Perfect Pumpkin Pie Recipe

best pumpkin pie recipe for thanksgiving
  • Never Fail Pie Crust Recipe (single crust)
  • 3 eggs     
  • 2-3 teas pumpkin pie spice
  • 15 oz Pumpkin (not Pumpkin pie) 
  • 1 stick butter, melted
    1 cup sugar    
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
    ¼ teas salt
Preheat oven to 425 F. Make a single pie crust and put in pie plate. Mix all remaining ingredients thoroughly in a bowl. Pour into uncooked pie shell. Cook in preheated oven at 425 for 15 minutes. Turn oven down to 350 F and bake an additional 50 minutes. No need to put knife in – it is perfect every time!   I prefer to eat the pie chilled with whip cream. Refrigerate leftovers.

Single Pie Crust:

In bowl, combine flour & salt; cut in the shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, towing with a fork until a ball forms. Chill dough. Do not over mix or add more flour than necessary.

Homemade Pie Crust is way better!

Roll out pastry with chilled rolling pan to fit a pie pan. (Do NOT over handle!!) Flute edges if desired. Hint: Cover edges of pie when baking until the last 20 minutes or baking.
