20 Heavenly Pumpkin Pie Recipes

Posted on Oct 4 2016 - 9:29pm by Ave

 At last, it’s starting to feel like autumn here! It even rained a little bit today (insert happy dance here)!  I’m so ready for the fall and everything related to it – rainy days, cooler weather, colourful leaves (we don’t get them much, but still), apple pies and pumpkins.

October is a perfect month for everything pumpkin. Starting from different pumpkin baked goods and soups to different crafts and jack-o’-lanterns for the Halloween. So we decided to gather a handful of delicious pies, all made of pumpkin.

Did you know that the largest pie made of pumpkin was in 2010 and weighed 3,699 lb (1,678 kg)?20 Heavenly Pumpkin Pie Recipes

But before we go to all those heavenly recipes, let’s learn some interesting facts about pumpkins!

  1. The name pumpkin comes from the Greek word pepon (large melon).
  2. Pumpkins originated in Central America.
  3. Pumpkins are fruit.
  4. Pumpkins are 90 percent water.
  5. Antarctica is the only continent that pumpkins won’t grow in.
  6. Pumpkin seeds are a good source of protein, magnesium, copper, and zinc.
  7. Pumpkin flowers are edible.
  8. The jack-o’-lantern tradition is believed to have come from Ireland.
  9. Each pumpkin has approximately 500 seeds.
  10. Never carry a pumpkin by its stem. If the stem begins to pull away from the pumpkin, the fruit will rapidly start to spoil.
  11. Over 1 billion tons of pumpkins are produced each year in the USA.
  12. 80 percent of the pumpkin crop in the U.S. is available during October.
  13. Morton, Illinois calls itself the “Pumpkin Capital of the World“.
  14. The average weight of the pumpkin is 13 pounds.
  15. It is one of the very low-calorie vegetables – 100 g of fruit provides just 26 calories.

These pies are perfect for different celebrations – Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas to name a few. While all the pumpkin goodies are not so common here in Spain, I really understand all the fuss about the pumpkin desserts!

  • I’ve become obsessed with pumpkin seeds. I like to roast them on the stove and throw them in a salad or eat as a snack. I haven’t tried making pumpkin pie in years, beyond a pumpkin pie smoothie. With all these recipes to try, I am feeling inspired to give pie baking another try.

  • I didn’t know this much about pumpkins! Wow! For something that’s used in decadent desserts and treats, I didn’t expect it to be low on calories. Thanks for all the lovely recipes!
