Crustless Pumpkin Pie Ingredients
- Pumpkin puree
- Evaporated milk
- Sugar - granulated sugar
- Sugar - packed light brown sugar
- Pumpkin pie spice
- Vanilla extract
- Whipped topping - optional
Before you reach for the can opener, make sure you’re using pumpkin puree for this recipe, and not canned pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin puree, sometimes labeled as 100% pumpkin, doesn’t contain any additional sugar, spices, or flavors that pumpkin pie filling does.
Serve your pumpkin pie cooled to room temperature or even chilled if desired. If you prefer your pie chilled you can prepare it a day or two ahead of time and then let it chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve. Just make sure to loosely cover it with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
If you want a bit of crunch to replace the bite from the crust, chopped candied pecans would make a delectable topping to your crustless pie. While whipped topping is a classic garnish for pumpkin pie, a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dusting of cinnamon would taste delicious as well.
