Pumpkin Pie (A Richards Family Favorite)

This is the Richard's favorite pumpkin pie recipe and it is mostly based on Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie Recipe. This is for you Nicole...

4 eggs beaten
1 29 oz. can of pumpkin (straight pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 12 oz. cans of evaporated milk
2 9 in. deep dish,homemade,unbaked pie shells with high fluted edge

Preheat oven to 425*F. Combine ingredients in order given, pour into pie shells. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350*F. Bake an additional 45 minutes on until knife insterted in center comes out clean. (To keep you pie crusts from burning, use a tin foil halo. Note, if you aren't using homemade, deep dish pie crusts but using regular frozen 9" pie crusts, this recipe will make 4 pies.
