoon||Ground cloves|
|1 tablespoon||Butter, melted|
|Unbaked deep 9" pie shell|
Pumpkins don't grow well in most parts of Alaska, but carrots do! Mix all ingredients together until very well blended. Pour into an unbaked deep dish or 2 smaller pie shells. Bake at 425 F for 40 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted one inch from the edge comes out clean. Center will look soft but filling will set as it cools.
