Over the years I’ve made a lot of pumpkin pies. Like most folks, I buy the can of pumpkin and mostly follow the recipe on the can. As I’ve usually been making multiple pies, I’ve bought the large can from Libby’s that makes two pies. In their recipe you add 1 ½ cups of sugar and 2 cans of condensed milk. The change I’ve found successful is using one can of regular condensed milk and one can of sweetened condensed milk.
Shopping at Costco the other day, I saw they’re now carrying Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin. They were selling the cans that made one pie – although you still had to buy six cans – it is Costco after all. Their recipe was slightly different; you don’t add sugar but you do use sweetened condensed milk. I’m anxious to see how it turns out.
What is the secret sauce in your pumpkin pie recipe?
