    For the half of the pumpkin mixture you left out, add the evaporated milk, egg, and egg yolk. Stir until thoroughly combined. Pour the pumpkin pie mixture into a prepared pie crust, it should fill up about half of the space. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until pie is set in the middle and crust edges are brown.

    Step 3: Make the pumpkin chiffon topping

    While the pie is baking, pull out the small bowl of refrigerated pumpkin mix and stir in the 1/2 cup of whipped topping. You can use cool whip or any other whipped cream that you prefer. When the baked pie is slightly cool, add this whipped pumpkin mixture to the top of your baked pie, spreading it evenly. Refrigerate for 2 hours to overnight.

    When you are almost ready to eat this pumpkin chiffon pie, remove it from the refrigerator about 30 minutes beforehand and decorate the top with extra whipped topping and pumpkin pie spice as desired. Slice and serve.
