Step 1

Roll 1 chilled pie disk to a 12” diameter circle. Transfer to a 9” glass pie pan.

Step 2

Fold the excess dough behind the crust under at the edge to build up the edge for crimping then crimp the edge. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 30 minutes or refrigerate 1 hour, which will help the crust bake more evenly without sliding down.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 425˚F. Line the center of your chilled pie crust with a 9-10″ ring of crinkled up parchment paper and fill about 3/4 full with dry beans or pie weights. Bake 17 minutes or until edges are starting to turn golden.

Step 4

Remove pie weights, prick the bottom of the crust all over with a fork, brush the inside of the pie crust with egg white and place back in the oven without weights for 5 minutes or until the center looks dry. While it’s still hot, brush the inside with egg white which creates a barrier so the filling doesn’t soak into the crust. Cool completely to room temp before adding the filling.

Step 5

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, egg and yolks, brown and granulated sugar, vanilla extract, salt, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon until well combined.

Step 6

Add evaporated milk and whisk until blended and all of the bubbles are gone from the batter. Tap bowl against the counter a few times to knock out any extra bubbles.

Step 7

Reduce oven temperature to 350˚F and bake 55-60 minutes until the pie is nearly set. It should be completely set at the edges with just a slightly loose center. It should be barely wobbly like a cheesecake.

Step 8

Cool completely on a wire rack until room temp (3 hours) then serve or refrigerate if not serving the same day.

Step 9

In a mixing bowl with the whisk attachment, beat on medium speed with the whisk attachment or egg beaters for 1 minute until soft peaks form.

Step 10

Add 3 Tbsp sugar, 1/2 Tbsp rum, and 1/2vanilla and beat on medium-high speed until medium peaks form.
