Grandma Rose's Carrot Pie

Karla Everett


My Grandma use to make this every Thanksgiving and Christmas and now every since she passed years ago I've been the one to make it in my family. This pie is a lot like pumpkin pie (which i don't really like )but not it's not so rich. You will never no its made from carrots.

How to Make Grandma Rose's Carrot Pie


  1. To make carrot pulp : Peel and slice 3-4 lb. of carrots ;
    (I have used the baby carrots and don't have to peel or slice )
    put carrots in a kettle with enough water to just be level with the carrots ; Add 2 Teas. baking soda ; it prevents too much foaming when cooking.
  2. Boil carrots until tender ; Drain.
  3. Run carrots through a food sieve (cone) to make the pulp. This will remove any bad pulp you don't want ; like missed peel and the stringy texture in the carrots.
  4. Mix up all the above ingredients in a large bowl.
  5. Pour into a prepared raw pie crust.
  6. Bake on center rack in a pre-heated oven @ 350 deg. for 45-60 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean when inserted in the center . Cooking time varies depending on your oven.
    Let pie completely cool before serving.
  7. Note: I double this recipe and get 3 pies when using 9" deep dish frozen pie crusts. I cooked up 15 pounds of baby carrots and got 12 pies out of all the pulp.
