Making Homemade Pumpkin Pie

Provided By

This traditional homemade pumpkin pie is made from scratch with homemade puree. Homemade pumpkin puree can also be used in any pumpkin recipe calling for canned pumpkin. To substitute homemade puree, use 1 3/4 cups of pumpkin puree in place of a 15 oz. can of pumpkin.

Once the pumpkin puree is made, the pie is made in the same basic manner that it would be if using canned pumpkin.

Using your own homemade pumpkin puree will make these recipes extra delicious.

Traditional Homemade Pumpkin Pie


  • 1 single pie crust, 9 inch
  • 1 1/2 c. pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 c. heavy cream
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 c. light corn syrup
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • whipped cream for serving
  • Have the single 9-inch pie crust prepared and chilled. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Combine flour in with the brown sugar and stir until they are evenly distributed.

  • Add the brown sugar and flour mixture to the pumpkin puree and heavy cream. Beat until well blended.

  • Add the salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Stir into pumpkin mixture.

  • Add corn syrup and beat until well blended.

  • Add the beaten eggs and vanilla to the mixture.

  • Beat the eggs and vanilla into the mixture until thoroughly mixed.

  • Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 50 to 60 minutes.

  • Check after 30 minutes to see if it looks like the crust is going to brown too much. If so, place a piece of foil over the pie. Remove the foil for the last 10 minutes of baking time so crust will finish browning.
  • To check for doneness, insert the tip of a table knife in about 1 inch from the center of the pie. The knife will come out clean if the pie is done.

  • Or, gently shake the pie and if about an inch of the center jiggles a little, the pie is done. The center will set from the heat of the pie after it is removed from the oven. If more than just the center jiggles, continue to cook and check for doneness at 5 minute intervals.

  • When the homemade pumpkin pie is done, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool completely before serving. Serve with a spoonful of whipped cream on each slice.
