This pumpkin pie is rich, smooth and is flavorful. One thing about pumpkin pie I think it has to be smooth. Using sour cream and organic pumpkin puree really helps to make this pie smooth and rich. I love using all brown sugar, instead of brown sugar and sugar. The reason is brown sugar gives the pie a real richness.
Let’s talk about the pie crust. I love a good pie crust. My buttery pie crust is amazing. Like it is so good by itself. You can also use a store bought crust no harm in that. If I use a store bought crust, I love to add a little bit of cinnamon and brown sugar to the crust when I roll it out a little bit. A good homemade pie is delicious, but a doctored up store bought can be good too.

A few tips for you. for when it comes to baking a pie. A glass dish doesn't take as long a ceramic dish. I usually bake my pies in a ceramic dish, so my pie takes 60 minutes. Also with a ceramic pie dish you want to roll the pie crust a little thinner.
