The Best Pumpkin Pie Ever!

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 55 mins

I call it this because that what everyone else calls it! I get requests for this every Thanksgiving and even diehard pumpkin pie haters have been converted after tasting it. Serve with softly whipped cream or some good vanilla ice cream. Please note: If planning to make just one pie, I recommond using a deep dish pie shell as the recipe makes enough filling for two regular pies.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large bowl combine the pumpkin puree, condensed milk, eggs, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
  3. Mix well and turn into the crust.
  4. Bake 15 minutes; reduce the oven temperature to 350° and bake another 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted 1-inch from the edge comes out clean.
  5. Cool before cutting.
  6. Garnish with whipped cream.
  7. Refrigerate leftovers.

Wonderful! I made it as written except I added a 1/4 tsp. of ground cloves. I forgot the whipped cream and was pleased to see that this pie didn't need it. The flavor and texture were perfect. Thanks for sharing.

This pie was the best! I used to hate pumpkin pie as a child and only recently have started to eat it.Followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out to be the best pie that I have ever eaten--no whipped cream needed, though I wouldn't turn it down if you had some!!!!Great recipe, thanks!

Did you know? Using DARK brown sugar will add just a little more depth of flavor and wont darken the pie anymore than light brown. One of my secrets is to mix in only the yolks first, then, at the end of all the adding and mixing, beat the whites separately till fluffy and gently fold them in. You will have a lighter pie and will use less filling per pie as well.
