· Evaporated milk: Evaporated milk produces creamier results and more concentrated flavor than regular milk.
· Cinnamon whiskey: You'll need a couple shots of cinnamon whiskey, such as Fireball.

How to Make Fireball Pumpkin Pie

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

1. Par-bake the crust: Evenly pierce the unbaked pie crust with a fork. Bake the crust in a preheated oven until it's golden brown.
2. Make the filling: Combine the remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until they're well-combined.
3. Bake the pie: Pour the filling into the par-baked crust. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, then reduce the heat and continue baking until the filling is mostly set.

Can You Get Drunk From Fireball Pumpkin Pie?

No. There are only 3-ounces of whiskey in the whole pie and much of the alcohol dissipates during the baking process.

Can You Bake Fireball Pumpkin Pie Ahead of Time?

Yes, this Fireball pumpkin pie makes a great make-ahead Thanksgiving dessert. In fact, since it needs to fully set in the fridge, it might actually be better to bake the pie the day before you plan to serve it.

How to Store Fireball Pumpkin Pie

Do not let the pie sit at room temperature for more than two hours. Cover the cooled pie with storage wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to four days.

Can You Freeze Fireball Pumpkin Pie?

Yes, you can freeze Fireball pumpkin pie. Bake the pie (preferably in a foil pan), allow it to cool, then wrap it tightly in storage wrap. Wrap it again in a layer of aluminum foil. Freeze for up to one month. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight.

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked deep-dish pie crust, at room temperature

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin pie filling

  • 9 ounces evaporated milk

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 3 fluid ounces cinnamon whiskey (such as Fireball®)

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Evenly pierce entire pie crust with a fork.

  3. Bake crust in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Remove from the oven; increase oven temperature to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  4. Combine pumpkin pie filling, evaporated milk, sugar, whiskey, eggs, salt, ginger, cloves, and cinnamon in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until just blended. Pour into the pre-baked pie crust.

  5. Return to the preheated oven and bake pie for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until filling is set and no longer jiggles, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

  6. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature before serving, about 2 hours.
