  • 1 9-inch unbaked pie crust, store-bought or homemade
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin puree
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Roll out the pie crust dough into a large circle and place it into a 9" deep-dish pie plate, cutting away any excess crust.
  • Flute or crimp edges (if desired) and place in refrigerator.
  • In a large bowl combine the pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the pumpkin mixture into the crust. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, keeping the oven door closed, reduce the temperature to 350°F and bake 35-40 more minutes, or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
  • Transfer the pie to a cooling rack. Let the pie come to room temperature before cutting and serving.
  • Serve cold with whipped topping.
