Hi everyone! My name is Wendy L. Kirby a/k/a La Phemme Phoodie. I’m thrilled to be a guest on Kate’s blog. I’m sharing my favorite pumpkin pie recipe with you today. It’s nothing fancy or complicated. I’ve tried many recipes and found that this traditional pumpkin pie is by far my favorite pie to serve during the holidays.

Over the years I’ve experimented with many pumpkin pie recipes. Last year I made a pumpkin pie with cream cheese. It was good not great. In the past I’ve made several variations of a pudding pumpkin pie. All of the pies I’ve made in the past were fine but they weren’t what we were used to growing up. My family craves traditional comfort food at the holiday table. They don’t want anything fancy or new. To be quite honest, neither do I. I find comfort in our traditions.

This recipe is incredibly easy to make and has always been a hit at our table. If your family enjoys traditional pumpkin pie they will love this recipe. Enjoy!



1 (9 inch) unbaked deep-dish pie crust

¾ cup white sugar

1/ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

2 eggs

1 (15 ounce) can LIBBY’S 100% Pure Pumpkin

1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk


¾ cup pecans, toasted and chopped

¼ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced, cold


– Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

– Combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs lightly in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Pour into pie shell.

– Bake for 15 minutes.  Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F; bake for 40 minutes.

– Combine pecan streusel ingredients. Remove the pie from the oven and sprinkle the pecan streusel over the top, covering the pie completely. Return the pie to the oven and bake until the filling is set and pecan streusel is golden, approximately 10 minutes.

– Cool the pie on a wire rack. Serve after cooking or refrigerate.
