Today we’re making the most delicious fall recipe that will be an instant classic you won’t want to skip for your holiday table. Don’t forget to make these pie crust cookies to top your pie!

Homemade pie is really simple to make, this pumpkin pie is not made entirely from scratch though, we’ll be using a ready made pie crust and that takes a lot of the work and time out of making a baked pie!

If you like to make your own crust this recipe is great but a store-bought crust is perfectly fine for this recipe as well.

Should I bake a pie crust before filling it?

A lot of recipes call for blind baking, which is the process by which you bake a pie crust before you add any filling.

Baking the pie crust before you fill it helps to make sure that it actually gets baked. That means it’ll be flaky, delicious, and not gooey or floury.

All of those no bake pie recipes? They definitely need to have the pie crust baked before the filling goes in!

For this recipe you don’t need to blind bake the crust, if you want to you can pre bake it a bit but it’s not required for a good end result.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this baked pumpkin pie:

This recipe uses a pre-made pie crust, white sugar, pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, and salt!

There’s nothing much in this recipe because it’s an easy and simple classic. When it comes to the classics there’s really nothing you want to change up.

Using these simple ingredients might seem understated but they come together to make a spot on final product that everyone will devour.

Kitchen essentials for tasty desserts and baking:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are great for all kinds of baking and not just cookies! My husband loves them for making biscuits, pizzas, and more!

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!
