This is the best pumpkin pie I have ever tasted. It is rich, delicious and addictive! Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream to send it right over the top!

How to Make Maw Maw's Pumpkin Pie


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • 2With a hand mixer cream together cream cheese, brown sugar, spices, vanilla extract and melted butter.
  • 3Add 1 cup evaporated milk and 2 cups of canned pumpkin, mix thoroughly.
  • 4In a separate bowl whisk one whole egg and two egg yolks, then add to pumpkin mixture and beat thoroughly.
  • 5Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula and make sure that all ingredients are incorporated.
