This makes a pumpkin pie that’s just a little richer than the usual recipe with just the right amount of spice!




  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup shortening, butter, or lard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 34 tablespoons cold water


  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  2. Fit in shortening (or other fat) with a pastry blender, two butter knives, or using a food processor until the texture resembles small peas
  3. Sprinkle water over the mixture, a tablespoon at a time, lightly stirring with a fork until just moist enough to hold together, too little water and the dough will crack, too much water and the dough will be sticky and tough
  4. Form into a ball and flatten until 3/4 inch thick on a floured surface
  5. Roll into a circle 1 inch larger than 8 or 9-inch pie pan
  6. Fold pastry in half, transfer to pan

  8. Fold edges under to create a standing rim, flute


  1. Combine all ingredients until evenly mixed using a whisk, wooden spoon, or mixer
  2. Pour into pie shell
