The Best Pumpkin Pie

I have used this recipe for years, only I bake it about 10 - 15 minutes longer than the recipe's directions. I think it makes the best pumpkin pie.

When you make this pie it brings back all the memories of my mother and grandmother making pies and the family dinners. Plus it is delicious.

This is the old standard my mother taught me when I was first learning to cook. It is so easy, I use this one for my grandchildren to learn on!

Thanksgiving Hit


I made 2 of these pies this year one for my husband to take to work and one for the inlaws. Both pies disappeared. It was easy to put together and delicious!

so rich and creamy

this pie is so rich and creamy. And it is so easy to make. I recommend this to all my friends that like to buy the pie already made.

I made this pie for Thanksgiving and wish I made two! It was so delicious, everyone just gobbled it up...there was barely enough to go around!

Libby's Homemade Pumpkin Pie

by D. Dee , JENNINGS, OK on Nov. 2004

This year for Thanksgiving, my sister and I cooked together. She is usually the one in the family that brings the pumpkin pies. Well, to my surprise she confessed that her "famous" pumpkin pies came from a bakery in the town where she lives. At the last minute, I had to come up with a recipe for pumpkin pie because I had never baked one either. (shame on me) The first thing I did was to get on line and go to this website. It just took a few minutes to find the perfect recipe. Everyone in the family commented on how good my sister's pies were this year. She is now sharing the "secret" recipe that she has had for years, because she finally has one. Thanks for the best pumpkin pie recipe ever!!!!!
