Kid-Friendly Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Kids can do so many things in the kitchen and it’s great for teaching them a lot. Kids can master basic cooking skills like these.
We made our pumpkin puree from an organic pie pumpkin I bought at the farmer’s market. All we did is cut the pumpkin in half, pull out all the pulp and seeds, and bake it cut side down until it’s fork-tender. I baked ours at 350.
Make sure to have the kids wash their hands well before they cook. And make sure someone is rocking a cowboy hat! Cooking with kids has so many benefits. Kids love to get their hands gooey. We saved our seeds and cooked those too.
Let the cooked pumpkin cool and scrape the flesh loose with a spoon. Drop it in the blender to puree it. For our recipe, I used what I had on hand, so we used a cup of regular milk. We added that to the blender to make it blend easily.
A small pumpkin yields about two cups of pulp which is about the same as a can of pumpkin puree. You can make a ton of pumpkin recipes for kids with this including this kid-friendly pumpkin pie recipe. Or you could try this traditional pilgrim pumpkin pie which is a lot different.

Pumpkin recipes for kids cooking classes
Our kid-friendly pumpkin pie does not have seasoning such as cinnamon because I am allergic to it, even the smell, while it’s baking, gives me respiratory distress. You are welcome to add whatever pie spices you want, but I have noticed a lot of kids don’t like pumpkin pie, and mine like it without the spices.
Kids usually like simple things. It really accentuates the pumpkin flavor, it’s a totally different taste.
Once we made our pumpkin puree, the kids added the other ingredients and stirred them together. We dumped the mixture into a pie shell and POW! Kid-Friendly Pumpkin Pie!

Amount for spices ?
If you use pumpkin pie spice, you can use 2 teaspoons. If you’re doing individual spices, you can do a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of cloves. It depends on how spicy you like it and if you like all of them.
