Classic Pumpkin Pie Recipe | South Wake Raleigh Moms

Kate McDermott, author of Art of the Pie, was a finalist for the prestigious James Beard award for chefs. She’s also mom to Duncan, 32, who started baking with her as a toddler. This classic pumpkin pie is a family favorite for Thanksgiving. Her secret, expert tip? It should have a slight jiggle in the middle which will set as it cools.

Pumpkin Pie

Makes one 9-inch shallow pie

Ingredients

1 recipe single-crust pie dough
3 eggs, lightly beaten
One 15-ounce can (about 2 cups or 425 grams) pumpkin
1 cup canned lite coconut milk or evaporated milk
¾ cup (150 grams) sugar (equal parts white and packed brown sugar)
½ teaspoon (3 grams) salt
1 teaspoon (2 grams) cinnamon
1 teaspoon (2 grams) ginger
¼ teaspoon (.25 gram) freshly ground nutmeg
A tiny pinch of ground clove

Procedure

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Roll out a pie shell and place it in a pie pan. Trim excess dough from the edges and crimp.
  3. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl until they are light-colored and fluffy. Stir in the pumpkin, coconut milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and clove until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  4. Pour the filling into the pan. Place the pie in the oven and turn down immediately to 375°F. Bake for approximately 50 minutes.
  5. Remove the pie from the oven and set on a rack to cool completely.
