avocado pie

Avocado Pie

1 large cup avocado pulp
1 cup sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 Tablespoons (heaping) cornstarch

Mix all ingredients. Bake in 9-inch pie dish at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees; bake until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Use a graham cracker crust or make your favorite pie crust.

My notes: This was a good, custardy pie that would benefit from finding a way not to need the cornstarch, which was obviously included for texture, but, I think, made the custard taste a tad bit starchy (duh). The sweetness level was fine for my taste, but my sweet tooth knows no bounds. Decreasing the sugar wouldn't have hurt. More spices wouldn't have hurt, either, depending on the desired effect. This recipe, or something like it, would be good with banana.
