4 Signs Your Pumpkin Pie Is Done and Ready to Serve
How to Tell if Pumpkin Pie is Done
The best way to tell if pumpkin pie is done without ruining a picture-perfect custard is to give it a nudge. If the pie jiggles (but doesn’t wiggle), then it’s done. You should also see that the filling has darkened and the texture of the pie should be a bit puffed up from when you put it in the oven.
If you’re still uncertain, stick a knife (or a toothpick) in the center and see if it comes out clean. You can also stick in an instant-read thermometer in the middle. When it’s done, it will register a temperature of at least 175°F.
