Pumpkin Chiffon Pie Tips

What is a chiffon pie?

Chiffon pies traditionally have a fluffy, aerated filling, usually created by whipping and folding in egg whites (meringue) or whipped cream. Try our fruity chiffon pies, like lemon, strawberry and orange.

What are some variations of this Pumpkin Chiffon Pie?

Try swapping out the graham crust with a gingersnap crust. Or give even more of a twist by using cranberry sauce, making a cream cheese layer or stirring in eggnog and spices.

Can you make Pumpkin Chiffon Pie ahead of time?

Yes, you can make Pumpkin Chiffon Pie ahead of time! Keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 days. Just hold off on garnishing with whipped cream and/or nuts until you serve the pie.
