Quick and Easy Sweet and Spicy No Crust Pumpkin Pie -- Plus Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe!

Sweet and Spicy Sets This Pumpkin Pie Apart

This pumpkin pie recipe has been a hit from the first time I made it many years ago. It is not just a great dessert, but it makes an excellent snack too.

I am including my recipe for pumpkin pie spice. Pumpkin pie spice is so expensive that I just had to figure out how to make it myself. It really was not hard to do at all. My recipe for pumpkin pie spice is spicier than the spice you can buy already mixed.

One of my peeves about frozen pumpkin pie, restaurant pumpkin pie -- and sorry, but even pumpkin pie made by some of my friends and relatives -- is that it is just too bland. I like my pumpkin pie sweet and spicy. Bland pumpkin pie is boring and frankly, a chore to eat. It is hard to keep a smile on my face when trying to choke down boring, bland, pumpkin pie.

I am convinced that those people who do not like pumpkin pie form their opinion because they have not had sweet and spicy pumpkin pie such as I make, and like my mother made before me. No, this is not my mother’s pumpkin pie recipe, but hers was sweet and spicy too.

Technically This Pie Is Not 100% from Scratch

I do not stew my own pumpkins to make this recipe, though people who want to do that can certainly substitute home stewed pumpkin for the canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) called for in this recipe. My mother used to stew the pumpkins herself when she made pumpkin pie and the hardest part was peeling the pumpkins.

One other shortcut I use that some die-hard scratch cooks may object to is that I use baking mix. I use Bisquick baking mix, which is where I originally got the recipe before I tinkered with it and tweaked it until it was just right. You can use whatever baking mix is your favorite and the results should still be fantastic.

My regular readers know that I just cannot leave a recipe alone, and even before I make it the first time I have to make changes to it to suit me. This recipe was no exception.

Ingredients and Directions for One Pie

1 Cup Sugar

1-13oz. can Evaporated Milk, your favorite brand

½ Cup Bisquik (or your favorite other brand) baking mix

2 Eggs slightly beaten with a fork

1-16oz. can pumpkin (not pie mix but plain stewed pumpkin)

2 tsp. Vanilla

4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (see recipe for this below)

1-8oz. container Cool Whip if desired, or vanilla or other favorite flavor of ice cream to serve with the pie.


Method

* Lightly grease a 9 inch fairly deep pie plate. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

* Beat all ingredients together except Cool Whip, until smooth with a blender or mixer.

* I like to start with all the dry ingredients together and then add the vanilla and eggs, mix slightly, and finally add the pumpkin, mixing well after the pumpkin is added.

* I leave the evaporated milk until the very last and add only a third of it at a time so that it mixes better and is less likely to splash. Be sure to shake the can(s) of evaporated milk before opening because it does tend to separate while sitting on the shelf.

* Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

* Cool and serve topped with your preference of Cool Whip or ice cream if desired.

Recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice

This recipe makes 8 tsp of pumpkin pie spice.

4 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp ginger

1 tsp nutmeg

½ tsp cloves


You can mix the above ingredients together before measuring and adding them to your pumpkin pie batter.

I usually double the pie recipe and that makes 3 pies instead of just one. I use the 29-ounce can of pumpkin when I double the recipe. The pies are gone so soon after they come out of the oven that it just seems more efficient to make three pies at a time. Also, when you make 3 pies at a time there is no pumpkin pie spice left over.

I am back to read this again, I have a taste for something sweet and I don’t know what. I made a chocolate cake for John, but you know what chocolate would do to me….so maybe I will make this pie.

Peggy W., thank you for stopping in and for sharing this recipe again! This is such a popular recipe with my family! And so easy to make -- if you use the canned pumpkin. ;)

My mother always grew her own pumpkins and peeled them and stewed them for our pies. Pumpkin is indeed a very nutritious vegetable/squash and there are many ways to prepare it that are yummy.

Hard to believe we're nearly down to the last 2 months of the year and Halloween is already this weekend. Time flies so fast! I did get wet a couple of times, but I survived. Glad H. Patricia didn't do all the damage either here or in Mexico that it was expected to do. Hope you have an enjoyable Halloween doing whatever you like to do on that day. I don't really celebrate it, but when my daughter was little I used to let her dress up in happy costumes so she wouldn't feel left out. I made her a butterfly costume one year. I should probably write a hub about it . . . :)

This is the perfect time of year to once again share this pumpkin pie recipe as it will not be long before Thanksgiving is upon us. I like my pumpkin pie spicy as well. I also like pumpkin breads that are fragrant with spices. Halloween is next week and I have 3 pumpkins decorating our front entrance. Intend to keep them there through Thanksgiving and then I will cook them or roast them and make different recipes from them. Pumpkin is a good edible squash.

Hope you stay dry and safe up there. We are in for a soggy weekend!

I do not like bland pumpkin pie and lots of people have told me they don't like pumpkin pie at all. I think it's because the only pumpkin pie they've tasted was bland and boring. Mine is, as stated, sweet and spicy. Yummy!

