There is a lot to be grateful for when fall rolls around. There is Thanksgiving, of course, but there’s also the cool, crisp weather, the changing colours and cozy clothes that come with this special season. Fall is also pumpkin pie season! Timbercreek Communities wants to help you savour the sweet and spicy flavour of fall with the best pumpkin pie recipes. Dig in!
Perfect Pumpkin Pie
This Perfect Pumpkin Pie recipe is aptly named. Pumpkin pie can be tricky to make. The crust can easily be too soggy, or too dense, and the custard filling can be too gooey, or too spicy. This pie has a light and flaky crust and a perfectly spiced filling that won’t crack when it cools. This tutorial will walk you through each and every step -- with lots of pictures to make the process as easy as pie.
Pumpkin Cream Pie
You don’t have to make plain old pumpkin pie. Mix it up this season and try this Pumpkin Cream Pie. It has all the gentle spice and flavour you’re craving, with a light and lovely cream pie filling. Best of all, it’s easy to make. It requires only 30 minutes of hands-on prep time. The gingersnap cookie crust requires less than 10 minutes of baking, and the filling requires no baking at all - just let it set in the fridge for a few hours.
Pumpkin Pie with Oreo Crust
This Pumpkin Pie with Oreo Crust is a sweet twist on the tradition that will be adored by children and adults alike. Your kids will love to help you make it because they will get to crush a bag of Oreos with a rolling pin. Who doesn’t want to do that? Then all you do is pour melted butter into the bag and smoosh it around to make the crust. Fun and easy!
Chai Spice Pumpkin Pie
Put a spicy twist on tradition when you whip up this Chai Spice Pumpkin Pie. You can choose to make the Foolproof Butter Crust from scratch, or save some time with store-bought. For the filling, combine pumpkin puree, condensed milk, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla chai spices (cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, clove, nutmeg and black pepper). Beat until smooth and pour into the crust. It needs about an hour to bake and another hour to cool and set. It’s well worth the wait.
