  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Place pie crust on large foil-lined baking sheet.

  • Mix pumpkin, milk, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice in large bowl until smooth. Pour into crust.

  • Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Bake 40 minutes longer or until knife inserted 1 inch from crust comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack. Serve with Vanilla Whipped Cream, if desired.

Cooking tip

Serving Suggestion: Serve pumpkin pie with a dollop of Vanilla Whipped Cream.

Test Kitchen Tips:
• Place the frozen pie crust in its pie pan on a baking sheet before pouring in the pumpkin filling. This is to catch any spills while transporting to the oven or while baking.
• For an extra helping of holiday spice flavor, prepare pie with our Cinnamon Pie Crust.

Substitution Tip: Use 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Ground Cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Ginger, 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Cloves in place of the Pumpkin Pie Spice.

    This is a classic Pumpkin Pie Recipe....very easy to make. I would add a bit of Vanilla as well. May wish to add some pecans or walnuts over the crust before filling it ...for a bit of a crunch.

    This is an easy recipe that is virtually foolproof. My father, who is not a pumpkin pie fan, loves this pie! I highly recommend making the vanilla whipped cream as an accompaniment. It takes only minutes and puts canned whipped creams to shame.

    This is a delicious recipe - family favorite. Add a little extra pumpkin pie spice to add some zip.

    This was a nice pumpkin pie, however I added a little corn starch to make it thick as a store bought pie would be. In my opinion home made pumpkin pies tend to be a little softer or runny. I would like it to be a little sweeter. I made this one and the classic recipe. this one was easier to make but the classic recipe tasted better to me. (I added corn starch to both recipes to keep them thick) all in all I enjoyed the pie :)

    I beat the egg whites till nice and foamy and add them back in, then I add karo or molasses, some flour to thicken it up, and evaporated milk. makes an old fashion pumpkin pie. Spices I use separately like cinnamon, ground cloves, ground ginger, and ground nutmeg.
