Our Easiest Pumpkin Pie Ever
We sent our Southern Living test kitchen on a mission to find the easiest, tastiest pumpkin pie recipe on the planet. And, boy, did they deliver. If the name alone didn’t convince you, we’ll happily brag on our easiest-ever version of traditional pumpkin pie.Using only seven ingredients, this pumpkin pie punches more than its weight in flavor. We went with a Southern staple, buttermilk, to give it creaminess and a tangy twist that can’t be beat, and we skipped the pumpkin spice for cinnamon and a touch of vanilla. The combination mellows into a perfect spiced pumpkin flavor that doesn’t overwhelm the senses. Since pumpkin pie is really all about the filling and, if so inclined, homemade whipped cream, we also slipped in a time-saving ingredient: refrigerated piecrust.Cooking for Thanksgiving is like running a marathon at full sprint. Casseroles, biscuits, turkey, gravy, and all those pies? This perfect pumpkin pie recipe doesn’t make it harder than it needs to be, and we guarantee that you and your family will love it.
