Pumpkin Pie Recipe (Made with Real Fresh Pumpkin)

Pumpkin Pie Recipe (Made with Real Fresh Pumpkin)

Indulge in the warm and comforting flavors of fall with my Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe - a single crust pumpkin pie made with fresh pumpkin puree, ice cream, eggs, sugar, and spices.

What makes this delightful dessert different is that it’s made with real pumpkin, transformed into a homemade pumpkin puree that's rich and velvety. No need for store-bought crusts here; I'm guiding you through making your very own buttery flaky pie crust from scratch.

Using a potato masher, I create a luscious pumpkin filling that's bursting with the essence of fresh pumpkin. And here's the twist: instead of the traditional evaporated or sweetened condensed milk, I'm taking a creamy route with vanilla ice cream. This unique choice elevates the pie to a whole new level of indulgence.

No more relying on pre-packaged options when you can craft delicious homemade pies right in your kitchen.

Forget about the hassle of hunting for different brands of pumpkin puree at the grocery store; with my easy recipe, you'll be savoring the real deal in no time. So, grab a small pie pumpkin, follow these simple steps, and next time you're craving a slice of homemade goodness, you'll know how to whip up a delicious pumpkin pie.

2. Wash and halve pumpkin, remove the seeds. Peel it and cut the flesh into small cubes. Place pumpkin pieces in a pot, cover with water and boil for about 20 minutes, or until tender. (Optionally, halve it, place cut side down and bake in oven at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for about 1 1/2 hours, or until tender. Let the roasted pumpkin cool a little then scrape the pumpkin flesh from the peel). Mash cooked pumpkin (I use potato masher).
