Equipment

Ingredients

Pumpkin pie filling

pPie dough

  • 1 prebaked pie shell See notes

Instructions

Prepare the crust

  • First start by making your pie crust. Press your pie crust in a 9 inch pie pan, making sure the pie dough is very cold cover it with parchment paper and place your pie weights or dry beans on top then bake in a 425F preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove the pie weights and the parchment paper and bake for another 10 minutes or until the crust is lightly golden. Let your pie crust cool down.

Prepare the filling

  • Preheat the oven to 375F then in a large bowl add all the ingredients of the pumpkin pie filling and whisk until smooth. Fill the pre baked pie shell with the pumpkin pie mixture and place in the oven to bake for 45-55 minutes or until the center is almost set ( it will be a little jiggly in the center but will continue baking as it cools)
    If the edges start to brown too quickly, cover them with aluminum foil or your pie crust shield.
  • Remove from the oven and let the pie cool down completely at room temperature before either serving or covering it tightly with foil and placing it in the fridge overnight.

Notes

This pumpkin pie recipe can be made ahead of time to free up some fridge space for Thanksgiving day so feel free to make it a day or two in advance. 
 
To get the perfect slices of pie, let your pie chill in the fridge overnight. Once you'r ready to slice into it, wipe your knife with a wet towel, slice then wipe again before you cut into the pie again.
