The Best Shortcut Pumpkin Pie Recipe!
Pumpkin pie, apple pie, custard pie, and chocolate cream pie; I am surprised I haven’t turned into a piece of pie yet! I guess you could certainly say that I have been on a fresh-baked pie kick lately. I have been trying to work on making my pies a heck of a lot neater looking, and it is a slow process but I am getting there! This latest shortcut pumpkin pie recipe was doubled, but I’d love to share it with you today.
Soon, Halloween will be just another day past and you all are gonna want to head to the kitchen for some holiday baking. You might even want to turn those cute little porch pumpkins into pie. I recently made some fresh pumpkin pies from my son’s pumpkin (a whole other story), but this recipe is a shortcut one so it is much easier!
I like to call this The Best Shortcut Pumpkin Pie Recipe because I used pre-made dough, and canned milk and pumpkin. I am not big on canned goods, but for pumpkin pies I make an exception. I love this recipe because you only need sweetened condensed milk, canned pumpkin, eggs, pre-made dough and pumpkin pie spice-easy enough? Plus, this time of year is perfect for getting these ingredients on sale!
My husband loves pumpkin pie so much so I like to make one every week because it really isn’t hard. I whip up the ingredients so fast, crimp my pre-made pie shell, and then make some foil strips to protect the crust from burning. Pie shields are an important part of pie making because without them the outer crust can easily burn if it is exposed to the heat too long. We all know some pie fillings take longer than others so this ensures a deep golden brown crust but not a burnt one.

- 15 ounces of canned pumpkin
