Keep this general timeline in mind when planning for the big day:

Thanksgiving Eve:

  • Set out the butter and cream cheese for the pie crust. When softened, mix together and form a log (Step 1, Crust); refrigerate overnight.

Thanksgiving Morning:

  • Mix pie dough, put into pie plate, and refrigerate.
  • If using fresh pumpkin, bake it, then purée and allow to cool.
  • Prepare filling.
  • Assemble pie and bake.


Store your finished pie in the refrigerator; the eggs and milk in the filling can encourage bacterial growth.
