Easy Pumpkin Pie

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! I can smell the stuffing and roasted Turkey already. Getting together and celebrating Thanksgiving has always been a special occasion in our house. My grandma would always host Thanksgiving and boy did she do it right! Her stuffing was out of this world and there was always plenty of Turkey to go around but her Pumpkin Pie was what really stood out.

Pumpkin Pie is essential on Thanksgiving. It is almost as important as the Turkey in our house. I love homemade Pumpkin Pie. No store bought kind for me! If you are coming to our house for Thanksgiving, you will find that none of our dishes are store bought, especially the Pumpkin Pie.

Pumpkin Pie isn’t as hard as you might think. In fact, it’s really simple to make. I always use Judy Kim’s Vodka Pie Crust because it’s the most scrumptious pie crust and it’s so easy to make. Again, we don’t like to use store bought crust but if you don’t have the time to make the crust, there is no judgment here! I know all too well that the holidays can be stressful and time is of the essence when you have family to entertain AND feed!

But one big advantage of making your own pie crust is that you can use the extra dough to make cute leaf cutouts! I got these leaf cutouts on Amazon and they worked perfectly plus they can be used to make cookies and other delicious treats. I always get so many compliments on those little leafs and it’s such an easy way to take your Pumpkin Pie to the next level. I also used my William Sonoma pie pan that says “Baked With Love” on the bottom. It’s my go-to pie pan!

Easy Pumpkin Pie!





  1. Pumpkin pie is a definite favorite in our house. I make one every year for Thanksgiving and everyone always loves it 🙂

  2. Pumpkin pie a must at our house! I’m not even sure why we only have it during Thanksgiving, it’s easy enough to make all year long. Love the cutouts from the dough. Super cute!

  3. Amazing pumpkin pie, I haven’t yet baked one , but looking at this pie, I’m sure I’ll bake it this weekend itself. It seems delicious.

  4. Oh my gosh! Look at those little leaves! Gotta admit, way better than just a store-bought crust because it gives it so much character!!! Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie and since I’m going to a friend’s house this year instead of going back to Tennessee to be with my family, I’ve bookmarked this so I can make it! Great post…and love the pictures!

  5. I have never seen such cute cut outs used for decorating the edges of a baked pie! So creative and looks beautiful in the photo.

  10. OMG that looks so beautiful! I’ve only ever made a couple pies in my life because making crust is scary, but maybe I should be giving pre-made a shot. Though even so I doubt my cut-outs will look as cute as yours because those kinds of efforts on my part always lead to an inevitable #pinterestfail. LOL
