If you are like me then you love pumpkin everything and pumpkin pie is simply a must at Thanksgiving. Well, if you are truly like me then pumpkin pie is good all year round! As soon as the last beach day goes by I am ready for Fall and with Fall comes pumpkin. It is the most exciting time of the year for me.
Now, I am no baker, just an ordinary working mom of two who usually fails at baking recipes however, with this pie recipe, I feel like I would win a baking competition. It’s that good! It’s also the easiest pumpkin pie recipe and tastes the best.
There are a few surprises in the recipe such as pepper. Yes, I said pepper, and even though the recipe requires such a small amount it really makes such a difference. Don’t skip the pepper! This is the absolute best pumpkin pie recipe ever!
In this article, I am also going to share a pie crust recipe that I have used, also very easy. You can choose to make the pie crust or purchase a store bought roll out brand. Each one is fine. It really depends on how much time you have and how much effort you want to give.
If you really want to make them say wow, use a cookie cutter such as a turkey or leaf and cut out pieces of you pie crust to place on top of your pie. Y It really makes the pies look beautiful.
Just make sure you bake the pie crust shapes separate from your pie. About 10 minutes in the oven should do it. Then just let them cool and place them on top of your pie. Everyone will be really impressed with this simple move.
Another way to make your pie look like a professional baked it is to not make a crust along the edges, but to use a leaf cookie cutter to cut out leaves from you pie crust and place them around your pie like a crust, shown in the above picture.
Again you would back the cut outs separately for about 10 minutes, then lay them across your pie.
Pie Crust Recipe
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup vegatable oil
1/3 cup milk
Mix all the ingredients together. Roll the dough into a ball. Roll the dough out onto parchment paper or a baking mat. When the dough is rolled out pick it up and place it on your pie plate. You are going to pre-bake your pie crust at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
If you are using store bought pie crust, also roll the dough out and place it in the pie plate, you will also need to pre-bake it for 10 minutes.
While your pie crust is baking you can get started on your pumpkin pie recipe.
