Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Yesterday, I shared my recipe for perfect pie crust, here is how I make my perfect pumpkin pie. Are you ready for amazing? Get pumped! I love pumpkin pie. It is the perfect fall dessert. Personally, I stock up on the good organic canned pumpkin during the fall and make pumpkin pie year round, whenever I feel like it. What can I say, I’m a rebel! I made the pie below a few years ago when I was getting excited about my crust and had yet to learn about the not so great affects of food dyes…

The Perfect Pumpkin Pie.



1 pint organic whipping cream

1 can pure organic pumpkin puree

1 tsp salt

2 tsp organic cinnamon

2 tsp freshly grated organic ginger

1 tsp cloves

1/2 tsp Nutmeg


2 tsp organic pure vanilla extract

2/3 cup organic brown sugar


This is pretty much the easiest recipe. Pre-heat oven to 375. Combine all ingredients, in any order, in a medium sized bowl. Whisk until smooth. Pour into egg-glazed pie shell very carefully. Place pie in oven for approximately 45 minutes. Check it frequently by giving the pan a gentle shove. When the top is set and doesn’t jiggle like a liquid would, the pie is done! Remove immediately and leave on counter. Serve after allowing it to sit for at least 20 minutes. It’s hard to wait, especially since you know this pie isn’t going to last long!

I like to top mine off with a little whipped cream to which I add a teaspoon of cinnamon, a teaspoon of vanilla, and a tablespoon of brown sugar. It’s even more delicious!
