Sheet pan pumpkin pie
There are so many wonderful reasons to make your pie in a sheet pan and we’ve just barely touched the surface on the perks. Another great thing about these pie bars is that because theyre a bit thinner than a usual pie, they don’t take as long to bake which means that you get more pie in less time and that’s probably the best thing of all.
Pumpkin Slab Pie Ingredients
-Pie crust: You will need 2 boxes of prepared pie crust. These boxes usually come in pairs so this means that you will have 4 crusts in total.
-Eggs: Use 3 large eggs to get a nice consistency with the pie filling.
-Sugar: 1 ¼ cups of sugar will make the filling nice and sweet.
-Spice: Add in 2 ¼ teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice to make the pie wonderfully spiced.
-Salt: Using 3/4 teaspoons of salt will help to enhance the flavors well.
-Pumpkin: Use 2 ¼ cups of canned pumpkin puree (from two 15 ounce sized cans) or use homemade puree.
-Milk: You will need 2 cups of evaporated milk. This means you will need two 12 ounce sized cans of evaporated milk.
How to make pumpkin slab pie
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
On a lightly floured surface unroll and stack 3 crusts on top of the other.
Roll it out to the size needed to fit your half sheet pan.
Press the pie crust firmly into the corner and sides of the pan, stretching the dough slightly if necessary. Fold the extra crust underneath and crimp the edges.
Beat the eggs with a whisk in a large mixing bowl.
Beat in the sugar, spice, salt, pumpkin puree, and milk until they’re all well blended.
Pour the mixture into your crust.
Bake in the oven for 33-36 minutes or until a knife can be inserted and come out clean.
Meanwhile, take the remaining dough and cut out shapes with your pumpkin cookie cutter.
Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Use these to decorate your pumpkin pie slices as desired.
What size of Pan do I need?
You’ll use a half sheet pan for this recipe, which is 18″ x 13″. This is the size most Americans call “cookie sheets.” Standard full sized sheet pans aren’t normally stocked in most people’s kitchens and tend to be used in commercial kitchens.
Can I use Homemade Pie Crust?
Absolutely! Our favorite is this Buttery Homemade Pie Crust. But we don’t want you to feel guilty if you opt for store-bought either. Some years are just a bit crazier, I get it!
