This is a tasty, creamy, and flavorful classic pumpkin pie recipe. It is made with only 4 simple ingredients and can also be prepared in advance, which makes it a perfect dessert for entertaining.
The weather here in Ontario still feels like summer and I’m loving it. However, the calendar says it is officially fall this week and all the retailers are in full-fledged autumn mode. I’m seeing pumpkin this and pumpkin that everywhere I go, so it has me craving…….you guessed it, pumpkin pie.
So today, as a kick-off to my fall season pie-baking, I’ve decided to share with you the easiest, dreamiest pumpkin pie recipe ever! All you need is 4 ingredients, whisk everything together by hand, pour and bake. The result is a perfect and delicious traditional pumpkin pie that is sure to impress your friends and family.
This dessert is smooth and creamy, perfectly spiced, not too sweet, and full of hearty pumpkin flavor. Top it with a dollop of whipped cream and you have yourself a melt-in-your mouth treat.
This shortcut recipe uses a store-bought frozen pie crust to save time and canned pumpkin pie filling, which has all the spices and sugar already in it. The only 2 other things you need are eggs and a can of evaporated milk, and you have yourself an awesome pie.
What’s also great about this recipe is that you can make it a day in advance. I like to make my desserts a day in advance if possible because it is one less thing I have to do the day of. Especially for a large gathering like Thanksgiving dinner, the less I have to do the day of means the more time I have to spend with my family.
