Ingredients
  

  • pre-baked and cooled 9" pie crust
  • 1 1/2 pound carrots
  • 2 tablespoon butter softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • 1 tablespoon flour

Instructions
 

  • Peel and chop carrots.
  • Place carrots in large pot, cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until carrots are tender, about 25 - 30 minutes.
  • Drain water. Return carrots to pot. Cook carrots over low heat, stirring constantly, for a few minutes, to steam off all excess water.
  • Puree carrots and butter until absolutely smooth. You can do this in a food processor, blender, food mill or with a ricer.
  • I use my food processor. After the carrots are smooth, mix in sugars, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, ginger, vanilla, half & half and flour until well combined.
  • Pour mixture into prebaked & cooled 9" pie crust.
  • Bake at 350° for 50 - 60 minutes or pie is set and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire rack. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving. Serve with whipped cream and enjoy :)
