  • 1 pie crust store bought or homemade
  • 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 12 oz can evaporated milk
  • whipped cream for garnish, optional
  • sprinkle of ground cinnamon for garnish, optional


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.  Add pie crust to pie plan and refrigerate until ready to use.


  • In a mixing bowl, add pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Whisk until combined.
  • Whisk in cinnamon, salt, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and evaporated milk.


  • Pour mixture into prepared pie crust.  Cover pie crust rim with a pie crust shield, or use foil to create one.
  • Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes, then leave pie in the oven and reduce oven temperature to 350°F and continue baking another 40-50 minutes.  The very center of the pie should still be a little wobbly, like jello.


  • Cool pie in pan on wire rack for 2-3 hours, or until completely cool. 
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate.
  • Serve with a dollop of whipped cream that’s sprinkled with a bit of ground cinnamon if desired.
