Recipe

Ingredients

15-oz pumpkin pie filling
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
12-oz can evaporated milk
2 homemade pie crusts
2 pie plates

all the ingredients to make pumpkin pie

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, making sure the racks are also in the middle position.
2. Firstly, place the rolled-out pie crust into pie plates, then set aside.
This recipe is for two pumpkin pies, so make sure to have two pie plates and two crusts.
For my recipe for a homemade pie crust, click the link below, however, using pre-made pie crusts work just the same.

3. Secondly, into a medium bowl, add 15-ounces, or one entire can, of pure pumpkin.
Make sure to use “Pure Pumpkin” and not anything that already has seasonings or spices.

4. Add 2 eggs and then beat them lightly with the pumpkin puree.

5. To the pumpkin, add 3/4 cup sugar and then whisk well until you can no longer feel the sugar granules, around 1 minute.

6. Then add the 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the pumpkin, mixing well.
If you have a dehydrator, try making your own ground ginger! For that recipe, click the link below!
From scratch ground ginger has so much more flavor and tastes way better than any store-bought jars.

7. Next, pour the pumpkin pie ingredients equally into the two prepared crusts as this recipe can make two pies.

8. Using a basting brush, brush 1 egg that has been beaten over the crust and edges.
Even if you choose to use pre-made crust, do not skip this step as it helps to give pie crust that truly homemade look.

Bake the Pumpkin Pies

9. Place the Pumpkin Pie into the preheated oven and then bake for 15 minutes.
If you have a pie crust shield, this is when to use it. The first round of baking can really brown the crust causing it to be too cooked later. By using a pie crust shield, you then help the crust to not brown too fast.

10. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and then cook for an additional 50-55 minutes without the pie crust shield, or until a knife inserted comes out clean.

I have not always had the skills to cook and bake from scratch. As a young wife, I bought every meal frozen or boxed and presented it to my husband with a flourish, believing myself a decadent cook. As our budget shrunk, and our family grew, I looked for ways to stretch our money to nourish our kids with the best for their hungry appetites. Hoping to find recipes and meals that they would love to eat. Through the last 5 years, I have learned so many cooking and baking lessons, and experienced many wins and failures. Come along with me on this journey as I share my recipes that work, how to make them on the cheap, and my tips and tricks to get my kids to eat homemade deliciousness! I will also share updates to our house that we have done in the last year since our move. With one income, we do most of the work ourselves and with amazing family and friends to help out, cutting costs but keeping style and money in the bank! I am a wife and mother of 3 boys and 1 princess. When I was a kid, I remember being asked what I wanted to be or do when I grew up. My response was, "a mom", and I am proud to grow up and be a mom to 4 amazing kids! Samuel is 11, Matthew is 8, Levi is 4, and Elliana is almost 2. We have been blessed to have kids who love to explore foods, to try new recipes, and enjoy helping us around the house. With 4 kids, you better believe they help clean! My husband Tyler and I have been married almost 13 years. We love our kids, we love outdoors, camping, canoeing, grilling, watching movies, and just hanging out making memories. A few years ago I gifted Tyler with his own "menu" book, where we write meals and foods we have loved to eat. Weekly our family decides what our meals will be and I make up a grocery list with what we need. It literally is my favorite chore! I love to shop, so shopping for food on a budget is my biggest win! Thank you for taking the time and visiting my site, Subscribe so you do not miss a post! Keep coming back to hear about new recipes, updates on our home, fun times with our kids, and how to make homemade deliciousness! ~Monica
