1 1/2 cups
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
1 1/4 teaspoons
1 (9 inch)
unbaked pie crust
I made a few changes to this recipes I double the vanilla extract. I substitute cream for the evaporated milk.
i like all pumpkin pies...but i would skip the unnecessary step of adding flour to the batter. since discovering pumpkin chiffon pie, all others seem, just okay...
this recipe is extremely simple. however, it does need some tweaking. after following the directions exactly and reading the reviews after, i would say definitely wrap the crust in foil (mine burned and i only had it in for 28 minutes of the specified 40 at the end), do up the amount of vanilla, and do use more spice. not a bad recipe, just not as flavorful as you might expect from pumpkin pie.
Perfect!! But with a few changes... I used condensed milk instead of evaporated, because I like thick, creamy pumpkin pie, and I used fresh pumpkin instead of canned. I followed others advice and increased the vanilla, added some nutmeg, and replaced a third of the white sugar with brown. It turned out great, and is my new favorite pumpkin pie recipe! Thanks a lot!
it turned out great. my first time making pies. the crust burnt on the sides but i learned to cover the sides w/foil before baking. vanilla flavor is best for those who don't like the spicy flavored pies like me.
You have to adjust the sugar/vanilla level according to what kind of filling you use, and according to your taste. When using "pumpkin pie filling", you can leave the recipe as it is or reduce the sweetness. If using "pure pumpkin filling" or fresh pumpkin, you might want to add more sugar/vanilla or spices. Just do a taste test before baking. I think that the recipe, as written, is best for "pumpkin pie filling". Also, I baked the pie in a water bath and with foil around the rim to prevent burning, and used the recipe "Best Ever Pie Crust" for the crust.
This pie is excellent. Tastes fresh because there aren't too many spices overpowering the pumpkin flavor. It's creamy and bakes high, not flat and hard like some pumpkin pies. Received many compliments on this one.
Excellent pumpkin pie recipe. Even for a non-pumpkin pie lover.
