Pumpkin pie is a classic dessert to make for Thanksgiving. Nothing says fall and Thanksgiving quite like pumpkin pie and in our house it is not really the holidays without at least one pumpkin pie.
Over the years I have made many pumpkin pies, but this Easy Pumpkin Pie is my new favorite. I really think it is the best pumpkin pie I have made.
I was recently looking through the Sunday coupons and saw a coupon for sweetened condensed milk. Well, I love and use a lot of sweetened condensed milk, especially during the holidays, so the coupon caught my attention.
And on the same page as the coupon was a delicious looking pumpkin pie and a recipe. The recipe caught my attention, because it was a baked pie that contained sweetened condensed milk. I have made many pumpkin pies that contained evaporated milk, but I had never made a baked pumpkin pie that contained sweetened condensed milk.
Well, I knew right away that this was not a recipe I could wait until Thanksgiving to make, especially since it had been over two years since I had pumpkin pie.
So, I set to work making this pie last week and we loved it. The texture was silky smooth and perfect. And I admit that I might just have eaten a couple of pieces in one day. Okay, so I ate three pieces in one day, but it really had been two years since I had a pumpkin pie and this one was so good.
This will definitely be on our Thanksgiving table this year.
Now, this pumpkin pie may not be new to many of you, but some how I have missed this pie recipe. Have any of you made a baked pumpkin pie with sweetened condensed milk before?
