Make the Most of Your Pumpkin Part Two

First use of our pumpkin was baby food, which my daughter gobbled up! See details on how we started out HERE. See also how to make pumpkin pie from a pumpkin.

Next we made Pumpkin Pies.

Here are the ingredients we used to make 4 pies:

8 cups of Pumpkin Puree
2-2 1/2 cups of brown sugar
6 Eggs
4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
4 Cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
4 frozen pie crusts (you can make your own if you wish)

Preheat oven to 425.

Mix your ingredients together and then pour into the pie crusts.

It’s better to set the pie crusts on the oven rack and then pour in your ingredients. It’s really hard to move the pies once they are filled with the ingredients.

Bake at 425 for about 10 minutes, and then reduce the oven temperature to 325. Cook until knife comes out clean when inserted. About an hour or so.

This is the best pumpkin pie in my opinion, and so easy to make! Heed my advice and don’t use canned pumpkin to make your pies. Fresh is so much tastier!

Coming up next, Pumpkin Bread and Pumpkin Pie Popsicles.

    Did you eat all 4 pies (well – not you personally) or can you freeze them for later?

    My family had one, my mother had one, and we gave the others away as little thank you gifts. We’ll make some more come Thanksgiving. I suppose you could freeze them though. They’re always the best straight out of the oven though.

    MMMmmmm….baked one of these pies tonight for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving feast. I thought it would be great to make it ahead of time, but boy oh boy the aroma is just torture! It was so hard not to just eat it all tonight! I’ve always used canned pumpkin so I’m really looking forward to trying a real pumpkin pie made from scratch. Happy Thanksgiving!
