Bundaratna.com - Pumpkin pie is a dessert made with pumpkin puree, spices, and sweetened condensed milk, baked in a pie crust. It is typically served during the fall and winter holiday seasons, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. The pie filling is made with pumpkin puree, which is mashed cooked pumpkin mixed with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger, and sweetened with sugar or sweetened condensed milk. The filling is poured into a pie crust and baked until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown. Pumpkin pie is often served with whipped cream on top.
Pumpkin pie Recipe
Here is a simple recipe for pumpkin pie:
- 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
- 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 (9-inch) deep-dish pie crust, store-bought or homemade
- Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
- In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, and cloves until well combined. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the pie crust, smoothing the top with a spatula.
- Bake the pie for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (180°C) and continue baking for an additional 45 minutes, or until the pie is set and the crust is golden brown.
- Let the pie cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
- Serve the pie chilled, with whipped cream on top, if desired.
Note: You can also make the pie filling using 1 3/4 cups of homemade pumpkin puree and 3/4 cup of sugar instead of sweetened condensed milk. Simply mix the pumpkin puree and sugar together with the eggs and spices until well combined, and proceed with the recipe as directed.
