My Auntie Lyn loves food. When I attended BYU for a time, I would go to her home and raid her refrigerator. Mostly for frosting. She always seemed to have a big bin of it in the back the frig. Always homemade.

This pie looks deceiving because of it's title. The proof is in the filling. I added a gingersnap crust instead of a regular pastry shell. It is really yummy! My Sweetheart said as he ate it, "This is really good. It's like the pumpkin pie but with carrots. I think you made this before." Yes. I made it before for the pie party so many other options, he didn't try it.

2 cups cooked, mashed carrots
1 (12 oz) can evaporated whole milk
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1 (10-inch) unbaked pie crust
Preheat oven to 400 F. Combine carrots, milk, sugar, eggs, salt, ginger and cinnamon; beat for 2 minutes.
Pour into unbaked pie crust. Bake 15 minute; lower heat to 350 F and bake 45 minutes longer or until fi lling is set. Serves 8.
Notes: I covered the pie with a piece of alumnim foil after the 15 minutes at 400 degrees so that the crust wouldn't burn. I uncovered the pie for the last 5 minutes to let the pie set up.
