How to Make Homemade Pumpkin Pie (Top Tips)
- There’s no need to blind bake the pie crust first, just add the filling to the raw pastry.
- Feel free to crimp the edges or make a pretty pattern around the pie.
- Make sure to let the pie rest for 5 minutes before slicing. The knife should come out clean.
- You can serve the pie hot, cold or at room temperature.
- Leftover pie will store well in the fridge for 3-4 days or can be frozen.
- Serve with whipped cream sprinkled with cinnamon or vanilla ice cream.
Should you refrigerate pumpkin pie?
Yes! Pumpkin pie needs to be refrigerated after baking. Let it cool before storing it in the refrigerator (don’t move it straight from the oven to the fridge!), but leftovers should always be refrigerated. It will keep for 3-4 days.
How do you know when a pumpkin pie is done?
It’s possible to overcook pumpkin pies; this could result in a cracked or watery filling. I’ve tested this recipe to make sure the temperature and cook time is just right. You want the center of your pie to be a little bit jiggly when you take it out of the oven, because it will set and firm up as it cools. After 5-10 minutes of rest time, insert a knife into the center of the pie, and it should come out clean.
Now that you know how to make pumpkin pie at home, you can impress your guests with this amazing homemade pumpkin pie recipe. You can boast that you made it all yourself! This pie is a MUST for Thanksgiving, but it’s such a nice treat for any occasion throughout the fall season. Happy Holidays!
