The Best Pumpkin Pie

Confession, I was never the biggest pumpkin pie- until I had this one. My friend Kathryn made this one year for Thanksgiving and it was simply the best! So light, fluffy and not overly spices with a delicate crust!  All of us love it!

Just in time for the American Thanksgiving, here's one of the very best Thanksgiving recipes!


For the crust:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter (1 stick), melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more as needed

For the pie:

  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin purée (not pie mix)
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

(whipped cream for serving)

For the crust:
  • Stir the butter, oil, sugar, and salt together in a medium bowl until evenly combined. Add the measured flour and stir until a soft dough forms.
  • Sprinkle the dough in small clumps over the bottom of a 9-1/2-inch deep-dish pie plate. 
  • Using a measuring cup, press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of the plate (flour the cup or your fingers occasionally to prevent sticking). 
  • Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
For the pie:
  • Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the lower third. Place a baking sheet on the rack while the oven is heating.
  • Place ingredients  for the filling in a large bowl and whisk until smooth and combined. Pour into the chilled pie crust.
  • Place the pie on the hot baking sheet and bake until the top starts to brown and the filling is set but still jiggles slightly in the center, about 50 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven to a wire rack and cool completely before serving. 
  • Top slices of the pie with whipped cream, if desired.
Soooooooooo good! If you are looking for a last minute pie recipe here it is!
