I believe this comes from a label off a can of pumpkin pie. No date given, picture and recipe below.

This recipe does indeed come from the Lippby’s 29 oz. can. However, it’s from some time ago. This is the recipe that I use just as it is written. The modern recipe on the can now replaces “Combine filling ingredients in order given” with “combine sugar and spices in a small bowl, slightly beat eggs, add in pumpkin then add sugar mixture and then add evaporated milk.”

I prefer adding in the order given and using a whisk to mix each ingredient thoroughly. This results in a much smoother mixture.

I’ll put my pumpkin pie up against anyone’s and be confident that their pie won’t be better than mine. I’ve had some that were as good, but none better.

I am thoroughly upset with the recipe on the back of the 29 ounce of Libblys pumpkin. I have beeen making pumpkin pies since 1977 since I got married and had the best recipe for pumpkin pies ever. Today it was brought to my attent that it is a new recipe which uses a 15 punce can of pumpkin instead of a 29 ounce can. It also called for 2 12 ounce cans of Carnations evaporated mil not one can evaporated and one can of sweetened comdensed milk. Why take and ruin a great recipe? I guess I am not the only one upset, as this is the only way my daughter has ever seen and remembers the recipe. She found one can with this original recipe today. What really is the purpose of the change?

THANK YOU! My husband (now passed) used this recipe for years and I was dumbfounded when bought the large can of pumpkin but only had a recipe for 1 pie. Thanks again. My family also says

So VERY disappointed in Libby!! Why would you sell a 29 ounce can of pumpkin and only put a recope for one pie on the label? What not smart person did that? Am I going to cut the pumpkin in the can in half and throw the rest away? Don’t people buy the large can to make two (2) pies? Hmm.. let’s think. Wouldn’t it make sense to go back to putting the recipe for 2 pies on the pumpkin can that makes 2 pies?? Dumb

Made this at Thanksgiving and noticed the recipe on can has changed from the vintage one. Flavor and consistency was different. I’m going to try it this way.
