The Best Pumpkin Pie Recipe
This recipe has been made by thousands in my Pumpkin Magic Cake recipe, so I thought I would re-share the recipe in it’s original pie form.
I’ve been making this pumpkin pie recipe for several years now, and it is ALWAYS a hit!
Every holiday table should have at least one pumpkin pie on it, and I’m letting you know right now, this one will not disappoint.
The recipe couldn’t be any easier either.
Pumpkin Pie Filling Ingredients:
- Pumpkin Puree – make sure you’re using the puree, not the canned pumpkin pie filling.
- Heavy Whipping Cream – at least 33% fat content
- Evaporated Milk – adds a delicious richness to the pie filling
- Brown Sugar
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – use the store bought mix or you can use a homemade blend if desired.
Since I include a little heavy cream with the traditional evaporated milk, it’s a nice and rich pie that’s filled with that delightful pumpkin pie spice.
How To Make Pumpkin Pie
- Just add all the ingredients to a large bowl and whisk to combine. I like to use an electric mixer and try to run it for a couple minutes to get the mixture nice and fluffy.
- Pour the filling into an unbaked pie shell and pop in the oven.
- Start with a higher oven temp, then reduce the temperature to finish baking for the perfect custard-like consistency.
Can I use store bought pie crust for my Pumpkin Pie?
Yes! When you make the pie, you can use either a store-bought pie crust dough, such as Pillsbury, or you can make your own pie crust.
I have two fantastic homemade pie crust recipes. Both will work great for this recipe.
With a flaky crust and a rich and perfectly spiced pumpkin pie filling, you’re sure to have success when the big dinner comes.

The filling recipe is the same filling that I use in my Pumpkin Magic Cake and Chocolate Pumpkin Magic Cake. It’s also the same filling for my Pumpkin Pie Bars so you know it’s been tested and approved. Award winning, even!
