Autumn Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

Two autumn standards—pumpkin and apple—are joined together in this delightful pie. Topped with a crown of golden pastry “leaves,” this dessert is sure to impress.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1 cup apple butter
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • Additional pie pastry, optional
  • Whipped cream, optional


  • In a large bowl, combine the apple butter, pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and ginger. Add eggs. Gradually beat in milk until smooth. Pour into pastry shell.
  • Bake at 425° for 35-40 minutes or until set (cover edges loosely with foil if necessary to prevent overbrowning). Cool on a wire rack.
  • If decorative cutouts are desired, roll additional pastry to 1/8-in. thickness; cut out with 1-in. to 1-1/2-in. leaf-shaped cookie cutters. With a sharp knife, score leaf veins on cutouts if desired.
  • Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Arrange around edge of pie. Garnish with whipped cream if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
