Crustless Pumpkin Pie Ingredients:
- Pumpkin puree - Libby's, you can also make homemade pumpkin puree
- Sugar - provides sweetness
- Cornstarch - helps with thickness
- Powdered milk - makes it more dense instead of adding a bunch of milk
- Spices - adds pumpkin pie flavor
How to make it:
- Mix together dried milk with the water so that it makes the milk
- Stir together rest of the ingredients. Pour in newly made milk mixture.
- Pour custard in sprayed pie tin. Bake!
Crustless pumpkin pie topping:
Once pie is mostly cool, feel free to put on any pie topping you want! Traditional toppings include ice cream, whipped cream, or nuts such as pecans.
Is using powdered milk necessary?
Yes and no. It does turn out more thick with powdered milk. However, it is not 100% necessary. If you wanted to go with the traditional liquid cows milk, I would recommend only putting half the conversion amount in.
What I mean by that is ⅓ cup powder produces 1 cup of milk. However, this recipe uses 1 cup powder which would convert to using 3 cups of milk. That would over flow the pan though, so I would recommend using only 1 ½ cups of cows milk.
How to tell when crustless pie is done?
When the center is no longer jiggly, the pie is done.
Can pumpkin pie be made ahead of time?
Yes, pumpkin pie lasts about a week in the fridge.
Can I use pumpkin pie filling?
No, this recipe calls for pumpkin puree. Canned pumpkin pie filling is already spiced and has sugar in it so it would be overly sweet since we add sugar in the actual recipe.
How to store no crust pumpkin pie:
- Fridge - I store mine in the fridge in an air tight container for up to one week
- Freezer - I have not tried freezing this crustless pumpkine pie recipe. I do not know how it would freeze because it is a custard. After it thaws, it might be rather watery. If you want to try freezing it, let me know how it goes.
