Equipment

  • mixing bowl
  • Pie plate

Ingredients

Crust:

  • store-bought crust standard size

Filling

  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 can pumpkin puree 15-ounce
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 egg yolks

Instructions

Step 1

    Prepare the Pie Crust:

    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Take out your store-bought pie crust from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly.
    • Dust a clean surface with flour and roll out the pie crust until it fits a standard 9-inch pie plate.
    • Carefully place the rolled-out pie crust into the pie plate, gently pressing it into the bottom and up the sides.
    • Trim any excess dough from the edges and crimp them decoratively with your fingers or a fork.
    • Place the pie crust in the freezer for about 15 minutes to firm up.

    Step 3

      Prepare the Filling:

      • In a large mixing bowl, crack the large egg and add the three egg yolks. Whisk them together until smooth.
      • Add the pumpkin puree, whole milk, heavy cream, and vanilla extract to the bowl with the eggs. Whisk until well combined.
      • In a separate small bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, pumpkin spice, salt, black pepper, and ground cloves.
      • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, whisking continuously until smooth and evenly combined.

      Step 3

        Assemble and Bake the Pie:

        • Take the pre-baked pie crust out of the freezer and line it with parchment paper.
        • Fill the pie crust with pie weights or dried beans to prevent it from puffing up during baking.
        • Bake the pie crust in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
        • Remove the parchment paper and pie weights, then bake for an additional 5 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
        • Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F (160°C).
        • Pour the prepared pumpkin filling into the pre-baked pie crust.
        • Carefully transfer the pie to the oven and bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly.
        • If you have an instant-read thermometer, the center of the pie should measure 175°F (80°C).
        • Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours.
        • Once cooled, cover the pie with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

        Notes

        • – The store-bought crust works perfectly for this recipe, but if you prefer to make your own crust from scratch, feel free to do so.
        • – The combination of spices like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves is what gives this pumpkin pie it’s signature fall flavor, so make sure not to skimp on these ingredients.
