Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie

Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie is everything it’s cracked up to be. It’s an old-fashioned and absolutely delicious way to make Pumpkin Pie with all the spices that make it so delicious. This makes a fabulous dessert pie for Thanksgiving or Christmas, obviously, but if you enjoy pumpkin there’s no reason why you can’t make Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie any time of the year now that canned pumpkin is available all year round. I always make this in a Homemade Pie Crust, but if you’re not proficient in making pie crusts, then you can always use a store bought pie shell.

Believe it or not, this is not even my Mom’s Pumpkin Pie recipe. It’s my sister’s! I used to make Mom’s Pumpkin Pie recipe all the time for Thanksgiving dinners, but last year my sister asked me to help in the kitchen and she wanted me to whip up this pie. Phillis only used the basic amount of spices, but I added a little bit of each one to amp up the spices a little more. I cut out fall leaves from the pie dough for that pie last year. I looked everywhere and couldn’t find any cookie cutters like that. The best I could do was a cookie cutter with pumpkins so that’s what I used. Even so, I had SO MANY pieces of that pie last year! I knew that I would have to make it the next time I decided to make Pumpkin Pie.

Well, that opportunity came the second week of December when our son flew in from Pennsylvania for a few days. I made up his favorite Custard Pie, a Coconut Custard Pie and this Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie. (Yes, I STILL spoil my kids). Our son spent half his time with us and half with his brother, so we had plenty of opportunities to eat pie over those few days. And eat pie we did!

If you’re looking for the most scrumptious pie to make during the holidays, I recommend Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie. Everyone loves it. The filling can be mixed up in under 10 minutes, and if you’re used to making pie crust the whole pie can be whipped up in a half hour or even less. We like our Pumpkin Pie served with ice cream or Cool Whip. But this pie is perfectly delicious plain as well. If you love pumpkin, give this pie a try at your first opportunity. But be warned, if you’re not careful, you may eat more than a couple of slices, too. 🙂