Yes, Thanksgiving is only 5 weeks or so away, but pumpkin pie is delicious any time of the year, and pumpkin is healthful too.

I don't think this pie would turn out very well without the egg. The egg is what holds all the other ingredients together. I would suggest an egg substitute which should be at the grocery store next to the eggs, liquid eggs section.

Because of your comment I modified the title to this recipe article and deleted several of the links because they went to articles and recipes not related to pies or even deserts. Appreciate your bringing my attention to this.

Kathryn Stratford, thank you for adding a link to this recipe. I look forward to reading your hub on baking mix and recipes to make from it. I would love to save money on the baking mix AND not have to worry about whether or not I have enough Bisquik on hand for my recipes when I decide to make them. So much easier to keep the ingredients for the mix that to keep the mix itself (just my perspective).

Howdy Au fait -

Now THAT is some kind of really good pumpkin pie !

Just had some with ice cream. Really tasty stuff. The spice mix was just right, too.

Had to use brown sugar instead of the regular granulated kind - about to run out of the white stuff. Worked nicely with the brown sugar.

Thanks for the fine recipe.

Kathryn Stratford, even though lots of other people have posted recipes for Bisquik or similar baking mixes, I recommend that you write a hub about yours. We all have our followers and some are uniquely our own. There's no telling how many people might read your hub about making their own baking mix when they had never thought about it before, but will be inspired by your hub. Add a few of your recipes that include that baking mix and voilå! You have another hub.;)

Thank you GusTheRedneck for reading and commenting on this hub, and thank you for the follow!

I make the best crust! Those awful things they sell in the grocery store that taste like ground up cardboard are not real crusts and should not be confused with real flaky home made crust that turns out perfect every time. ;) But sometimes I'm lazy and I don't feel like cleaning up the mess a crust makes when it's rolled out.

Now cavier, THAT is an abomination. Just that one little word will enable me to stay on my diet for the rest of this week because I find just the thought of it so disgusting. ;) I'm so glad rich people eat garbage so there's more real food left for us poor folks. ;)

Do hope you have a good sense of humor Mr. Gus. Thanks again for stopping by and leaving such a fine comment!

Howdy Au fait - Gotta appreciate anyone who comes up with a pie that has no crust. Crusts are an abomination. No crusts are for Rednecks like me. Interesting stuff about the Bisquik mix. I played a bit with making my own variety of Bisquik using cooking oil. Seemed to work OK. Worked for me because we always have a bottle of cooking oil kicking around, too.

Bookmarked your fine article here. we will try it the next time our food stamps allow us to get a whole can of plain pumpkin instead of our constant loading up on caviar.

That reminds me, I used to actually make up a big batch of the Bisquick equivalent (the dry ingredients), and I had my own little handmade recipe booklet for different recipes that used it. I should do that again. Or maybe write a hub on it ;) I used to have a really cool cookbook that had some really good "mix" recipes in it, but nowadays most things can be found online.


Au fait profile image

Au fait 3 years ago from North Texas Author

Thank you Kathryn Stratford for reading and commenting on this hub! I'm sure you can make the equivalent of Bisquik and still get good results if that is your preference. I've looked for a recipe for Bisquik hoping to make my own because it would be less expensive, but all the recipes online require shortening, which would limit the shelf life somewhat. I've considered making it and leaving the shortening out 'til I'm ready to use it.

Anyway, I think you can use your own flour, baking soda, etc. and it will turn out just fine. Thanks again!

Kathryn Stratford 3 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

I love pumpkin pie. I prefer the crustless kind, since pastry crust adds a lot of fat to it. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I don't use baking mixes, I use flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt separately, but the Bisquick is a convenient short-cut, for sure.

I make my own spice, too. It's easier to customize the blend for your won tastes!

Thank you moonlake, for reading and commenting on this hub. This is a super easy recipe, and as I said, I tweaked it to make it just the way I like it, so I hope you like it too.

This pie sounds delish and just in time for Thanksgiving! I love pumpkin pie and do agree, lots of times it is bland. I've not been much of a cook or baker but I'm really trying to start doing that more.. Will be bookmarking and giving this one a try for sure. Thank you for sharing :)

Thank you tillsontitan for reading, commenting, and pinning this hub! I do hope lots of people try my version as it's much more interesting and delectable than Bisquik's plain ordinary version. ;)

Nicole S, thank you for reading & commenting. If you like sweet and spicy, you may want to add another favorite part to your pumpkin pie to go with the crust!

Very nice!! Although the crust is my favorite part, this would definitely save on calories (and all the work of rolling the dough!)

Thank you for stopping by Jen. I look forward to hearing how your pies turn out. I'm betting you will make more of them soon after the first ones are gone!

This does look tasty. I usually buy the pumpkin pie spice and it is expensive. I'm going to try making your recipe for that too. It will save money. I like pie crust, but I like not having to take the time to make it. The boughten crust isn't that good imo. This looks like a good snack food like you suggested. I'll let you know how it comes out.
