November is here, which means that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Thanksgiving holds a place as one of my favorite holidays. The food, the family gathered around the table, remembering to be thankful (something that I need daily)… how can you not love it? In honor of Thanksgiving and all the yummy food we are going to be enjoying, I will be sharing one favorite Thanksgiving recipe of mine each week. The first recipe is a Thanksgiving must have: pumpkin pie.
I am a firm believer that some things aren’t worth the time, trouble, or money to be homemade… sometimes a cheater recipe is just as good. You can also do this recipe without a crust, in a pie pan to make it gluten free.
.frozen pie crust (or not if you are making it gluten free)
.15 oz. can of pumpkin
.14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
.1 tbsp of pumpkin pie spice
.1 tsp of sugar
LETS MAKE IT !
1.preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
2.Mix pumpkin, condensed milk, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, and sugar in a medium sized bowl.
3.Once ingredients have been mixed well, pour the mixture into the frozen pie crust. (or into the empty pie crust if you are trying the recipe gluten free.)
4.Put the pie in the oven and let it bake for 15 minutes.
5.After the pie has baked for 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and continue baking for 40 minutes.
6.Once the pie has browned slightly, allow it to cool on the counter or a cooling rack before serving. (& don’t forget the cool whip when you are ready to serve!)
Thanks for reading along. I hope that this pie finds it’s way to your table and can be enjoyed by all of your friends and family. Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be hard or expensive… just keep that in mind. Happy baking! Make sure to follow the blog to get updates on future posts!
