You will need:
- ½ of a 15-ounce package of refrigerated pie crust
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 can (12-ounce) of evaporated milk
- ¾ cup water
- ¼ cup light rum
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Powdered sugar, for garnishing
- Whipped cream, for garnishing
- Rolling pin
- 9-inch deep dish pie plate
- Baking sheet with 1/2-inch sides
- Electric mixer
- Medium-sized mixing bowl
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Lightly flour a flat surface and unroll the pie crust on it. Roll the crust into a 12-inch circle, using the rolling pin. Press the crust into the pie plate and crimp the edges, if desired. Once the dough is firmly fitted into the plate, lightly poke holes in the bottom of the dough using the fork.
Step 3: Put the eggs and sugar into the medium-sized bowl. Beat these using an electric mixer set to medium speed, until well combined.
Step 4: Add the water, evaporated milk, salt, and rum. Beat on low speed until combined. Pour this mixture into the crust.
Step 5: Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on top of the pie.
Step 6: Place the pie plate onto the baking sheet. Add hot water to the surrounding area.
Step 7: Bake for approximately 55 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Step 8: Cut into slices, garnish with powdered sugar and whipped cream, and serve.
