Libby’s New Pumpkin Pie

Thanksgiving in the USA is fast approaching.  A favorite Thanksgiving dessert of many families is pumpkin pie.  Chances are the recipe for the pumpkin pie is the one from the back of Libby’s canned pumpkin.  It is a vintage recipe dating from the 1950’s.

However, Libby’s has a new pumpkin pie recipe, “New Fashion Pumpkin Pie”.  It is a change from their vintage 1950 recipe.  The new recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk in place of granulated sugar and less evaporated milk.  It also slightly increases the amount of ground cloves,  The new version also has a shorter bake time.

The recipe makes a lot of filling.  I had about a cup of filling leftover which I discarded.

I have made the pie on three separate occasions, back in April and then a couple days ago  I baked two pies for this post.  I gave one to my grandson who loves pumpkin pie.  He said the pie was very good.

This new version pumpkin pie is very quick and easy to make and bakes up a very tasty pie.  I can recommend it if you are looking for a pumpkin pie recipe for your Thanksgiving dessert.

  1. I love pumpkin pie! But I live in Germany and have yet to find a German that likes it too. So, I will just have to eat the entire pie myself! (The Germans in my life tend to like pumpkin served as a savory dish, can’t seem to wrap their heads around a sweet pie)
