How To Serve Pumpkin Pie

The pumpkin is known best for harvest time, thanksgiving, or the Autumn season. But you can have this mouthwatering pie anytime you so choose to; top it with some rich whipped cream, and everyone will be scrambling for a slice.

Our recipe yields 8 to 10 slices from a 9-inch pie. This amount can do for a family dessert after dinner or brunch, anything that brings people together. Everyone will enjoy it so much that it will become the talk of the day.

 

Utensils used:

 Pie Plate – I placed the crust in this for baking.

• Mixing Bowl – a large bowl is required to combine your ingredients for the pie filling.

• Whisk – used to mix the ingredients thoroughly; you can also used a fork for this.

 

Main Ingredients

The main flavoring ingredient used in this recipe is pumpkin. You can boil and mash it or purchase the canned variety to make life easier. Either way, your pie filling will be amazingly delicious and beautiful in color.

 

Substitutes

A good substitute for milk in this recipe is powdered milk or evaporated milk. You can use whichever milk you want but be sure to stick to the correct measurement. 

Also, you can substitute cloves with allspice. It gives the same great taste to the pumpkin pie and more.

 

All ingredients:

• Pie Crust – you can use a homemade or frozen pie crust.

• Pumpkin – used as the main flavoring of the filling.

• Salt – used to enhance the flavor of the pie.

• Milk – added to the filling mixture for moisture and flavor.

• Eggs – added for structure and color.

• Sugar – both granulated and brown to enhance the taste of the pumpkin mixture.

• Cinnamon – used as a flavoring agent.

• Ground ginger – adds spice and depth of flavor to the pie.

• Nutmeg – gives the pie a spicy aroma.

• Cloves – you can also use allspice.

 

Steps

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

2. Roll the pie crust onto a lightly floured surface and place it on the pie pan.

3. Using your fingers, crimp the overhanging edges of the pie crust, set it aside, and make the pumpkin filling.

4. In a large mixing bowl, add the milk, pumpkin, and eggs, then whisk in all the spices until well blended.

5. Pour the filling into the pie pan but do not fill the dish to the top.

6. Bake for 45-50 minutes in the preheated oven, and watch it closely in the last 10 minutes to prevent burning.

7. Check if the pie is ready by sliding a paring knife into the filling. If it doesn’t come out clean, return it to the oven for a few more minutes, then test it again.

8. Remove the pie and allow it to cool completely before serving.

 

Why Not Fill The Pie Pan?

Your pie to overflow during baking if you fill the pie pan all the way. I only filled it about three-quarters of the way; This will also prevent you from spilling the filling when transferring the pie to the oven.

 

How to Check For Doneness

To check if the pie is ready, I pushed a pairing knife into the filling to see if it came out dry. You can also use a toothpick or a skewer as a tester instead of a paring knife. This way, you won’t have an unsightly crack in your pie.

 

Storage

If you do not plan to consume the pie within two hours of baking, you can store the pie in a loosely covered container and refrigerate for up to 4 days. 

You can also freeze the leftover pie for 3 months but bear in mind that the texture may be negatively affected.
