The Best Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This recipe has been made by thousands in my Pumpkin Magic Cake recipe, so I thought I would re-share the recipe in it’s original pie form.
I’ve been making this pumpkin pie recipe for several years now, and it is ALWAYS a hit!

Every holiday table should have at least one pumpkin pie on it, and I’m letting you know right now, this one will not disappoint.

The recipe couldn’t be any easier either.

Pumpkin Pie Filling Ingredients:

  • Pumpkin Puree – make sure you’re using the puree, not the canned pumpkin pie filling.
  • Heavy Whipping Cream – at least 33% fat content
  • Evaporated Milk – adds a delicious richness to the pie filling
  • Brown Sugar
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice – use the store bought mix or you can use a homemade blend if desired.
  • Salt
  • Eggs

Since I include a little heavy cream with the traditional evaporated milk, it’s a nice and rich pie that’s filled with that delightful pumpkin pie spice.

How To Make Pumpkin Pie

  • Just add all the ingredients to a large bowl and whisk to combine. I like to use an electric mixer and try to run it for a couple minutes to get the mixture nice and fluffy.
  • Pour the filling into an unbaked pie shell and pop in the oven.
  • Start with a higher oven temp, then reduce the temperature to finish baking for the perfect custard-like consistency.

Can I use store bought pie crust for my Pumpkin Pie?

Yes! When you make the pie, you can use either a store-bought pie crust dough, such as Pillsbury, or you can make your own pie crust.

I have two fantastic homemade pie crust recipes. Both will work great for this recipe.

  • All Butter Pie Crust
  • Flakey Pie Crust – my go-to pie crust!

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • Prepare your pie crust by rolling it out and putting it in a 9 inch pie pan.

  • In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients except the eggs. Once blended together add eggs one at a time. Beat for an additional 3-5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Pour into prepared pie crust and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 35-40 minutes. Make sure the center of the pie is set and is no longer jiggly.

  • Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Cover and keep stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve.



You can use either store bought pie dough or make your own from scratch for this simple recipe.

*If you're concerned that the pie crust will get soggy underneath, try pricking the pie dough with a fork several times in the pie pan, then bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F before filling with the pie filling.
