How To Make Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Whipping up this creamy dreamy pumpkin pie is easier than you may think. Simply combine the pumpkin custard ingredients, mix thoroughly, and pour it into the pie shell.
Bake according to instructions, chill and serve with a friendly smile.
Baking up a perfect pumpkin pie that doesn’t sink in the middle as it cools requires a simple trick or two.
The main thing is to use a handheld mixer (if you have one) instead of a stand-alone. This helps reduce the amount of air in the custard making it silky smooth. If the pumpkin custard has too much air in it, then it puffs up like a souffle as its baking only to sink as it cools.
Classic Pumpkin Pie Ingredient Notes
The delicious pumpkin pie filling is made with evaporated milk and just the right amount of warm fall seasonings. This differs a little from pumpkin pie with sweetened condensed milk but you’re just gonna’ have to trust me on this one

Tools to Make
This crave-worthy pie is an insanely delicious treat that will call your taste buds and it’s simple as can be. The main thing you really need to pull it off is a deep 9-inch pie pan.
How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge?
For best results, let your pie cool completely (not more than 2 hours) before preparing for storage. Just cover with plastic wrap and slide it into the fridge.
Your homemade pie will stay fresh and yummy for up to 3-4 days.
Can You Freeze Them?
Absolutely! I recommend freezing in a disposable aluminum pie pan for a couple of reasons. First, your favorite pie dish won’t be sentenced to the frozen abyss. Second, the disposable ones are thinner so your pie can freeze faster which prevents large ice crystals from forming.
Let your pie cool completely, then wrap in several layers of plastic wrap. It helps to add a layer of aluminum foil before sliding it into the freezer. It’s also important to slow thaw in the fridge overnight before serving. You can freeze this for up to 2 months. Thawing faster or at room temp can cause weeping and make the crust soggy.
Sweet Pumpkin Pie Make Ahead Tips
This sweet pumpkin pie only takes about 15 minutes to put together since you only have to blend the custard ingredients and pour them into the shell. So, there isn’t much to do ahead other than maybe pre-measured ingredients. Of course, you can also go the freezer route.
