Cook's Notes

    This is the one I was looking for. I’m a pumpkin aholic, and have tried quite a few pumpkin pie recipes that were so disappointing. My Only change was to cook for 40 minutes in lieu of 1 hr. (for my oven). I really like a “creamy” pie, in lieu of dense which is why I steer away from sweetented condensed milk or cream cheese pumpkin pie recipes. Yum, I could eat this entire pie myself. Particularly still warm from the oven with that maple whipped cream!

    This recipe doesn't include the temperature for baking the pie. Is it the same as the crust temperature, 350 degrees?

    I adore this recipe and it's officially the only one we use. We are planning to bake mini versions of it in tart pans for our groom's cake at our wedding in only a couple weeks. Anyways, wondering if anyone has had experience doubling/tripling the recipe? I just want to be sure it will be just as delicious...or if there is anything we should do differently?! Thanks!

    I made this with real pumpkins. I baked 2 small sugar pumpkins, removed peel, then puree. I measured out about 15 ounces to replace the can pumpkin. It turned out great!

    I made this pie last week and it was delicious and so easy. I used a frozen 9" pie crust and let it defrost for 20 minutes before filling it with the filling. Then I cooked it for 60 minutes as per directions, and it turned out just right. I only used 3/4 cup half-and-half, and that was just right, too. Any more than that seemed like too much. When you make the filling, it will look a little watery, but don't worry because it sets great! I didn't make the whipped cream & didn't miss it.

    This is a GREAT pumpkin pie!! Mild and good! The maple in the whipped cream is a nice subtle touch.
