Who needs the hassle of homemade crust?  Our Lazy Pumpkin Pie keeps it simple with a store bought crust, canned pumpkin, spices and a dash of Thanksgiving spirit!


  • 1 9-inch Unbaked Store bought Pie Crust
  • 1 15-oz. Can of Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Large Eggs

  • 1 12-oz. Can of Evaporated Milk


  1. Preheat and Prep: Begin by preheating your oven to 425°F (220°C). If you’re feeling Martha Stewart-ish, you can make your own pie crust, we won’t judge. Otherwise, simply take it out of its packaging and slap it into a pie dish. No need to fuss – we’re all about simplifying things here.
  2. Mix It Like You Mean It: In a roomy mixing bowl, toss in the pumpkin puree, granulated sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. Mix it up like you’re doing the cha-cha until everything is smoothly combined.
  3. Egg-citement: Crack the eggs into a separate bowl and give them a little whisk. Pour them into the pumpkin party and stir until the whole gang is getting along famously.
  4. Milky Way: Slowly pour in the evaporated milk while continuing to stir. Keep at it until everything is harmoniously blended. It should look like a creamy, autumnal dream.
  5. Fill ‘Er Up: Pour this luscious concoction into your pie crust. If you’re feeling extra fancy, dust the top with a bit more cinnamon. It’s like the finishing touch on a work of art, except this masterpiece is edible.
  6. Bake It Like You Mean It: Pop that beauty into the preheated oven for 15 minutes at 425°F (220°C). This helps set the crust and gives it that golden glow.
  7. Chill Mode: After the initial 15 minutes of fame, lower the oven temperature to 350°F (175°C) and let your pie bake for another 40-50 minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. It’s like magic, only tastier.
  8. Cool Beans: Once your pumpkin pie has had its moment in the spotlight, let it cool on a wire rack. This is the hard part – resisting the urge to dive in face-first.
  9. Serve and Savor: When it’s finally time to serve, add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream because, let’s face it, you deserve it. Savor each bite of this spiced slice of heaven.
