Can you eat pumpkin pie without cooking?
Is it safe to eat undercooked pumpkin pie? No. Undercooked pumpkin pie contains raw eggs and can make you sick.
Does pumpkin pie need to be cooked?
Most custard pies, including pumpkin, require a blind baked pie crust before baking. This maneuver ensures the pie crust and the filling are done baking at the same time, but it also prevents the crust from becoming soggy while it bakes. This makes for a better texture in both the crust and pie.
How do you steam a pumpkin on the stove?
Fill a wok or saucepan 1/3 with water. Bring to the boil. Place prepared pumpkin slices in a steamer basket. Cover and steam over simmering water for 10 minutes or until almost tender.
Bake the pie on a baking sheet in the lower third of the oven to encourage a crisp crust.
How can I tell if my pumpkin pie is done?

Can you put an undercooked pumpkin pie back in the oven?
Can I put them back in the oven? Yes. Heat an oven as close to 200F as you can get. Put strips of aluminum around the edge of the pies, to cover the crust.
Why is my pumpkin pie watery?
Over-baking/High Heat As with any custard, over-baking or baking at too high of a temperature can cause the pie to become watery and curdled. Remove the pie from the oven when it is still slightly jiggly in the center. It will continue to set as it cools.
How do I know when my pie is done?
Tip: What’s the best way to tell if your pie is done? For fruit pie, the top crust will be golden brown, and you’ll be able to see filling bubbling around the edges and/ or through the vents. For best results, let the filling bubble for at least 5 minutes before removing the pie from the oven.
Do you steam or boil pumpkin?

Nick says: Normally it’s not a good idea to bake a pie on a pan or cookie sheet unless you deliberately want to insulate the bottom of the pie. If your bottom crust looks good but the top crust is too pale, move the pie to the upper third of the oven for the last 15 minutes of baking.
Where do you put pumpkin pie in the oven?
A pie’s place in the oven is on the bottom rack. The worst mistake you can make with your pie is under-baking the bottom crust—it makes for a soggy, doughy mess. Baking your pie on the bottom rack will ensure that bottom crust gets nice and golden brown.
Can you bake two pumpkin pies in the oven at the same time?
Yes, baking two pies at once is fine, as long as the recipes for both pies specify the same oven temperature. If you are baking them on the same oven shelf, make sure that there’s plenty of space around each pie, and that they are not too close to each other or to the oven walls.
