Nothing says Thanksgiving better than Pumpkin pie! We love pumpkin pie for so many reasons! The crispy crust, the spiced filling, and the sweet pumpkin flavor. Perfect for dessert, then again with your morning coffee. This recipe is so easy that you’ll wonder why you don’t make this delicious pie more often!

We recommend using our flaky and flavorful pie dough recipe for the single crust you’ll need to complete this dessert which can be made up to 3 days in advance, making day of cooking that much easier! Want to make it extra special? We would also suggest topping with little Cinnamon Whipped Cream!

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Course: Dessert
Servings: 8 Slices
Calories: 279kcal


  • 1 9" pie crust unbaked

Pie Filling

  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 15 oz pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup brown sugar packed
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • tsp ground cloves
  • tsp ground nutmeg
  • 12 oz evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cream optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. You should have your pie dough in a lightly greased and floured pie plate, ready to use. Once you have put the dough in the pie plate, put in refrigerator for 20-30 minutes (while you are preparing the filling) as this will help reduce any shrinkage while baking.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Mix in evaporated milk and vanilla.
  • In a small bowl, beat egg and cream together. You can use water instead of cream if desired for the egg wash.
  • Add filling to prepared pie plate. Lightly brush exposed dough (primarily the crust) with egg wash. This will help it brown while cooking, giving your pie a nice finished look. Bake for 70-75 minutes, or until the center of the pie is set. Let cool before serving. Enjoy!
