Fresh Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
In my opinion, there’s no contest as to which pie is best. No matter how good your canned pumpkin is, it will never match fresh pie filling made with traditional spices.—Christy Harp, Massillon, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 1 medium pie pumpkin
  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2 eggs

Nutritional Facts

1 piece equals 239 calories, 9 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 60 mg cholesterol, 289 mg sodium, 37 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. Cut pumpkin in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Place cut side down in a microwave-safe dish; add 1 in. of water. Cover and microwave on high for 15-18 minutes or until very tender.
  2. Meanwhile, roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges. Set aside.
  3. Drain pumpkin. When cool enough to handle, scoop out pulp and mash. Set aside 1-3/4 cups (save remaining pumpkin for another use).
  4. In large bowl, combine the mashed pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves; beat until smooth. Gradually beat in milk. Pour into crust.
  5. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 40-45 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cover edges with foil during the last 30 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 13, 2014

"I made this recipe b/c of all the great ratings, but I thought it was the worst pumpkin pie I’ve ever had. Feedback from friends was mixed…a couple thought it was bad too, a couple thought it was ok, but no one raved about it. One liked that it wasn't very sweet. Baked it less time b/c the crust was burning, even with foil around it. Pie was a little looser than I would have liked, but didn’t want to keep it in any longer. Can’t believe so many people gave it 5s!"

"I was very intimidated by the idea of making a pumpkin from scratch with a fresh picked pumpkin. I was lucky enough to run across this recipe first and it didn't take me very long at all! My husband hates pumpkin pie and he devoured my pie from this recipe! So easy and DELICIOUS! I will be making this pie recipe every year from now on for Thanksgiving!"

"It was so easy!!! I cut my pumpkin in half and baked in oven, but the recipe was the best pumpkin pie recipe that I have tried, and I have tried plenty!!!"
