Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie

Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie is unbelievably easy to make. After a little over 3 hours in the crock pot on HIGH, the filling sets up and has plenty of pumpkin flavor along with cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg.

Easy Holiday Dessert

This recipe is perfect for the holidays. Not only is it easy to make, it frees up valuable oven space and you’ll have the wonderful scent of pumpkin pie filling your house all morning long.

Quick Prep

I use a 6-quart crock pot for this recipe and the filling is the perfect height. This Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie recipe uses a refrigerated pie crust to make it quick and easy to prep. You can have everything ready to go in the crock pot in under 10 minutes.

Recipe Tip

To make it easy to remove the pumpkin pie from the slow cooker, a layer of parchment paper is used. Let the pie cool a little while in the slow cooker insert. Remove the insert from the crock pot so it will cool faster. After about 30 minutes, you should be able to remove the whole thing by lifting up on the parchment paper.

Slice it and serve with some whipped cream. You will love the custardy texture that’s full of fall spices!

PREP: 10 minutes
COOK: 3 hours 15 minutes
TOTAL: 3 hours 25 minutes


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin or 1 3/4 cups pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • whipped cream for serving


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin, half-and-half, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt, cloves, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • Unroll pie crust on a piece of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll it out a little longer in one direction (an inch or two) to make it more of an oval shape.
  • Lift parchment paper and place in the bottom of a 6-quart crock pot
    Note: You can use a round crock pot. No need to roll the pie dough out.
  • Press and shape the pie dough to fit the bottom of the crock pot. Trim the parchment paper so it only extends a little beyond the dough.
  • Pour batter into pie crust.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours and 15 minutes. Remove lid and remove crock pot insert from crock pot. Let cool 30 minutes and then remove whole pie from crock pot using the edges of the parchment paper to lift it out.
  • Slice and serve with whipped cream. If not serving right away, refrigerate.

    Just made this recipe today and had no half & half so I used evaporated milk – so good!!! It did bake up a little quicker in my crockpot – 2.5 hours + a few min.

    I also didn’t have a pie crust. But I am happily eating the custard 🙂

    Hi I am looking at your pumpkin pie recipe, my 7 year old son is excited to make one together. I am sure this is going to be a stupid question, but here goes; it says in the recipe 1 1/2 cups half and half and in the instructions it says the same. Does this mean half and half of fresh and tinned pumpkins? I live in Thailand (I am British) I can buy fresh pumpkins here but not tinned. I would appreciate it if you could advise me. Also I can buy puff pastry here but not pie pastry, will it still work OK.

    Many thanks for your help.

      Half-and-half is a dairy product that we have here. It is essentially half whole milk and half cream.

  4. I can’t wait to try this recipe! I didn’t know that I could make pie with crock pot! Thank you for sharing!!
