While you can use a whisk to mix the pumpkin pie filling, I like to use my electric beaters for this one. Maybe I’m just lazy but I just find it quicker to get the filling done and ready to be baked in the pie crust.

When using refrigerated pie crust, make sure you let it come to room temperature before placing it in the pie pan. Not only will it be easier to unroll the dough but it will also guarantee the best possible bake.

    This pumpkin pie is fabulous. The only change was that I used my own homemade pie crust. It was so good even on the second day.
