INGREDIENTS

1 15-oz. can pumpkin purée
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ginger
1 14-oz. can sweeten condensed milk
2 large eggs
1 double pie crust (store-bought or homemade)
1/2 c. thick caramel sauce

How to make Jack Skellington-Inspired Pumpkin Caramel Pie

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees F.

Step 2: Combine the pumpkin puree, salt, spices, and sweetened condensed milk in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk until incorporated. Turn the heat off and allow it to cool for about a minute before whisking in the eggs. Set aside.

Step 3: At the bottom of an 8-inch pie plate, unroll one-piece pie crust. Pour over the pumpkin filling followed by the caramel. Gently swirl with a spoon or butter knife to make a marble-like texture. Make sure not to combine them completely.

Step 4: Place the rest of the pie crust on top and snip excess with a knife around the edges.

Step 5: Sketch Jack Skellington’s face with a toothpick, tracing it after to cut out the design using a sharp knife. You might want to cut the stitches first before cutting the line of the mouth to make it easier. Crimp the edges of the pie after.

Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven to bake for around 15 minutes. Then, with an aluminium foil, cover the top of the pie and continue baking at 350 degrees F for 38 to 40 minutes more. This way, Jack’s face will stay pale as a skeleton and the edges won’t burn.

Step 7: Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.
