Pumpkin Meringue Pie

Pumpkin Meringue Pie

With Merge Two Famous Pies for One Perfect Result Recipe by George Stella /

Pumpkin pie is a standard for us around the holidays and we’ve made it all sorts of ways. This is the first time that we’ve made it with a truly crunchy crust that doesn’t compromise. This is also the first time that we’ve topped it with fluffy, marshmallow-y meringue. It just doesn’t get any more perfect than this!

Prep Time: 30 Min | Bake Time: 1+ Hour Chill Time: 4 Hours | Serves: 12


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar substitute
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pure pumpkin
  • 1+1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup sugar substitute
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar


  1. Place oven rack in the center position and preheat to 350°F. Spray a 10-inch deep-dish pie pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place all Crust ingredients in a food processor and pulse until a dough is formed.
  3. Place dough into the prepared pie pan. Cover with plastic wrap and press down to spread the dough evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Discard plastic wrap.
  4. Bake Crust for 10–12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool as you make the Filling.
  5. Turn the oven up to 425°F.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all Filling ingredients, until fully combined. Pour into the baked Crust.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes at 425°F. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake an additional 25 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, make the Meringue. Add the egg whites to an electric mixer. Beat on high until frothy. Add all remaining Meringue ingredients and continue beating on high until stiff peaks form. Spread the Meringue over the baked pie, mounding it up high.
  9. Bake a final 15 minutes, or until Meringue is lightly browned. Cool on the counter for 1 hour. Chill for at least 3 hours before slicing to serve.
