Super Easy and Part Homemade Pumpkin Pie Recipe

It’s November which means we are preparing for Thanksgiving and remembering all the people and blessings we are thankful for.  One of my absolute favorite recipes for this time of year is our famous Part Homemade Pumpkin Pie Recipe.  There is not a year that goes by that we don’t make this amazing pie.  There’s just something about me and my girls preparing the pie together and the fact that it’s homemade, well…  part homemade anyway.  If you are beginner in the kitchen I highly suggest you try making this pie.  It’s so easy and it’s hard to mess up.  There are a few tips and tricks that you need to know before you start.
Best Homemade Pumpkin Pie Recipe

First, I always start with trusted ingredients!  You don’t want your pie to stick to your pan so I trust PAM for my baking needs.  Always.

The next thing I do is invest in a nice pie dish.  You don’t want a cheap metal dish that will burn your beautiful pie!  You can see in the photo that I used my Le Creuset Stoneware Pie dish!  It’s beautiful, sturdy and is amazing when it bakes my pies!!!

If you can make those two tips your top priority that I can nearly guarantee that your pie will be a huge success!  PAM Cooking spray so your pie doesn’t stick and a high quality baking dish that bakes it evenly!  Perfect combo!!  Actually, PAM makes my life a tad bit easier because they made a cooking spray that has 99% less residue buildup than margarine or those other bargain brand cooking sprays.  This means absolutely no stick results but it’s also really easy on the clean up part too!  I love that!  I bake a lot so I’ve experienced both a bad cooking spray and a bad pan.  Never again!

Now that you have all the right baking tools you need the ingredients!

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 box of rolled pie crust
  • 9 inch pie crust pan
  • PAM cooking spray

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Spray your pie pan with PAM cooking spray first.  Lay out the pie crust across your pie dish.  Create a decorative edge on your pie crust be pinching your finger and thumb together and taking your other finger and pushing the dough into your finger and thumb.  (see the photo for a visual example).  You could also tear off the edge and braid it too but I find the technique in the photo to be easier.

Next mix the pumpkin, eggs, milk and spice in a bowl until it’s smooth and creamy.

Pour the mixture into your prepared pie crust.

Bake for a full 15 minutes on 425 degrees just long enough for the edges of the pie crust to get to a golden brown color.   IMPORTANT TIP:  Place a thin piece of tin foil around the edges of the pie crust to protect them from getting crispy and or burnt.  Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking it for another 40 minutes.  To test if it’s done you will take a butter knife and stick it in the center of the pie.  If the knife comes out completely clean then it’s done.  If it doesn’t continue cooking it for 10 minutes at a time until it’s completely done.

  1. Hello dear friend, I liked so much your recipe!! Im from Brazil, but I want so much try to do this pie!! I love pumpkin…..and I love cooking! Im English teacher and part of the time, housewife!! I hope that you answer me!!

  2. First of all, thanks for the recipe! My oldest daughter really loves making pies, so I’m going to give her control over this one for Thanksgiving!

    I am most thankful for Jesus dying on the cross for me. I know that seems like a scripted answer, or a one-upper, goody-two-shoes answer, but it is my answer all the same. I don’t push my faith on anyone else, but I couldn’t feel good about posting my family and friends first, when I wouldn’t have any of them (or my salvation) without giving thanks to God. So, there ya go!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all, and good luck!

  3. I am most thankful for being here for another year to enjoy my family. I have been in the hospital 5 time this past year so it is a blessing to still be alive. Thanks so much for the giveaway and happy holidays to you and your family!

  4. I am thankful that I am not in the hospital / home in the bed this holiday season. Though still quite ill with my Lupus, I am so thankful to be able to enjoy some time with my family and friends.

  5. I’m thankful for so many things! A decent job for both my hubs and I, my kids working hard for good grades, reliable cars, food to eat, and a few extra bucks for ice cream night and maybe an impromptu shopping trip! But mostly, I’m thankful my family is healthy and happy and our lives our filled with lots of good that outweighs the bad!

  6. I am thankful that I have a steady job, great friends and an awesome, supportive family. Couldn’t pick just one…they are all important. I am thankful that I am able to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for my family this year, last Thanksgiving I was in the hospital so they had to depend on our great circle of friends for a Thanksgiving meal. This year I am doing the cooking, thankfully, and I am serving your pumpkin pie recipe for dessert. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  7. I am most thankful that we have a new baby (my second grandson) here to celebrate the holidays with us this year.

  8. So much to be thankful for but today I am most thankful that my parents have both gotten excellent medical care with some serious health crises the last couple of weeks in spite of all the problems with healthcare nationwide. Thankful that God is good, and He always provides!
