The Perfect Pumpkin Pie

That’s a big statement.

The “perfect” pumpkin pie.

But this is it.

It’s a combination of dense and fluffy all at the same time. It just melts in your mouth. The spices are a perfect match to the pumpkin. Topped with a dollop of whipped cream, and it’s the symbol of Thanksgiving.

Your mother-in-law will be jealous she didn’t think to make it first.

Here is the line up of ingredients needed:

Don’t forget to make the perfect crust too!

Put all the ingredients except the eggs into a bowl and beat until combined. Add the eggs one at a time and beat an additional 3 minutes so the mix is light and fluffy looking.

Pour into your pie crust..

Place the pie onto a baking sheet just in case you have a spill over.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes then reduce the heat to 350 and bake for another 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature.

Once it’s cooled, make a batch of whipped cream, and dig in!

Seriously, it is the best pumpkin pie you’ll ever taste.

I tasted about half of the pie, and I am pretty sure anyone else you was able to snag a bite would agree.

    Looks pretty perfect to me! I can't wait for Thanksgiving to have some. Every time I see pumpkin pie I think of a magazine ad where the pie is labeled with names. There is one that says "Mom's little slice" then another one that says "Mom's one more little slice" Hilarious. That is so my family!
