Skillet Pumpkin Pie Recipe

My mother’s ‘famous’ recipe for skillet pumpkin pie.

Skillet Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Pumpkin pie has been a Thanksgiving obsession of mine for as long as I can remember. I’m OBSESSED. Thanksgiving is NOT Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie. It’s non-negotiable in my eyes. If I know this pie won’t be wherever I’m celebrating stuffing my face, I’ll bring it myself. It’s that important to me. Could I skip the entire meal and only eat pumpkin pie? Probably. Well…maybe not the stuffing.

Cool creamy pumpkin on a soft crust with a dollop of delicious whipped cream. There’s no other way. Now, I make my recipe exactly as my mom has always made it (yes it’s nostalgic for me), but my only special twist is I make mine in a cast iron skillet. Because this is Kitchen Swagger and I do everything in a cast iron skillet. Happy Thanksgiving and happy pumpkin pie-ing!

P.S. Don’t forget to save yourself (or me) an extra slice for breakfast.
