I needed a great tasting, quick and easy pumpkin pie recipe that I could customize to accommodate family members with specific dietary requirements (i.e. dairy and gluten-free,) so this is what I came up with. Don't be afraid to try new combinations of ingredients to meet your taste and needs. You can try sugar free or low-fat combinations, or even a chocolate graham cracker crust. I used a gluten-free graham cracker crust and extra creamy oat milk and everyone loved it! I hope this quick & easy, no-bake dish will become a new Go-To recipe for you, too!

How To Make thrice spice pumpkin pie

  • Milk, Instant Pudding & 3 Spices
    1
    Into large bowl, add milk, instant pudding mix and 3 spices.
  • Add Pumpkin to Blended Spice & Pudding Mixture
    2
    Mix completely using either mixer on low (about 20 seconds) or whisk by hand (about 1 minute.)
  • Blended Pumpkin & Spice Mixture
    3
    Next, add the pumpkin and mix until blended with previous mixture.
  • Add Cool Whip to Pumpkin & Spice Mixture, then FOLD until no streaks are present.
    4
    Using scraper spatula, add Cool Whip to bowl, folding together only until no streaks of pumpkin or Cool Whip are showing. At this step, it is important NOT TO STIR, ONLY FOLD. Stirring breaks down the topping and makes your pie flat instead of fluffy.
  • Finished pie before plastic dome cover added.
    5
    Using scraper spatula, add pumpkin mixture to the graham cracker crust. You can use the scraper to make swirls or smooth evenly across the top of the pie.
  • 6
    Refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours to fully set.
  • 7
    Decorate top of pie before serving with additional whipped topping (spray can or tub, extra-creamy, sugar-free, low-fat, etc.)
  • Thrice Spice Pumpkin Pie after inverted dome cover attached.

    TIP - Save plastic cover from pie crust. Remove label and glue dots, then wash and dry completely. Invert plastic lid and add to pie so it will act as a dome to protect your pie.
