I’m also sharing an exclusive recipe for crustless pumpkin pie below! I hate calling it a crustless pumpkin pie because I could argue that the crust is the best part of the pie, but I know you will enjoy it either way! You can even make a face on it with fun fruit toppings and pumpkin seeds. Bonus points if you have a pumpkin mold that you can bake it in! Pssst….here is where I bought mine in the picture! And yes, pumpkin pie whipped cream is a new product for Whole Foods this year, and you better believe I had to buy some to try on this pie!

If you’re already thinking about something to bring to Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving, this dessert is low maintenance enough for you to get away with making a couple hours before the party, but fancy enough for people to complement your cooking skills. I totally get that not everyone loves pumpkin pie, but hey maybe it’s worth making them try a piece of this anyway?!

Easy Crustless Pumpkin Pie

  • Author: Maggie Michalczyk, RDN
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes

Description

This easy crustless pie is a low maintenance version of pumpkin pie that is sure to still impress. If you bake it in a pumpkin mold, get festive by giving it a face with in season, apples and figs!


Ingredients

  • 15-oz can pumpkin purée
  • 12-oz can evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • large eggs
  • Whipped cream for serving (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Mix sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger, and cloves in a small bowl.
  3. Beat eggs in a large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.
  4. Pour into glass or ceramic baking dish. A good thing to know is that you can fill a baking dish deeper than a pie crust, but it’s best not to exceed a depth of about 1 1/2 inches. Baking times vary with depth, size, and type of baking dish, so keep an eye on it.
  5. Bake until knife inserted near the center comes out clean about 20 minutes depending on the dish.
  6. Let cool, and refrigerate until ready to serve. Add a face and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
