Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 55 mins
Total Time 1 hr 10 mins
Servings 6



  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup canned pure pumpkin 398ml can
  • 1 large can 370ml evaporated milk (or canned coconut milk*)


  • Mix all filling ingredients in a large microwave safe bowl. Cook on HIGH for 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. This helps to precook the filling, so it doesn't need to be in the oven as long, and preventing the crust from overcooking.
  • Pour into unbaked pie crust, and bake at 400°F for 15 minutes, reduce to 350°F and continue baking for 40 minutes or until knife comes out clean.


*if using coconut milk, use a mixture of regular and low fat, to try and get a similar thickness as evaporated milk would be.

  1. Hmm…I can’t recall that one, not sure what happened (could have been lost when we transferred to the new system). If you haven’t already, check out this article: How To Cook The Perfect Turkey Dinner, it has a stuffing recipe. You can easily replace the cranberries with some dried cherries.

  2. Hi Angie, I was wondering what happened to your “mom’s perfect pumpkin pie” recipe? it had pecans and whipped cream on top. I made it one year and it was the best pumpkin pie EVER! Is this recipe close to it? The link I had to it hasn’t worked since you switched over.

  3. The links from the old site won’t work anymore. This recipe is almost exact (which is why when we switched over we went through and deleted any duplicates, updated old favorites, etc). This recipe is now my favorite pumpkin pie in the whole world…so let me know what you think!

  4. It certainly did not disappoint! It was absolutely delicious! I prefer to use real pumpkin instead of canned and 3 tsp of pumpkin spice (easier) instead of the individual spices. My family raved about it. Thank you!

  5. Ya!!! I’m so glad you love this pie as much as I do! For me, the perfect pumpkin pie is all about a particular blend of spices and their quantities (which is why I love this recipe so much-allspice is a must!). But if you’ve found a premixed pumpkin spice blend that you love – that’s awesome, that does make it soo much easier. For more flavor, add a few shakes of your spice mix in with some whipped cream to top the pie with!

  6. The link to the pie crust in the recipe is gluten free. You can be assured that every recipe on our site is gluten free.
