Classic Pumpkin Pie recipe

Pumpkin puree and shaved nutmeg make this recipe stand out. I always use ready-made pie shells because it makes life easier. When the pie recipe is super easy and you don’t even need a mixer, why complicate matters?

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Pumpkin puree, canned is fine
  • 2 pie shells Unbaked
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 whole Nutmeg, shaved
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 (14 oz.) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 2 large Eggs

Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 425º .

Step 2

In a bowl, mix all the pie filling ingredients by hand until well blended. I like to use a wooden spoon for mixing.

Step 3

Place your pie shells in your pie dish and pinch the edges.

Step 4

Pour the pie filling into the pie shells. You should have enough to make two pies if you don’t want them too thick. We prefer thin pies.

Step 5

Place the pie in the oven and set timer for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, turn the oven temperature down to 350º and continue to cook about 35 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Baking Tip:

Place the pies onto a large baking sheet before putting them into the oven.

Finished

Cool before cutting. Garnish with whipped cream if desired. Refrigerate leftovers if there are any leftovers.
