Pumpkin pie! One of the staples for any Thanksgiving dessert table. Amanda shares her family’s favorite pumpkin pie recipe, and we hope it will become one of your family’s favorites too!

Pie Crust

Every good pie starts with a good crust. Let’s start by making a delicious buttery pie crust.

  • ¾ cup cold butter
  • ½ cup of ice water
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • Add your flour and salt to a large mixing bowl
  • Dice the butter and add to flour mixture
  • Take a pastry cutter and cut the butter into the flour until you have coarse crumbles
  • Gradually add in your ice water until you can form a ball of dough
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight

Pumpkin Pie Filling

After you have chilled your pie crust dough a while, you can start to assemble your pumpkin pie filling. For your filling, you will need just a few ingredients.

  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Ginger
  • ½ tsp. Nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 fl. Oz. Evaporated Milk
  • Add in your sugar and spice mixture and mix well
  • Wisk two eggs in a large mixing bowl
  • Next, add in your pumpkin 
  • Once your ingredients are mixed well slowly add in your evaporated milk and give it a good stir

Time to assemble your pie!

  • Flour your work surface and rolling pin
  • Start rolling out that dough
  • Take a small piece of the dough and set it aside for a special pie decoration a bit later
  • Time for your filling!
  • Place your pie in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes and then decrease your oven temperature to 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes
  • Once you have your dough all rolled out, use your pie plate to measure the amount of dough you will need

  • A turkey cutout will make the perfect topper for our pie!
  • Place your dough cutout on a baking sheet and bake with along with the pie for 10-15 minutes then remove from the oven.
  • Lay your dough inside your pie plate and make a nice ribboned edge
  • Your dough may be a bit of a stinker but be patient and remember it will taste delicious no matter what
