Pumpkin Pie - it just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it. I started using this Cook's Illustrated recipe for my Thanksgiving pies 3 years ago and I'll never go back to my old recipe again. Homemade pumpkin pie is easy to make and a delicious way to complete your Thanksgiving meal.
1 can pumpkin 1 cup heavy cream
1 cup canned yams, drained 1 cup whole milk
¾ cup sugar 3 eggs + 2 yolks
¼ maple syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons ginger
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
Pour into warm pie shell.
Bake 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 300 and bake an additional 20 – 35 minutes.
I have no pictures of this pie sliced or even topped with whipped cream because as soon as my pie had cooled, I put it straight into my freezer to save for Thanksgiving. (I love make ahead Thanksgiving desserts.)
