The Best Pumpkin Pie

The best pumpkin pie recipe that has been make famous by Libby's baking team. I've added a couple of ingredients for added flavor along with homemade pie dough and whipped cream. A Thanksgiving favorite to kick-off the holiday season.


  • 1 can (15 ounce) can LIBBY'S 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 can (12 fluid ounce) can NESTLÉ CARNATION Evaporated Milk
  • 2 Large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie pastry (Use Vodka Pie Crust recipe, or purchase frozen pie shell if short on time.)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon water or milk (for egg wash)
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)


Step 1 Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Step 2 Prepare the pie dough and crimp decorative edges. In a small bowl mix the egg and milk/water to make egg wash. Brush egg wash over the crust and place in the freezer.
Step 3 In a medium sauce pan, heat the pumpkin puree on medium heat until just warm, stirring to prevent overheating and burning. (This process removes the tin taste out of the puree).
Step 4 Place the warm pumpkin puree in a large mixing bowl. Add the sugar and mix thoroughly. Then add the eggs to the pumpkin mixture to combine.
Step 5 Add the spices and vanilla to the mixture.
Step 6 Slowly whisk the condensed milk to the seasoned pumpkin mixture to combine thoroughly. Set aside.
Step 7 Remove the prepared pie dough shell from the freezer. Place the pie dough on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the pie shell, filling to just below the decorative edges. Carefully slide the oven rack back into place trying not to "slosh" the pumpkin mixture on the crust edges.
Step 8 Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for another 40-50 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the pie reaches 175 degrees or when a toothpick is inserted in the middle of the pie and comes out clean.
Step 9 Allow pie to cool until room temperature. Serve with whipped cream.
