Easy Pumpkin Pie Ingredients

Believe it or not, you can make this bakery-worthy pumpkin pie with just five easy-to-find ingredients:

· Pie Crust: Use a store-bought crust or make your own with our top-rated Butter Flaky Pie Crust recipe. 
· Pumpkin Puree: This simple pumpkin pie recipe calls for a 16-ounce can of pumpkin puree. Of course, you can puree your own pumpkin if you want to go the homemade route. 
· Sweetened Condensed Milk: A can of sweetened condensed milk adds irresistible flavor and creates a rich, smooth texture. 
· Eggs: Two whole eggs lend richness and help bind the filling together. 
· Pumpkin Pie Spice: A teaspoon of aromatic pumpkin pie spice gives this pumpkin pie all the aromatic, cozy flavor you need.

You'll find the full, step-by-step recipe below — but here's a brief overview of what you can expect when you make this easy pumpkin pie: 

1. Mix: Combine the pumpkin puree, condensed milk, eggs, and pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl. Mix until smooth, then pour into the prepared pie crust.
2. Bake: Bake in an oven preheated to 425 degrees F for about 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees F and continue baking until the filling is set.  

How to Tell When Pumpkin Pie Is Done

The best and easiest way to check if your pumpkin pie is done? Insert a knife into the pie, about an inch away from the crust. If it comes out clean, the filling is set and it's ready to remove from the oven.

This easy pumpkin pie is delicious enough to serve as-is, but you can't go wrong by pairing it with a dollop of homemade whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

How Long Does Pumpkin Pie Last In the Fridge?

Since pumpkin pie has an egg-rich filling, it should always be stored in the refrigerator. Cover the pie with storage wrap and store in the fridge for three to four days. 

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"So simple," according to mmrtnz. "We had our little one make this on her own while teaching her to read and understand recipes. It came out perfect and she's very pleased with herself! Great, simple recipe for a quick pumpkin pie for the holidays."

"Excellent," raves Allrecipes Allstar Yoly. "I added a tsp. of vanilla and a tsp. of cinnamon. I used a frozen deep dish pie crust and the amount of pumpkin was perfect."

'I made this as a crustless pumpkin pie,' says Challena. "I just put the filling in a casserole dish and baked it. Topped it with whipped cream while still warm....quick, easy and tasty!"
