the classic fall tradition and a staple of most thanksgiving dessert tables, the famous pumpkin pie! there’s not much that needs to be said other than delicious.
for this recipe, you do not have to make your own crust if you choose not to. you can skip straight to the recipe for the filling if you have a pre-made crust.
total amount of time: 1.5 hours
INGREDIENTS:
CRUST (makes 2):
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 CRISCO stick (vegetable shortening)
5 tablespoons cold water
PUMPKIN PIE:
6 eggs
4 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 cans evaporated milk
2 pie shells (10 in.)
6 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
DIRECTIONS
CRUST: 
Combine all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until crumbly (if you don’t have a food processor, use a pie crust combiner)
Create one big ball with the combined ingredients - they should stick together
Cut that ball in half to form two, equal sized portions
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour
After chilled, sprinkle flour onto a sheet of tinfoil and onto a rolling pin
Roll out your dough on the tinfoil evenly
Place a pie tin above the rolled out dough, then carefully slide your hand under the tinfoil to flip the dough into the pie tin
Carefully peel off the tinfoil from your pie crust
Be sure to repair any holes or patches by removing the excess dough from the edges of the pie tin
Pinch the tips of the pie crust (near the edges) to form a little ridge
Use your thumb and index/middle finger to create the ripple shape
Poke holes with a fork at the bottom of the dough
It is now ready to be filled
PUMPKIN PIE:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Beat together the eggs, then add in the pumpkin puree and mix well
Gradually add in the sugar while still mixing
Pour in the cans of evaporated milk until all ingredients are well combined
Carefully pour the mixture into the pie shells or pie crust
Bake for 15 minutes in the oven
After 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 degrees for another 45-55 minutes until done
enjoy!
