Whipped Cream

Instructions

Pie

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9-inch pie pan with butter and set aside.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and spices into a medium bowl and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, gently beat together the sugar, butter, and eggs. Mix in the pumpkin, evaporated milk, and vanilla.
  • Mix in the flour mixture and beat until smooth, then pour into the prepared pie dish. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes until toothpick comes clean from center. Allow the pie to cool completely. Pie will be domed in the middle when first removed from the oven but will settle.

Whipped Cream

  • Add all ingredients to a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and beat on medium-high until light and fluffy. Pipe prepared whipped cream onto the pie.
  • Slice and serve.

Notes

  • You can use anywhere between 5 and 12 ounces of evaporated milk, less milk means a denser texture. Readers have also said that they've used whole milk as well instead of evaporated milk with success.
  • Recipe slightly adapted from AllRecipes.
