I’m a fan of my Crock Pot.

I’ve made Pumpkin Bread, Chicken n Dumplins, Pot Roast and dozens more.

This is so awesome. I’m pretty sure I’m making this for Thanksgiving. I’m excited that it doesn’t take ANY oven room. Just a corner with a plug in and my crock.

I made it for a party. At the end of the table, I set out crushed walnuts, pecans, brown sugar, whipped cream and cinnamon.

This is also made without crust. So I used a ‘lazy’ version of a family recipe for crust ‘dipping sticks’.

The sticks were just a refrigerated pie crust sliced up, brushed with butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Then I baked them at 350 until they were crispy (15 minutes)

The pie recipe is from one of my new favorite sites: Recipes that Crock.

 Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie

  • 15 oz Pumpkin
  • 12 oz Evaporated Milk
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 t Salt
  • 1/2 t Baking Powder
  • 2 Eggs- Beaten
  • 2 T Butter- Melted
  • 2 t Pumpkin Spice
  1. Combine all ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 2-4 hours, rotating crock to cook evenly.



**Note:  I used Crock Pot liners– to make clean up easy. That’s why there’s a bag there.
