Pumpkin pie

Pumpkin pie is a preferred dessert in my house. Everybody loves it. Even though we have various recipes, this one is our favorite.

The reason? There’s many. The crust is just perfect. The custard is extra creamy, not too sweet; it has the right amount of spices, and last but not least, the silky custard doesn’t crack while in the oven and it has a shiny finished look.

What else can you ask for in a pumpkin pie? Well, in addition, this creamy pumpkin pie is super duper easy to make. I not only made it with my unbeatable pie crust recipe but I also used NESTLÉ® LA LECHERA® Sweetened Condensed Milk to create the unbelievable smooth and delicious pumpkin custard.

This creamy pumpkin pie recipe can now be incorporated into the already long list of ways to use sweetened condensed milk in my kitchen. For those of you who don’t know me, I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. Back there, my grandma was the one in charge of the kitchen of our extended family, while my aunts Nancy and Marisela, were the ones in charge of the sweets and dessert “department”.

I could write an encyclopedia with all the sweet memories I have from my childhood involving my aunties and all the delicious flans (quesillos, as we call flan inVenezuela), cakes and papitas de leche made with sweet condensed milk. Not to mention my childhood favorite after school snacks: smoothies, raspados (snow balls), toast and bananas, all topped with sweet condensed milk.

LA LECHERA sweetened condensed milk, known as simply LA LECHERA, in my home country way back when was a staple in my grandma’s and mom’s kitchens, as it was in every pantry in Latin America. Of course, these days it’s a staple in my kitchen too.

I use it to make ponche crema (the Venezuelan eggnog) and coquito, its Puerto Rican equivalent, rum batidas, rice pudding, and all kind of desserts including my lemon mousse and key lime pie, and now this unbeatable pumpkin pie that my family loves and it’s a classic for the holiday season.

Are you a LA LECHERA fan like me? Not familiar with this sweetness in a can? I always buy it canned, but it comes in a pretty convenient squeezable bottle too that you can now find with a new packing. You can find them both in the baking aisle at Publix.
