Easy 5 Ingredient Pumpkin Pie

 

Looking for a perfect pumpkin pie recipe? This super easy pumpkin pie comes has only five simple ingredients and is totally foolproof.

Am I the only one already drooling thinking about Thanksgiving dinner? Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays, and I am SUPER excited that this year my big brother Paul and his family will be joining us all the way from Washington State. It has been years since we’ve hosted a big family Thanksgiving at our house and I seriously can’t wait!

While I definitely want to pull out all the stops, I also want to make sure that I don’t get totally overwhelmed. Thus, this year I am focusing on simple recipes that provide all of the homemade flavor I crave with a lot less effort. And let me tell you, this super easy 5 ingredient pumpkin pie is pretty much perfect! I don’t think anything can beat the flavor of a pie made completely from scratch, with fresh roasted pumpkin and the perfect homemade pie crust to go with it. But quite frankly, who has time for all that? And while it might not top it, this “cheater” version is a very, VERY close second! Since it literally takes about 5 minutes of hands-on time, I think it is a trade-off I can live with! But don’t take my word for it–try it yourself and see!

Easy Pumpkin Pie

Here is what you need:

1 refrigerated rolled pie crust
1 15oz can pumpkin
1 15 oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)

Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Unroll pie crust per package instructions; place in 9″ pie plate.

Step 2: Combine pumpkin, condensed milk, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until well blended, about 1 minute.

Step 3: Pour pumpkin mixture into pie crust.

Step 4: Fold over pie crust edges and crimp with fingers to make decorative edge. Cover pie crust with foil to prevent excessive browning.

Step 5: Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 35o and bake 40-50 minutes longer, until pie is set and knife comes out clean. Cool 2 hours. Serve with whipped cream.

  • Will definitely try it!! Does it have to be a refrigerated crust?

  • This is almost the pie we have always made in my family. ours is 30 oz. pure pumpkin and 1 egg (and we use the individual spices instead of the mix). But you are missing the most awesome part in this recipe, the streusel topping. Honestly its amazing either way (for a large gathering we make one of each). Only downside, we can never eat store bought pumpkin pie after growing up with this.

  • Thanks for sharing! I made it for my husband’s friend who loves Pumpkin Pie,,,just some comments from the office.

    Pumpkin pie is absolutely delicious!! OMG it's so good

    Steve J says A###

  • My boys made this as for one of their homeschooling projects today. It is DELICIOUS! This may turn in to a weekly assignment. ;)

  • Hi, I am a 21 years old student living in Quebec city, and I really love your recipe. I had never make pumpkin pie before and you really make it easy. I've done it twice now! Very good. Thank you very much. :)

  • Refreshing to see such a simple recipe!

  • Love, love how easy it is! Think I can make it in a lined muffin pan? Love pumpkin but I always scrape the pumpkin filling out and leave the crust!

  • I can't wait to try this. Only 5 ingredients? Yay!
