If you’ve dug into a homemade pumpkin pie during the last 75 years, chances are good it was made using Libby’s canned pumpkin, and with the same famous recipe that’s been on the back of their cans for the better part of a century. It is a classic, after all, and classics don’t change for a reason.


So, you can imagine our surprise when we learned that Libby's just launched a new pumpkin pie recipe for the first time in its 75-year history. Appropriately titled the New-Fashioned Pumpkin Pie, it’s described as a creamier twist on the original recipe and features Carnation Evaporated Milk and Sweetened Condensed Milk. Aside from the addition of condensed milk and the omission of some extra sugar, as well as a slightly shortened bake time, the recipe is pretty much the same.

Ready, set, bake!
