What Ingredients are in a Pumpkin Pie?
This pie has five ingredients. They are all easy to find in any grocery store.
Pumpkin Puree- This is the one ingredient that you have to be careful about when purchasing. There is pumpkin puree and there is pumpkin pie filling. The puree is only pumpkin. Nothing else is added. That is the one you want to buy. The other one has sugar and spices added already and will not work in this recipe.
Sweetened Condensed Milk- Adds sweetness and creaminess to the filling.
Eggs- Use large eggs for this pie recipe. Eggs help set the filling.
Pumpkin Pie Spice- You can use a store-bought spice blend or make your own. I make my own blend.
Premade frozen Pie Crusts- Homemade crusts are usually my choice but I wrote this recipe using premade crusts. Thaw the crusts for 1 hour at room temperature before filling.
Decorating A Pumpkin Pie
There are ways to make pumpkin pie look fancier without a lot of work.
My favourite way to do this is to have an extra crust thawed, and roll it out on a lightly floured surface. Then use seasonal cookie cutters to cut out shapes to place on top of the pie. These are placed on top of the pie after the first 15 minutes of baking time. When you reduce the temperature of the oven, quickly open the door and add the shapes.
