  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt, heavy cream, milk, beaten eggs and brandy. Stir, don't whip, the mixture or the baked pie will crack.
  3. Pour the pumpkin mixture into a prepared pie shell. Brush the edge of the crust with an egg wash.
  4. Bake in the center of a preheated, 375 degree F oven for 1 hour, or until the pumpkin filling is set but the center shakes slightly.
  5. Serve with Ginger Whipped Cream.
  6. For Ginger Whipped Cream: Pour the heavy cream into a very cold, preferably stainless steel, mixing bowl. Whisk the cream to a soft-peak stage.
  7. Add the powdered sugar and ginger, and continue to whisk until stiff peaks form. If using a mixer, don't over-mix or you'll end up with very sweet, ginger-flavored butter.
