Combine the cooked carrots, milk, sugar, eggs, salt, giner and cinnamon in a large bowl. Beat with an electric or hand beater for 2 minutes. Pour the mixture into the unbaked piecrust.
Place the pie on the center oven rack. Bake the pie for 15 minutes, then lower the oven heat to 350 F and bake for 45 minutes longer or until the filling is set.
Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool. Store top covered with plastic in the refrigerator.

I would consider adding a tablespoon of orange peel zest to the mixture before baking. I would also consider adding chopped pecans sprinkled on top of the filling before it is baked.
Yummm. Thanks for the recipe!
