  • 1 ½ cups half & half
  • 2 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 0.25 oz packet unflavored gelatine [2 ½ tsp]
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 15 oz can pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp butter softened
  • 1 9 inch baked deep dish pie shell cooled


  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together half & half, flour and gelatin. Whisk until flour and gelatin crystals have dissolved. Add eggs, whisking until combined.
  • Add sugar, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into a stove top pot and cook over medium heat stirring gently to prevent sticking.
  • Cook for 5 minutes until the custard is the consistency of thick pudding. Remove from the heat. Add butter and vanilla, mixing until combined.
  • Pour custard into baked shell and smooth the top. Cool on the counter for 1 hour.
  • Chill in the refrigerator uncovered for at least 4 hours before cutting.
  • Top with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.


This pie can also be made with sugar substitute in equal amounts.
