Before you do anything else, you’ll want to preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, while you’re waiting for the oven to heat up, you can do everything else. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and whisk it all together. The mixture should be smooth and spreadable.
When you’re done mixing, put everything into your pie crust, making sure it’s all spread evenly. Now, you’re ready to put your pie into the oven. Bake it for 15 minutes. Then you should reduce your oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and continue to bake your pie for 35 to 40 minutes. Be sure to check on it every once in a while.
When you take your pie out of the oven, you should let it cool before you do anything else. When it’s cooled, you can then add any kind of garnish you may want on top. Ice cream or whipped cream, anyone?
Now that you know how to make the perfect pumpkin pie to share with family and friends, you can throw this together anytime you want. Everyone you share with is sure to be extremely grateful. Just watch out – they might sneak an extra piece.
