  • 1 1/2 c. pumpkin puree
  • 3 eggs, seperated
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. King syrup or Karo
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. brown butter
  • 2 1/2 c. warm milk
  • 2 9" unbaked pie crusts


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Separate the eggs. Beat the whites until stiff and set aside.
  • Mix egg yolks with the pumpkin. Add sugars, syrup, flour, salt, and spices. Mix well.
  • Brown the butter and add it to the mixture. Or you can save some of it to drizzle over the top. I like how it looks with some of the butter drizzled over the top.
  • Add the warm milk and mix.
  • Gently fold in the egg whites.
  • Divide the mixture between the two pie crusts.
  • Bake in the bottom half of the oven at 400° for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350° and continue baking for another 30 - 40 minutes or until set and no longer jiggly.


To make brown butter, melt salted butter and continue cooking it until it is light brown in color.
For a healthier option: You can substitute the King syrup for maple syrup.
