Pumpkin Pie Recipe

October 7, 2019


  • 2 eggs
  • +2 egg yolks
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • 2 cup actual pumpkin purée (fresh, not canned or processed)
  • 1 ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla 


Use a premade (9 inch), in-pan crust. Preheat oven to 275 F. Whisk together eggs, yolks and sugars. Add butter, pumpkin, cream, spices, salt and vanilla and whisk until combined. Pour mixture into the baked pie crust. Bake until filling is almost set (approx. 1 ½  hours). Be sure to cover the edges of your pie crust with aluminum foil to prevent them from burning. This should make three pies if you double the recipe (it makes a bit more than one pie).
