8 Amazing Pumpkin Pie Recipes To Make This Autumn

We’re starting to reach the season in which pumpkin spice takes over every shelf in the supermarket. Everywhere you turn, you’ll find some kind of pumpkin spice flavored food or drink – from lattes to Oreos to cereal and even Pringles! But let’s remember where this delicious and autumnal flavor combination first started – the pumpkin pie. No fall holiday dinner is complete without one, so here are eight amazing pumpkin pie recipes that you have to make this autumn!

1. Classic Pumpkin Pie

Of course, a classic pumpkin pie is your first go-to recipe. This is always a crowd favorite, especially at Thanksgiving, so make sure you’ve got a good recipe for when fall rolls around. When making a pumpkin pie, it is up to you whether you want to use store-bought or homemade pumpkin puree. Canned puree is definitely the easier option, and will give you more consistent results, so this is definitely a good idea if you’re a less experienced baker, or if you’re cooking for a big crowd. However, if you want to try something a little more adventurous, have a go at making your own. When made from roasted pumpkin, the pie does have a richer taste, but there is not a huge amount of difference between the two.

This classic pumpkin pie is really about the spices, as the pumpkin flavor by itself is quite plain. Your main spices in any pumpkin pie recipe will be cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. This combination will give your pie the perfect sweet and spicy wintery taste that pumpkin pie needs.

To get a great old-fashioned classic pumpkin pie, follow this recipe. It’s super simple and it will give you a great classic pumpkin pie!

2. Ginger Pumpkin Pie

Ground ginger will be in the recipe for almost any pumpkin pie that you’re making, but this recipe makes the ginger the stand out taste of the desert. What is most different about a ginger pumpkin pie is its crust – it is a ginger snap crust rather than using normal pastry. The tangy and spicy gingersnap is the perfect complement to the sweet, custardy pumpkin filling of the pie, so this is a really nice alternative to a regular pumpkin pie. The key to getting the perfect spiced ginger pumpkin pie is to use fresh ginger rather than ground, as this really accentuates its taste over the other spices.  Follow this recipe to give this pumpkin pie alteration a try and impress your guests this fall!

3. Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

Chocolate is always a good idea – and this doesn’t stop when we’re talking about pumpkin pie. This is definitely a more decadent dessert choice as the pumpkin is rich in itself, so becomes quite heavy when also combined with the taste of the chocolate. This is best served in small amounts to be able to enjoy the richness but not be overwhelmed by it, but it is definitely worthy of a try. This recipe for triple chocolate pumpkin pie uses a layer of bittersweet chocolate between the pie and the crust, a small amount of silky chocolate within the filling, and a milk chocolate topping to achieve the perfect chocolate pumpkin pie.

The filling of pumpkin pie is so rich and creamy that you don’t always even need the crust to make a delicious and satisfying dessert, so follow this recipe to make an amazing crustless pumpkin pie! Making the pie without a crust makes the recipe much easier, so if you’re cooking for a big group, a crustless pumpkin pie can be a lot simpler and easier to make!
