Love pumpkin spice? If you love that pumpkin pie flavor, make your own pumpkin pie spice to keep on hand!
"When I first decided to make my own pumpkin pie spice it was out of necessity. We are pumpkin pie maniacs in the Fall and were constantly running out of the spice. One very late night when I was making cookies I realized I needed pumpkin pie spice and we were OUT...and I did not want to go to the store! Then it hit me - I bet I have all the ingredients to make my own...and I did! Now, I can adjust my flavors to our family's tastes!
It's so easy to combine spices in your pantry and create your own pumpkin pie spice!" -Holly Lefevre, 504 Main
Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe
How to Make a Pumpkin Pie
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; beat well. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.
- Place pie crust on baking sheet. Pour filling in pie crust and place in the oven. (You may have extra pumpkin pie filling. If so, you can make mini pumpkin pies.)
- Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for an additional 40 to 50 minutes, or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.
- Cool on rack. Chill if desired.
Pumpkin Pie Tips + Bonus Steps for Making a Pumpkin Pie
Pre-bake your crust for a few minutes before adding your filling.
Process a fresh pumpkin for your filling.
Why should you process fresh pumpkin?
"Preserving pumpkin pulp over the winter is quite a tradition. My family is crazy about pumpkin recipes, we enjoy them all year round and we hate seeing those beautiful pumpkins we use at Halloween go to waste once fall is over. And what better way to enjoy their benefits than freezing pumpkin pulp in individual packets over the winter? Perfect way to preserve their quality and taste!"
- Petro Neagu, Creative Homemaking
Strain your fresh pumpkin puree so you don't have a soggy pie before making your filling.
Always wait for your oven to preheat before baking so your dessert will cook evenly.
Mend any broken spots in the crust by getting it a little wet to soften it and molding it back together.
Remove your pie from the oven before it is fully set to avoid cracks in your filling. The pie will set up as it continues to cook outside the oven.
Serve with whipped cream! (Learn how to make your own whipped cream!)

My favorite pumpkin recipe (besides the classic pie with a TON of whipped cream) is pumpkin donuts or pumpkin cupcakes. Give me all of the pumpkin baked goods.

I have never thought to make pumpkin donuts or pumpkin cupcakes but I will be adding this to my list this year. I also love pumpkin baked goods and can not wait for them each holiday. I make a pumpkin pie and bread each year for the holidays and they are always a hit.Do you have a recipe for the donuts? Would love to make some.
