Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe

I wish you could smell my house right now! It smells like fall. With Thanksgiving right around the corner and the possibility that it might be your year to bring pies, I’m here for you!

We're going to make an almost completely from scratch pumpkin pie today. Now, before you click off and move on to another recipe, remember you’re cooking with Annie. Haha! I keep things easy, and this will be no different.

How to Make Pumpkin Puree

If you’ve never roasted a whole pumpkin before, please listen. This is so easy, and anyone can do it! Grab a small pie pumpkin, wash it, poke a couple of holes with a knife, and throw it in the oven for an hour and a half at 350 degrees. Pull it out and slice it in half. Scoop out the seeds and then scoop out the pulp. The pulp is what you will use for your pie. If you’d rather just use a small can of pumpkin, I won’t tell anyone. But if you do use “real” pumpkins, be prepared to be the queen or king of your gathering! It brings a fresh taste to your pie that is unmatched.

Pierce the pumpkin with a knife a couple of times.

The pulp is the good stuff and what you’ll use for your pie.

Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe

I use Pillsbury pie crust since I didn't have time to make my own. And guess what? No one will ever know!


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, beat 3 eggs and 1 cup of sugar. Add in the rest of the ingredients and carefully mix. It'll be pretty liquid, but it'll bake up perfectly. Then, place in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Carefully remove from the oven and allow to cool a little bit. Serve with homemade whipped topping or store-bought is fine too. Then, go ahead and brag a little about your almost-from-scratch pumpkin pie!

Until next time,
