Are you expecting a crowd for your upcoming event? Skip the pie plate. Instead, pull out a sheet pan. A pumpkin slab pie will feed almost twice as many people than its 9-inch cousin. The ingredients that you will need is a single recipe of Ultimate Pie Dough, cans of pure pumpkin, grated fresh ginger, heavy cream, whole milk, large eggs, dark brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. For garnish, you can use whipped cream.

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie
Forget the flaky and very fussy pastry dough. Crush two bags of Oreos and mix them with melted butter. Press the mix into your sheet pan for a tasty and easy shortcut crust. Just like with any pie, it'll all start with an amazing crust. For this recipe, we are using the chocolate cookie crust. That is where the chocolate comes in with this Chocolate Pumpkin Pie.
Don't forget to cut the pie into squares and to serve them with whipped cream. On top, spice them up with cinnamon. To really take the pumpkin slab pie to the next level, emphasize the chocolate flavor. We recommend you sprinkle grated chocolate right on top of the slab pie.

Pecan Pumpkin Pie
A crispy, rich pecan topping with maple syrup will lend a twist to the traditional creamy pumpkin pie that will make your mouth water. It's very simple to make. In fact, the ingredients are the same as to the standard pie. The only difference is the topping which will involve the use of chopped pecans, sugar, maple syrup, eggs, and whipped cream (optional).
Muffin Tin Pumpkin Pie
You can bake this delicious treat in less than an hour using your muffin tin! You can make several of these yummy treats as they are so easy to whip up. They are also packed with the best flavors of the fall season.
These mini pies are so good that they are the favorite of kids and adults alike! The reason why a muffin tin pumpkin pie is a sure hit among guests is because of the ingredients. Starting with the best ingredients will produce the best results.
The crust uses unbleached white flour. Choose one that has not been enriched with additives. The organic flour will produce an airy and light crust which is ideal for this recipe. Once you're done making the crust, bake it for a couple of minutes. Then, top it with an oatmeal caramel crumble. Bake it some more, let it cool, and that's it! To make it even better, you can top it with either vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
