What You'll Need for Pumpkin Pie Without Evaporated Milk

These are the ingredients you'll need to make these evaporated milk-less pumpkin pies:

· Pumpkin: Use store-bought pumpkin puree or make your own at home.

· Sugar: Two cups of white sugar makes this pumpkin pie perfectly sweet.
· Eggs: Eggs create a rich texture and help bind the filling together.

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"This recipe was easy to follow with ingredients I always have on hand," says one Allrecipes community member. "My husband thought this was one of the better tasting pumpkin pies he's had."

"I liked this recipe very much," raves Ruth. "The only change I made was to use almond milk in place of milk. It turned out great!"

"I was surprised by how nicely this turned out without using evaporated milk or sweetened condensed milk," according to lorisock. "I baked a fresh pumpkin in the oven first, and that truly gives it the richest flavor since the sugars caramelize so nicely that way."
