The World Record For Largest Pumpkin Pie Is Ridiculously Massive

Even if you consider yourself a pumpkin pie connoisseur, those who really love the baked treat probably wouldn't be able to put a dent in the world's largest one. No matter how many trips to the dessert table you make or how many pastries your family may go through each Thanksgiving, chances are they don't compare to the sheer size of the pumpkin pie that broke the Guinness World Record set on September 25, 2010.

Apparently the New Bremen Giant Pumpkin Growers of the U.S. set a new record during the New Bremen Pumpkinfest in, you guessed it, New Bremen, Ohio. According to the Guinness World Records, the incredible pumpkin pie weighed in at a whopping 3,699 pounds. Previously, the record had been a mere 2,020 pounds (via Pumpkin Nook). That means they didn't just break the record, they completely shattered it. In total, their pumpkin pie weighed 1,679 pounds more than the previous record-setting pumpkin pie.

This is how they made the truly massive pumpkin pie

Naturally, it took a lot of hands and even more ingredients to bring the gargantuan pumpkin pie to life. In a photo shared to Facebook, it appears a total of nine pastry chefs were behind the actual making of the pumpkin pie. Together, the group made not only a pastry that was surprisingly heavy, but it was incredibly wide too. The diameter of the pumpkin pie was a wide-reaching 20 feet across. That's roughly half the height of a telephone pole or three-quarters the length of a red London bus, according to The Measure of Things.

But what's more impressive is the amount of ingredients that went into the baked good. While the team used tons of the typical ingredients you would expect in a pumpkin pie filling such as canned pumpkin, eggs, sugar, salt, pumpkin spice, cinnamon and evaporated milk, the crust required hundreds of sheets of dough. In the end, the pastry chefs used 440 sheets of dough to make the massive pie crust (via Guinness World Record). Just imagine how long it must have taken to cook such a huge pie!
