Pumpkin Pie is the ultimate Thanksgiving dessert. With Thanksgiving less than a month a way its time to start planning out our menu and I know this pumpkin slab pie is going on mine! If you're having a crowd for Thanksgiving dinner, this is perfect because now you don't have to make multiple pies!



Hi everyone, its Aimee from Like Mother, Like Daughter here! I am so excited to be joining The Slow Roasted Italian team as a monthly contributor. Keep your eye out for my new recipes every month, you can expect to see lots of heartwarming recipes, and lots of rich desserts, because I have the biggest sweet tooth ever!

I love pumpkin desserts all autumn long and this pumpkin slab pie is making its way up there as one of my all time favorites! Don't forget to top it with a big spoonful of homemade whipped cream!



Make sure that you don't overfill the pie with filling. I know you'll want to use every last drop of that delicious pumpkin pie filling, but if you fill it too high you risk the filling spilling as you carry the pan to the oven or overflowing around the crust. Depending on how deep your pan is, you might not need to use all of the filling - it spreads a teeny bit as it's baked.

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

The Best Ever Pecan Bars are so good people offer to pay me for them.  A caramelized pecan pie set atop a shortbread crust is the absolute perfect nut bar.

Crazy Caramel Apple Pie Bombs are the pull apart bread of your dreams.  Scrumptious dough is loaded with apples, caramel and cinnamon then topped with butter and brown sugar.  Once they come out of the oven they are drizzled with more caramel.  Ooey gooey caramel perfection!

Pumpkin Slab Pie
SERVES 24 

 For the Pie Crust:
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups + 2 TBS (3 sticks + 2 TBS) cold butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup ice water
For the Pumpkin Pie Filling:
  • 1 29oz can (or 2-15oz cans) pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2 cups evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 eggs
For the Egg Wash:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TBS water or milk
To Make the Pumpkin Pie Crust:
  1. Mix the flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Add in the butter pieces. Using a pastry cutter (or two forks - though its much harder), cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs, with some pea sized pieces.
  2. Drizzle the cold water in about 1 tablespoon at a time and stir with a rubber spatula. Continue kneading the dough together with your holds until the flour and butter are fully incorporated together into a nice dough. It shouldn't be too sticky.
  3. Separate about 1/4 of the dough (this will be for the top decorative leaves if you want them. Flatten each section into 1 inch thick discs. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for about 2 hours.
To Make the Pumpkin Pie Filling:
  1. In a large bowl combine your pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, salt and eggs. Stir until mixed. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge till needed.
To Make the Pumpkin Slab Pie:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Remove the larger piece of pie crust from the fridge. Roll that out evenly into an approximately 18x13 rectangle. Place the pie crust into a greased 10x15 jelly roll pan (it should be about 1inch thick so you can fit more of the filling) Smooth the crust so it fits into the corners and crimp the edges with your fingers.
  3. Pour the pumpkin pie filling into the crust. Carefully place the pie in the oven to bake, make sure not to spill any of the filling. Bake for 35-45 minutes until the middle is barely jiggly.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack completely.
  5. Roll out the second disc of pie crust to be about 1/8 inch thick. Using leaf or pumpkin shaped cookie cuters, cut into the shapes. Cut veins with a sharp knife if desired. Brush each with egg wash (beat egg and water together in a small bowl). Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and place on pie when serving.
  6. Serve pie with fresh whipped cream.
  7. Cover any leftovers and store in the fridge for 5-6 days.

  1. I have become increasingly fond of slab pies versus round. This is marvelous and the recipe itself is wonderful.

  2. I have my own pumpkin recipe I'd like to do this with but not sure if this would be a 1 pie or if it's a 2 pie filling.
