The pumpkin pie is an essential dessert for the fall and winter holidays. You don't have to be into baking to make many of these delicious homemade pumpkin pies. They range from pumpkin pies with homemade pastry crusts to easy no-bake pies in graham cracker crusts.
If you're making a pastry crust, I recommend you partially bake it before you fill it. Pies with custard-type fillings are notorious for their soggy bottoms. Though many recipes call for an "unbaked crust," you'll see better results with a partially baked crust.
