Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen #102: Pumpkin Pie

Time for Kids and a Mom Dad in the Kitchen
(A weekly linky to share what you and your children have created in the kitchen.)


The linky is at the bottom.

A few weeks ago, daddy was desperate for a pumpkin pie. So, he gathered the children together and they had Kids and a Dad in the Kitchen time. We usually use the Libby's Pumpkin Pie recipe, which can be found on their can and on this site.

Of course, we double the recipe. 


1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
4 eggs
1 large can pumpkin puree
2 (12 oz) cans Evaporated Milk
2 unbaked pie crusts

First they mixed the sugar with the salt and spices.

Then it was time to help crack the eggs into our big bowl and beat them up.

They added the sugar spice mixture, the pumpkin, and the evaporated milk. Then they stirred.

It was then put in the pie plates that had been lined with the refrigerated pie crusts.


1- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2- Mix sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger, and cloves in a small bowl.
3- Beat eggs in a large bowl and add sugar/spice mixture, pumpkin, and evaporated milk.
4- Line pie plates with pie crust.
5- Pour pumpkin filling into pie crusts.
6- Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Check to see if it is done by using a knife inserted in the center. It should come out clean.

Do you have your children help you in the kitchen?  What lessons do they learn? Do you have any kid friendly recipes to share?
I'd love to see your posts, whether you have done something this week or some time in the past. Just link up below. This is a weekly linky.

  1. Thanks for inviting me to link up, even though my son did not help me make the Anzac biscuits. I agree with you that it would be a great kid-friendly recipe! If you and your children make these, I'd love to hear how it goes. :)

  2. I love when dads get involved in the kitchen, too. :) How fun!
