  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Take the refrigerated pie crust and spread it carefully onto the pie mold. To give it the 'homemade' touch, tuck the spillover dough inside and flute the edges.
  • Once set as desired, cover the sheet with parchment paper and pie weights. Place it in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes, or lesser if you desire a more chewy consistency. 
  • Once done, remove the weights and the paper and set aside to cool. While the crust is cooling, prepare the pumpkin filling for the pie.
  • Add the canned pumpkin, brown sugar, and eggs to a bowl and start mixing them together.
  • To this mixture, add the rest of the ingredients and bring them together by mixing.
  • Pour this into the pie crust and spread it evenly.
  • Preheat oven to 325° F and set the pie in the middle of the oven for about 40-50 minutes.
  • To check the doneness of the pie, make sure it is a bit jelly-like at the center when you are taking it out.
  • Let it cool. Top with whipped cream, if desired.

This recipe is meant to ease your pie troubles. If you are not a fan of store-bought crust dough or canned pumpkin, it is absolutely fine to make your own dough or use fresh pumpkin mash instead.
