White House Pumpkin Pie (1887)

"For three pies:
  • One quart of milk
  • Three cupfuls of boiled and strained pumpkin
  • One-half cupful of molasses
  • One and one-half cupfuls of sugar
  • Yolks and whites of four eggs, beaten separately
  • One tablespoonful each of cinnamon and ginger
  • A little salt
"Beat all together, and bake with an under-crust. Boston marrow or Hubbard squash maybe be substituted for pumpkin, and are preferred by many, as possessing a less strong flavor."
