Grandma Margie's Squash Pie

This pie recipe has been a holiday favorite for many years. This was copied from a copy of the recipe that Margie had given Shirley. It was written on the back of a blue 3x5 card advertising an antique show in Millerton, July, 1961. So we know two things: Margie recycled the card and we couldn't have been given the recipe much before July, 1961. My guess is that we got it around Christmas, 1961.

1/2 cup of sugar
1 heaping tablespoon of flour
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
1 teaspoon of salt

1 can of "One Pie" Squash Pie Filling
1 egg slightly beaten
1 can of evaporated milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Mix the dry ingredients together then add the other ingredients. Mix thoroughly and pour into an unbaked 9-inch pie shell. Sprinkle grated nutmeg on top. Bake at 375 degrees for a half hour and 350 degrees for an additional 45 minutes.
