Pumpkin Pie Filling

  • Cream cheese must be super soft so when it’s whipped in the mixer there are zero clumps. You can leave it out for a few hours or quickly soften it in a bowl in the microwave for about 45 seconds. 
  • Using am electric mixer and paddle attachment, whip the super soft cream cheese and eggs on high. 
  • Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and add in both sugars, pumpkin, ginger, cornstarch cloves, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Mix on medium until combined. 
  • With the mixer on low, slowly add in the evaporated milk and melted butter. 
  • Continue to mix the pumpkin pie batter until everything is blended together.
  • Brush an egg yolk wash over the crust of the pie so it becomes a pretty shade of golden brown.
  • Pour into the pie crust and bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for 10 minutes. 
  • Cover the edges of the crust with tinfoil so it doesn’t burn, then turn the oven to 350 degrees and bake for another 25-30 minutes.
  • The center of the pie will be just slightly jiggly when it’s done.
