Pumpkin Apple Pie

Pumpkin and Apples – perfect combination! This was the first pie I’ve ever made and it was delicious. I made this during Thanksgiving, found the recipe at Wholefoods online and modified it slightly. I baked it in a ready-made graham cracker crust – next time I may skip the crust altogether and put the filling in individual ramekins. I’m not sure how you could modify this to prevent the crust from getting soggy. Perhaps a regular pastry pie crust would be better? In any event, the filing has great flavor and I love the texture of the apples and creamy pumpkin – crust probably isn’t necessary!

  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 Fuji apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 tsp. each pumpkin pie spice, ground cloves, and ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 9-inch pie shell (in pie pan)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Put brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, dash salt, water, and butter into a medium pot and cook over medium heat. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Add apples and cook, coating apples in mixture, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together egg, sugar, pumpkin, dash salt, spices, and evaporated milk until well combined.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, scoop apple slices into pie shell then spoon pumpkin mixture evenly over the top. Bake for 10 minutes then reduce to 375 degrees and bake until filling is just set in the middle, about 40 minutes more. Set aside & cool completely before slicing.
