Homemade Pie Crust
I know so many people shy away from making their own pie crust, I’ve done it. I’ve bought ready-made crusts in the past as well as ready-to-roll shortcrust pastry so that I could avoid it and now I feel cheated for all of those years.
This recipe for pumpkin pie uses the easiest pie crust recipe in the world – or so I think so.
There’s no rolling out we’re just going to use our trusty stand mixer and create the pie crust dough then press it into our pie tin. That’s how easy it’s going to be.
Easy Pumpkin Pie Filling
With the pie crust made so easily, we need to make sure that the filling is just the same! We don’t want to spend hours and hours slaving over it.
Instead, this pumpkin pie filling made with canned pumpkin, store-bought spice (or if you fancy making your own here’s our favourite pumpkin pie spice recipe), and the easiest way to make a pumpkin custard ever is perfect.
Once baked, and your house is smelling amazing, it’s just a case of letting it cool and chill, adding some whipped cream, and then serving to the family to enjoy for Thanksgiving dessert before sitting down to watch the football.
