Simple Pumpkin Pie Recipe

As I was looking through all the recipes on our blog for Thanksgiving, I noticed that we don’t have one pumpkin pie recipe on here.
That’s blasphemy! Food bloggers without a pumpkin pie recipe?
So, I hurried and snapped a picture of this pie right before we devoured it – literally, there were people lined up behind me ready to eat it!

My favorite pie recipe is the one that I found on the back of the sweetened condensed milk can years ago. I modified the spices a little bit to how I like it- and if you like a less “spiced” pie, you can easily cut the spices in half.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

  5. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue to bake pie for 35-40 more minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Remove pie from oven and let cool.

  8. To keep edges of the pie crust from burning, wrap the crust with some aluminum foil about half way through baking time and leave it on until the pie is finished baking.
