Ingredients
  • Chilled pie dough for one single-crust 8 or 9-inch pie see our pie crust recipe, or store brought
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 cups fresh pumpkin puree see our recipe, or 1 can of pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Instructions
CRUST
  1. Prepare crust according to our recipe. If you use a store-bought crust, follow the instructions on the package for blind baking.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  3. 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.
  4. Refrigerate while you make the pie filling.
PIE FILLING
  1. Whisk eggs and both sugars together until smooth.
  2. Add pumpkin puree, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and the salt.
  3. Stir until well blended.
  4. BAKE THE PIE
  5. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  6. Transfer pie shell to a baking sheet.
  7. Pour pumpkin filling into the pie shell.
  8. Bake 45 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick plunged into the centre of the pie, comes out clean.
  9. Rotate once or twice during baking.
  10. If the top of the crust becomes too dark, cover with a thin strip of aluminum foil.
  11. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes and serve warm or cool for 2 hours until room temperature.
  12. Cut into 6 wedges and add homemade whipped cream or ice cream.
  13. Makes 1 (9-inch) pie
