Creamy, rich, and the most delicious pumpkin pie out there, learn the secret of how to make Costco’s pumpkin pie.
Is Costco’s pumpkin pie a staple in your Thanksgiving dinner routine?
Not only has Costco mastered the art of making me buy what I didn’t need in the first place, but they have also mastered the pumpkin pie which is nothing short of a Thanksgiving legend and has resulted in shopper aggression on more than one occasion.
There is something about Costco’s samples and pumpkin pie that can take the gentlest of housewives and turn them into fighting machines every autumn.
What makes this 3.5 lb treat worth fighting for? Well, it is creamy, smooth, and melts in your mouth.
Its deliciousness has ruined my ability to fully enjoy the lesser versions. So what is the secret?
Heavy cream, for one thing. (I mean really what doesn’t taste better with more fat?)And egg yolks for that richer texture.
When I did some research I found several blogs with copycat recipes, but Savor the Best had the most thorough explanation of what made Costco’s pumpkin pie stand out above the rest. With some slight process changes on my end, the original recipe needs to be credited to her.
I promise you will not regret giving this pumpkin pie recipe a try!
