Frequently Asked Questions

Is pumpkin pie meant to be eaten warm or cold?

Pumpkin pie is most delicious right out of the fridge, topped with a dollop of whipped topping. You can also serve this pumpkin pie with streusel at room temperature if you prefer, taking it out of the fridge to thaw or letting it cool if it’s straight from the oven.

What’s in pumpkin pie spice?

In short, fall magic! This delicious warming blend of spices typically contains a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and sometimes all spice. You can purchase this magical blend pre-made at most grocery stores, or you can go the DIY route and customize your mix to your taste.

Why is my pumpkin pie crust soggy?

One of the best parts of a pumpkin pie is its buttery, flaky crust. The way to achieve this desirable crust consistency is to make sure you bake your crust before you add the filling. This process is often called ‘blind baking’ or ‘parbaking.’ Baking your crust first gives it time to firm up and brown–which won’t happen if you add the faster cooking filling right away and bake it all at once.
