  • 1 crust from 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts (2 Count)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa


  • 1
    Heat oven at 350°F.
  • 2
    Unroll pie crust on work surface. Press in bottom and up sides (about 1 inch) of 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom or pie plate.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat brown sugar and the eggs until thoroughly blended. Gently fold in pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin. Stir in whipping cream.
  • 4
    Reserve 1 cup pumpkin filling. (I poured it into the measuring cup I had the whipping cream in so I didn’t dirty another dish, or you can just leave it into the bowl.) Pour remaining filling into pie crust.
  • 5
    With whisk, stir together reserved 1 cup pumpkin filling and baking cocoa until no lumps remain. Pour chocolate filling over pumpkin filling in pie plate. Slightly tap sides of plate so 2 fillings combine.
  • 6
    Bake about 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Turn off oven and slightly open oven door; leave pie in oven about 1 hour 30 minutes to cool.
  • 7
    Refrigerate pie 3 hours before serving. Serve with whipped cream.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you do not have pumpkin pie spice, you can make your own by combining equal amounts of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice or cloves.
  • tip 2
    If you’d rather have more of a chocolate-y pumpkin pie, combine the entire pie filling with 1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa and 1 more tablespoon of whipping cream.

More About This Recipe

  • Do you ever find yourself in the grocery store wondering if you should be buying canned pumpkin or pumpkin pie filling? And where does pumpkin puree fit in? If you’ve ever been confused about the differences, you’re not alone! Canned pumpkin is exactly as the name implies: pure pumpkin that has been cooked and canned. Pumpkin puree is just another way of saying canned pumpkin. Pumpkin pie filling is mixed with spices like cinnamon, allspice, clove and ginger. It’s sweeter and tastes like pumpkin pie. That’s why many recipes, including this one, will specify that you should buy pure pumpkin, not the filling, because you’ll likely be adding spices or other ingredients. Knowing the difference between the terms is essential in making any kind of pumpkin pie dessert! But that’s just the first step in making the perfect pumpkin pie. Want to find out the next steps? Head on over to get the lowdown on how to make the best pumpkin pie from scratch.
