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?

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

Well, we went ahead and ate it! Thanks, guys. It was still delicious and nobody felt ill at all.

I made one with pumpkin, eggs, and whipping cream on Wednesday. Super early Friday morning I had a piece and noticed at the last bite something was slightly off. Two hours later, the pie was visibly off and smelled rank in the kitchen. Oops! I could have sworn my grandma's pies were always on the counter, but I realized she used canned ingredients - but I certainly threw the rest away. So far, the last bit I ate hasn't come back to haunt me and it's been almost a whole day.... (eep!)
