  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  • Whisk together pumpkin puree, egg yolks, and egg in a large bowl until smooth. Add sweetened condensed milk, cinnamon, ginger, salt, nutmeg, and Chinese 5-spice powder; whisk until thoroughly combined.
  • Fit pie crust in a 9-inch pie plate and crimp edges.
  • Pour filling into the pie shell and lightly tap on the work surface to release any air bubbles.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes
  • Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake until just set in the middle, 30 to 40 more minutes. A paring knife inserted into the filling, 1 inch from the crust, should come out clean. Allow to cool completely before serving.
