Pumpkin Pie

This is taken from Godey's Lady's Book Receipts and Household Hints ©1870

Back in the 19th century Pumpkin Pie was also known as Farmer's Pie
Farmers' Pie — Grate a good sweet pumpkin; add to it sufficient milk to thin it like custard ; add four eggs, one teacupful of sugar, or sufficient to sweeten it to your taste; add a little ground cinnamon and a little cinnamon water; mix all well together ; make a crust like for pies, fill your shells, sprinkle them over thickly with pulverized cinnamon. Bake with a moderate heat.
