Cardamom is one of my all time favorite spices and I’m trying to find more and more recipes that incorporate it lately. I feel like it is a very under utilized spice option, though it is one of the more expensive choices. When my son requested pumpkin pie recently, I thought it would be a dish that the cardamom would compliment well. This cardamom pumpkin pie is very simple and quick to put together – always a plus for Thanksgiving preparation.

Cardamom Pumpkin Pie


  • 1 – 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree
  • 1 – 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pie crust (I used a prepared crust this time)


Preheat oven to 350. With a hand or stand mixer, blend together pumpkin, condensed milk, and eggs. Add spices and blend thoroughly. Pour mixture into prepared pie crust and bake for 40 minutes or until a knife or toothpick comes out clean from the middle of the pie.
