Easy Pumpkin Pie

Easy Pumpkin Pie recipe is a classic for Thanksgiving dessert. Pumpkin Pie is really so easy to make and isn't just reserved for Thanksgiving in our house.

Easy Pumpkin Pie in a flaky crust with a dollop of whipped cream is a favorite! Homemade Pumpkin Pie made with Greek Yogurt to keep it rich and delicious. A must make Easy Pumpkin Pie recipe for Thanksgiving dessert  from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.


Easy Pumpkin Pie is a fall favorite in our house and not just reserved for Thanksgiving. 

I usually call this Skinny Pumpkin Pie, because I made it healthier by switching out heavy cream for greek yogurt, and decreasing the sugar a little bit. The greek yogurt is still thick and rich enough the creams not missed. 

Colt and the kids couldn't even tell the difference. Actually it was so good I could barely keep them out of it. Colt and I actually enjoyed a slice of Pumpkin Pie 2 days in a row after the kids left for school. 

Since it has greek yogurt and eggs I thought it totally qualifies as breakfast with a cup of coffee. The morning after Thanksgiving I always look forward to a slice of leftover Easy Pumpkin Pie for breakfast.

Here's how to make Pumpkin Pie.


I like to partially blind bake the pie crust before adding the pumpkin pie filling. Yes, it is an extra step, but I find it prevents the bottom of the crust from becoming soggy. 

My 3 favorite Pie Crust recipes to use are Flaky Pie Crust, Flaky Sour Cream Pie Crust, or Gluten Free Pie Crust

If making  Homemade Pie Crusts overwhelm you, you can check out this Review done by Elise at Simply Recipes of the 10 Best and Worst Store Bought Pie Crusts. I haven't tried a store bought crust myself but completely understand how overwhelming it can be to learn to make pie crust or the need to save time.

Take your Uncooked Pie Crust and line a deep dish pie plate, crimp edges and poke all over the bottom and sides with a fork. 

Take a large piece of thick foil and place into pie crust making sure foil is pressed against sides and bottom of crust. Be careful not to bump the edges. Roll excess foil in so edge is exposed. 

Tip: If foil isn't pressed firmly against the edges your edges will fall, so make sure foil is all the way to the edge.


Bake crust in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes on the center rack. 

Remove foil and bake 5 minutes more or until starting to set. 

Remove and allow to partially cool while making filling.

Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees.

Easy Pumpkin Pie Filling in bowl has pumpkin puree, brown sugar, eggs, greek yogurt, milk, salt, cinnamon, ginger , allspice, nutmeg.

In a large mixing bowl add:
  • 1 3/4 cup Pumpkin Puree or Canned Pumpkin 
  • 2/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
Mix until fully combined.


Fill pre baked pie crust with pumpkin filling and bake on lowest rack in preheated 350 degree oven for 50-55 minutes or until edge is set but the center is still loose when moved. 

Make sure not to over bake.
