This easy pumpkin pie recipe is rich, creamy, and packed with warm fall flavors. Served with a dollop of fluffy whipped cream, this classic dessert is a must-try for pumpkin lovers!


  • 1 pie crust recipe, partially baked
  • 1 can (15oz/425g) pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • ½ cup (95g) granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup (55g) light brown sugar
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon (3g) ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon (2.5g) ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • ¾ cup (177ml) evaporated milk
  • ¾ cup (177ml) whole milk


  1. Prepare a 9-inch pie crust and partially blind bake it.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree with the granulated and brown sugar, salt and all spices. Mix to combine.
  3. Next add the eggs and beat until well combined. Then slowly add the milks and mix until incorporated.
  4. Pour the filling in the partially baked crust. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes and then reduce the oven to 350°F for approximately 35 minutes. The center will be slightly giggly. Cool completely prior to serving.
  5. Serve with whipped cream. 


  • A store-bought crust is not large enough for the filling, so if you are using one I recommend only filling it 3/4 of the way and adjusting the bake time accordingly.
