Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks with the people you love. So this year give them something they will make them really thankful - this pumpkin pie! Baking can seem like a scary task but we make the process as simple as possible and this pumpkin pie recipe can be made in 10 easy steps. This pie recipe is from the Rada Cutlery “Santa’s Favorite Holiday Treats & Christmas Sweets” cookbook.
For this recipe we used a store bought pie crust. But if you want to make the whole pie from scratch, you can use this simple pie crust recipe from All Recipes.
We suggest you try using our Stoneware Pie Plate for this recipe. It allows even-heating while your pie is baking and leaves you with a flaky golden brown crust.
What you will need:
- 1 – 15 ounce can pumpkin puree
- 1 - 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 egg whites
- 1 - 9 inch unbaked pie crust
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons butter, chilled
How to make pumpkin pie:
1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk and egg yolks. Then stir in 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt.
3. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until soft peaks form. A soft peak occurs when you lift the beater or utensil you are using out of the egg mixture the peaks curl over but still hold their shape. We used our Handi Stir to whip the eggs for our pie.
4. Gently fold into pumpkin mixture and then pour filling into pie crust. Folding in cooking terms means blending a lighter ingredient, in this case it is the eggs, with heavier ingredients, the pumpkin mixture by lifting underneath the mixture bringing the ingredients from the bottom to the top.
5. Bake for 15 minutes.
6. While the pie is baking you can begin preparing the streusel topping. In a small bowl combine the flour, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
7. Cut in the cold butter with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture is crumbly. Cutting something in cooking terms means working a solid shortening, the butter, into a dry mixture. The Rada Cutlery Food Chopper works really well for this task.
8. Sprinkle the topping over the pie.
9. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake for an additional 40 minutes or until the pie has set.
10. Allow the pie to cool then serve and enjoy. The Rada Cutlery Serrated Pie Server allows you to cut and serve the perfect pie slice everytime.
