Super Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe

When I think of Fall, I always imagine that perfect slice of homemade pumpkin pie waiting to be eaten, with a dollop of whipped cream to top it off… My mouth is already watering just thinking about it! There’s just something about the season and pumpkin desserts that go hand-in-hand, and I couldn’t imagine not whipping up a pie each year to gather the family around the table at Thanksgiving and on Halloween.

This year, if you’re looking to invest the time to prepare a good old Homemade Pumpkin Pie, look no further: this recipe is bound to be an instant hit! It was with my family! You’ll never want to eat another store-bought pumpkin pie again after having a slice of this!

This is a classic, unfussy pumpkin pie. We take it plain or, when feeling feisty, with a dollop of softly whipped cream. The spices are not overpowering, here. If you like your pie spicy, increase the cinnamon and ginger a little. (We’d stay away from increasing the cloves, a 1/4-teaspoon should suffice).

DIRECTIONS

CRUST

  • Prepare crust according to our recipe. If you use a store-bought crust, follow the instructions on the package for blind baking.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.  
  • Remove the pie crust from the refrigerator and place on a baking sheet (this makes it easy to move in and out of the oven). Bake for 15 minutes. Take the crust out of the oven. Don’t worry if the bottom puffs up; just press it down gently with a flat spatula, taking care not to puncture it.
  • Refrigerate while you make the pie filling.
