A Meal To Be Thankful For

How to Make Pumpkin Pie:

Here's what we at HIA love about this recipe: This pie is incredibly easy to make, even for new to the kitchen bakers. Of course, you can add to the steps below by making your own pie crust, blind baking your crust, etc., but the whole process can really be boiled down to three simple steps.

Step 1: Mix

First you need to preheat the oven. Then you can start by mixing all the ingredients for your filling: pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Whisk it all together until smooth.

Step 2: Bake

Pour the mixture into your pie crust (store-bought or homemade is fine). Bake in the preheated oven.

Step 3: Reduce Heat and Bake Some More

Now you'll reduce the heat and continue to bake. This helps the pie to cook evenly without cracking. Once a knife inserted 1 inch from the crust comes out clean, then it's ready. The center should be just a little jiggly. Let cool and serve, refrigerate, or freeze. Really, that's it!
