How To Make Pumpkin Pie

Learn how to make pumpkin pie with recipes that Mrs. David's Garden Seeds® has used for years. Harvest your own pumpkins from the garden instead of a can. Canned pumpkin is easier and less messy but it is fun to harvest pumpkins and learn how pumpkin puree is made.

I have made many pies over the years. I have several recipes for pumpkin pie including cooking the filling on the stove, mixing baking mix with the pie filling and pouring into a crustless pan, and frozen pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin Pie Recipe 1

This is a family recipe that I have eaten since I was a little girl.

You will need:

  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 slightly beaten eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 pastry crust


Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Thoroughly combine pumpkin, sugar, salt, and spices in a large bowl. Add eggs, milk, and evaporated milk to the pumpkin mixture. Blend together.

Pour into a nine inch pastry lined pie pan.

Bake at 450 for ten minutes. Reduce temperature to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for another 45 minutes, or until mixture doesn't cling to a butter knife when inserted in the middle of the pie.
