This pumpkin pie is delicious on its own or topped with whipped cream. You can also serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try adding a tablespoon of bourbon or rum to the pumpkin mixture for a boozy twist. You can also substitute the ground spices for pumpkin pie spice if you have it on hand.
If you don’t have sweetened condensed milk, you can substitute it with evaporated milk and a sweetener of your choice. You can also use a homemade pie crust instead of a pre-made one.
You can store leftover pumpkin pie in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Cover it with plastic wrap or aluminum foil to keep it fresh.
- Blind baking the pie crust before adding the filling helps prevent a soggy bottom.
- Don’t overmix the pumpkin mixture as it can create air pockets that cause cracks in the pie.
- Allow the pie to cool completely before slicing to prevent it from falling apart.
If you’re using a glass pie dish, reduce the oven temperature to 325°F (160°C) to prevent the crust from overbrowning.
