Homemade Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Wednesday, November 28, 2018
Homemade fresh pumpkin pies are special, very special.


It's not every day I like to spend my entire day preparing for a holiday, but when it's a holiday, it must be done right, at least in our family.


Pumpkin pie is always made from fresh sugar pie pumpkins.


Every year we anticipate the arrival of those fresh little pie pumpkins and can't wait to dive into the best tasting fresh pumpkin made pie along with mom's pie crust.


Sure it's a little work but the end results are fabulous in comparison to store-bought bar none!


It's really not that difficult, getting the pumpkin cooked is the first order of business and I do mine in a slow cooker overnight in water.


I will tell you a little more about that below or just click here.


During the year, I even keep some puree in the freezer so I can make other pumpkins treat like pumpkin zucchini spice bars or oatmeal pumpkin bars that the kids and family just adore!


If you really love other kinds of pie, try my Apple Pie, Cannoli Pie, and delicious Marble Cream Pie.


If you would just like the recipe to this homemade fresh pumpkin pie just scroll down to the recipe card and print it off.





















Pumpkin Spice and More Pumpkin



There are so many recipes for pumpkin pie.


I love the taste of pumpkin therefore, our recipe isn't overpowering with spice.


If you love a lot or less you can adapt this recipe any way you like it.


We are more cinnamon lovers than ginger and cloves or nutmeg.


I actually love the color of this pie without weighing it down with all those dark spices.


A little goes a long way for me.


This pie is easy to make and just right in my opinion.

Mom and Her Pumpkin Pies



Mom always cut up her pumpkin, cleaned it boiled it and then mashed it.


Nope, not this girl I found the easiest way was to add the whole pumpkin to a slow cooker in water and let it roast overnight.


You will wake up to an ugly looking black pumpkin that has the sweetest pulp ever inside!


Easy, no fuss, no cutting and now we are ready to make a pie!









Fall Desserts



What better way to kick off fall than with a delicious pumpkin treat.


If you do decide to buy a pumpkin and roast it or slow cook it, there are plenty of recipes below you can make with it.


Not a pumpkin lover?


That's ok try some of my other pie desserts by clicking here.










Nothing Better Than Homemade



The freshly made puree is the best, however, this recipe can be made with canned pumpkin.


Whatever your schedule allows, this pumpkin pie tastes great either way.


Making your own over canned is a fresher taste and brighter in color.


I freeze the rest in little freezer bags and use it all year long for the recipe link shared below.

A Special Treat



You can make homemade pie crust or use a deep dish frozen store-bought.


The pie crust homemade is delicious and my grandma and mom's recipe.

I like to use a leaf cutter to make a pretty edge around my pies.

Easy Custard



I love how mixing all the ingredients, pour it in the crust, becomes a thick dense delicious custard.


You can add more or fewer spices in it.


We love cinnamon, many others love more nutmeg, you can adjust this recipe however you like in flavor.

Make Your Own Puree So Simple!




I always buy sugar pie pumpkins, they are small pumpkins that fit right in a slow cooker and the puree is done the next morning overnight.



I also love to roast it in the oven, that takes just a few hours and the puree is perfect.



Either method works great!



Don't forget to save the seeds from your pumpkin, to make homemade pumpkin seeds.










A Little Extra Work




I always love to make Holiday time special, that's why I always make out traditional homemade freshly baked pumpkin pie from scratch.



Although when I was working full time, I never had a lot of time to prepare everything from scratch working on Thanksgiving.



If I had to do anything semi-homemade it was always the crust, not the filling.



I always found time to make homemade pumpkin puree in the slow cooker for this fresh Pumpkin pie.

  4. There is nothing like homemade and that includes getting the pumpkin fresh from the Farmer's Market. And making a tried and true recipe that came to us from our loved ones keeps the tradition going. That's what makes holidays with their meals so special.

  10. What would the holidays be without pumpkin pie. But I haven't tried it with real pumpkin so I think I've been cheating my family and guests. This is certainly going to be on my bucket list to make. Pumpkin pie from scratch. No Cheating!!
