What's Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie? Everyone's favorite fall dessert is the most requested Thanksgiving staple, says Rita Heikenfeld. 

Rita says you can make this pumpkin pie a day or two ahead. Let it completely cool before putting in the refrigerator. 

What you'll need:

  • 1 can, 15 oz, pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 can, 12 oz, evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2-3  teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Several dashes salt
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • Whipped cream for garnish


Whisk pumpkin, milk, sugar and spices together. Taste and add more pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon if you want. Add salt and eggs and blend.

Pour into pastry-lined pan. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes; lower temperature to 350 and bake 30-35 minutes or until set.

Serves 8. Serve with whipped cream,
