Through out most of the United States pumpkin pie is served after the traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

Wouldn't you have loved to get a slice of that pumpkin pie.

John Greenleaf Whittier wrote in his 1850 poem "The Pumpkin"

Ah! on Thanksday, when from East and from West,

From North and from South comes the pilgrim and guest;

When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his board

The old broken links of affection restored;

When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,

And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before;

What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye,

What calls back the past, like the rich Pumpkin pie?

Lydia Maria Child's 1844 Thanksgiving poem "Over the River and Through the Wood" references pumpkin pie in one of its verses: "Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done? / Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!" The Christmas-themed song "There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays" makes a reference to homemade pumpkin pie being looked forward to by a man returning to his family's home in Pennsylvania. "Sleigh Ride", another popular Christmas song, also mentions sitting around a fire after being out in the snow and eating pumpkin pie. "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" contains the lyric, "Later we'll have some pumpkin pie / And we'll do some caroling".

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Making Pumpkin Pie And Then Some

Pumpkin pie is a traditional American and Canadian, holiday dessert. It consists of a pumpkin-based custard baked in a single pie shell. The pie is traditionally served with whipped cream.

Pumpkin Pie Ingredients

1. 2 cups (480ml) milk, scalded

2. 2 cups (450g) pumpkin, cooked and strained (or plain canned pumpkin)

3. 1 cup (240ml) maple syrup

4. 1/8 cup (30g) sugar

5. 1 Tbsp. flour

6. ½ tsp. salt

7. 1 tsp. ginger

8. 1 tsp. cinnamon

9. 1/4 tsp. nutmeg (optional)

10. 2 large eggs, beaten

11. 1 unbaked nine-inch pie shell

Instructions For Making Your Pumpkin Pie

Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

Blend all ingredients, except the pie shell, together.

Pour into the unbaked pie shell.

Bake at 350 °F (180 °C) for 45 minutes.

Let cool and serve.

Notes, tips, and variations

This recipe replaces much of the sugar normally found in a pumpkin pie recipe with maple syrup. Use only real 100 percent maple syrup, not maple-flavored pancake syrup, as their sugar content is different. You can also use brown sugar instead of maple syrup.

Note substitutions, below.

Prepare the raw pumpkin by skinning and cutting into 1" cubes. Bake at 350 °F (180 °C) for an hour and then turn off the heat. Leave the pumpkin in the oven for another hour or two, this will reduce the moisture content. The pumpkin may also be steamed but may end up with too much moisture, resulting in a runny pie. A 10" (25cm)-diameter pumpkin will make 4 to 6 pies. The pumpkin may also be baked whole and skinned afterwards.

Pumpkin pie has no top crust, which makes most forms of decoration impossible, but for a more aesthetically-pleasing pie, put dollops of real whipped cream on each slice, or add a decorative rim to the side crust with artfully layered dough cut-outs, in the shape of fall leaves, squash or pumpkins.

Variant: Chocolate-covered pumpkin pie

After the pie has cooled, melt 2 oz. (55g) of sweetened chocolate (milk or dark) and pour over the top of the pie. Be sure to completely cover the pumpkin. Refrigerate to set the chocolate.

Variant: Pumpkin Pasties

Roll pie crust pastry thin and cut into circles approx 4" in diameter.

Put a spoonful of the cool pumpkin mixture towards one side of the center of the circle. Fold over the crust into a half-circle and firmly crimp the edges closed. Slice three small slits in the top for venting. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake only until crust is a light golden-brown, approx 10 minutes.

Substitutions

14 oz. (1 can) sweetened condensed milk can replace the scalded milk and maple syrup.

2 cups of plain canned pumpkin can replace the cooked and strained pumpkin.

Do not use "pumpkin pie filling", which has added spices.

Scalded Milk

Scalded milk is milk that has been heated to 82 °C (180 °F). At this temperature, bacteria are killed, enzymes in the milk are destroyed, and many of the proteins are denatured.

In the old days, milk needed to be scalded in order to make it sanitary. Nowadays, though, the pasteurization process milk goes through before it can be sold kills off all potentially harmful bacteria. Some recipes, especially for bread, may still call for scalded milk since the scalding process can improve the density and formation of the food.
