Pumpkin pie has always been in demand around our house and for years, I searched for the perfect recipe, and I believe I have found it. This recipe has the perfect blend of spice and sweet and melts in your mouth. I will hopefully find time to follow this post up with my pie crust recipe as well, but here is the recipe for the filling! I really hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
|The filling should be smooth by the time you are done with all the whisking.|
|Here it is before being baked, alongside an apple pie.|
|You can tell that I did my egg wash hurriedly as only parts of the crust are browned, oops!|
Pumpkin Pie: adapted from Epicurious
makes 1 pie
3/4 cup sugar
1 T brown sugar
1 T cornstarch
2 t cinnamon
3/4 t ginger
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t cloves
1 16oz can pure pumpkin
3/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup sour cream
3 large eggs
Whisk first 6 ingredients until there are no lumps left. Add in pumpkin, cream, sour cream, and eggs and beat well to combine. Bake in a 9in pie crust until the filling cracks at the edges and still jiggles in the middle, you don't want to overbake it!
-You can adjust the spices to your liking
- I always do an egg wash on my pie crusts
- Make sure that there are absoluetely no lumps in the batter!
