Have I told you lately that autumn is my favorite time of the year? I love all of the vibrant colors, campfires, hot chocolate, S’more’s, hayrack rides, and caramel apples. I’m also in love with all things pumpkin, including this recipe for Easy Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie.

Since I love autumn so much, my bucket list includes investing in a good GPS and enjoying a leisurely drive through New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Michigan (just to name a few), when the fall foliage is at its peak.
As previously mentioned, I love all things pumpkin and a few of my favorite desserts encompass:
- Pumpkin White Chocolate Drop Cookies
- Pecan Pumpkin Pie
- Frozen Butter Pecan Pumpkin Pie
- Pumpkin Bundt Cake
- Pumpkin Swirl Coffee Cake
- Maple Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie Trifle
- Pumpkin-Chai Cheesecake with Caramel-Rum Sauce
I also love this recipe for Simple Pumpkin Muffins. So yummy!
Easy Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie begins by making one 9-inch unbaked pie shell. My family’s two favorite pie crust recipes include Viola’s Never Fail Pie Crust (a good old-fashioned Amish recipe) and/or Speedy Homemade Pie Crust. You really can’t go wrong with either recipe because both make delicious pie crust.
In addition, both pie crust recipes freeze well. Therefore, you can make a batch of dough, roll it out, place it into a pie pan and freeze until you are ready to make a pie.
Along with an unbaked pie crust, the list of ingredients for Easy Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie is fairly short: eggs, condensed milk, 100% pure canned pumpkin, salt and pumpkin pie spice. That’s it! Super easy and super simple.
Thanksgiving is always a good time to bring out a rustic round wood cake stand to display desserts and finger-foods.
Personally, I think that Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday when friends and family can connect without worrying about exchanging gifts. It’s a time to enjoy each others company and reflect on all the good things in life and a time to count our many blessings.
