How To Make Chocolate-Swirled Pumpkin Pie

Bittersweet chocolate is swirled around this warm and comforting pumpkin pie to upgrade this Thanksgiving staple and make it more irresistible.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour 20 minutes
Cool and Chill Time: 50 minutes
Total: 2 hours 30 minutes



  • All Butter Pie Dough*
  • 4large eggs
  • ¾cupsugar
  • 1tbspcornstarch
  • 2tspcinnamon
  • ¼tspcloves
  • 1pinchsalt
  • 1canpumpkin puree
  • ½cupheavy cream
  • 3ozbittersweet chocolate


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 13-inch round a scant ¼-inch thick. Fit the dough into a 9-inch glass pie plate.

  3. Trim the edge to ¾ inches; fold the dough under itself and crimp decoratively. Refrigerate the pie shell for 10 minutes.

  4. Line the pie shell with foil and fill with pie weights or dried beans.

  5. Bake in the center of the oven for about 25 minutes until nearly set. Remove the foil and weights and bake until the crust is pale golden. This will take about 10 minutes longer. Let cool slightly.

  6. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, cloves, and salt until smooth.

  7. Whisk in the pumpkin puree, then the cream. Transfer 1 cup of the filling to a bowl and whisk in the melted chocolate.

  8. Working near the oven, pour the rest of the pumpkin filling into the crust. Dollop the chocolate filling on top and swirl it in with a butter knife.

  9. Bake the pie for about 45 minutes, until the custard is set. Cover the crust with strips of foil if it browns too quickly.

  10. Cool the pie on a wire rack completely before serving.
