I forgot my pumpkin pie on the counter last night. Is it safe to serve if it was left out of the fridge for 15 hours?

I used this recipe (which includes milk, eggs, and cream) http://food52.com/recipes...

Do I need to start over and bake another pie?

I am not a food safety expert, however my mother always made the pies the night before and left them on the counter overnight and through Thanksgiving Day till we cut into them. I Now I do the same thing. No one has ever died so I'm guessing it's pretty safe. Also, bakery pies in the store sit out unrefrigerated for days...again leading me to believe that your pie will be fine.

This is a tough call, but the FDA doesn't recommend leaving custard pies out for more than 2 hours, so starting over would be the safest route. Luckily it comes together fast, so you probably still have time!

Technically, you can't, but practically, you can. Just eat it and enjoy it. Everyone will be fine. :)

This question is long past. But my pie has been sitting out for almost 3 days now and is still delicious. As long as it is in a coolest environment and covered, i think it is fine. Keeping the pie in the fridge is such a recent idea. Previously. You would have a pie safe, which is just a cupboard to keep the flies away
