This super easy 5 ingredient Thanksgiving pumpkin pie recipe is the only one you’ll need for Thanksgiving and will have all your guests going for seconds.
I’ve had pumpkin pie on the brain for a while now. In fact, for Halloween last year I went as a pumpkin and my husband went as the math symbol ‘pi’ … get it…pumpkin pie! So clearly it’s been on my mind. I’m all about Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner just the thought of spending hours upon hours making pumpkin pie was causing me some stress, so I wanted to simplify it…because Thanksgiving is not Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie.
But the thing is, homemade pie is just SO much better than store bought pie, it just is. Plus there’s some pride that comes along with making homemade pie!
So I put on my Five Ingredient Friday thinking cap and set out to make a 5 ingredient pumpkin pie and am happy to say I have perfected the 5 ingredient pumpkin pie! It’s smooth and silky and is just plain ‘ole delicious pumpkin pie!

Easy 5 Ingredient Pumpkin Pie Recipe
- 1 can 15 oz. pumpkin puree
- 1 can 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 - 9 inch deep dish frozen pie crust
- Preheat oven to 450.
- In a large bowl combine pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix with a hand mixer or mix very well with a spoon.
- Pour mixture into pie crust.
- Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat on the oven to 350 and continue baking the pie for 35 minutes. Turn off heat and let the pie sit in the oven for 5 minutes, then remove from the oven (the pie filling will have puffed up, it will slowly settle back down) and allow to cool completely (2 hours-overnight). I like to make the pie the day before and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator.
