Pumpkin Pie

Tried this recipe from Allrecipes and also adapted from Canadian Living.


  • 1 can (15 ounces, 1 3/4 cup) canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 can (14 ounces, 414 mL) Sweet Condensed Milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 unbaked pie crust - I used a frozen deep pie crust, which required thawing for 15 minutes before pouring contents into pie dish.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  1. Heat canned pumpkin puree, spices and salt over low heat for 8-10 minutes. Stir frequently. Heating the puree removes the "canny" taste.
  2. Remove mixture from heat and pour into bowl. Add condensed milk, vanilla and eggs. Whisk together until well combined. 
  3. Pour pumpkin filling mixture into crust. 
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
  5. Reduce oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 35-45 minutes until cake taster comes out clean. 
  6. To prevent cracking of crust, allow the pie to cool gradually in the oven. 

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Gather all of your ingredients.

3. Take out unbaked pie crust from freezer, it requires 15 minutes to thaw at room temperature.

3.  Measure out 1 3/4 cups of pumpkin puree:

4. Heat pumpkin puree & spices (ground cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg) over medium heat for 8-10 minutes. 

Pumpkin Puree and Ground Cloves:

Cinnamon and nutmeg:

Heat for 8 minutes:

5. Remove heated pumpkin puree mixture from heat, and pour into a bowl.

6. Measure out 400 mL of condensed milk. 

7. Pour into pumpkin puree mixture.

8. Add 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

9. Add the two large eggs. I actually whisked them beforehand before adding them to the pumpkin mixture:

10. Whisk together mixture until well combined:

11. Pour pumpkin puree mixture into deep pie dish.

It should be filled about this much: 

12. Place in oven, it should bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Decrease temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 45 minutes or until cake taster comes out clean.

13. Once down turn off oven heat and allow pumpkin pie to cool down in oven.

Your Pie is Done!
