8 servings

  • Pie Crust:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon butter flavored shortening, chilled
  • 1/3 cup ice water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Filling:
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 (16-ounce) can pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • Pecan Crumble Topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Chill all ingredients, including the flour and vinegar. Combine the flour, salt and sugar. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles cornmeal. In another bowl, mix water and vinegar with the beaten egg. Add the liquid mixture, one tablespoon at a time, to the flour mixture, tossing with a fork to form a soft dough.

  • Shape into 3 disks. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator at least 3 hours, before attempting to roll out. (Overnight actually works best). Hold no more than 3 days in refrigerator. For longer storage, place in a freezer bag and freeze. Use one disk for a single crust pie. Use 2 disks for a double crust pie. To roll out for pies, work quickly on a floured pastry cloth. Flip the dough at least once adding a little more flour to the pastry cloth. Roll out to fit pie pan. (Store pastry cloth in freezer).

  • Filling:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Beat eggs until frothy. Add all remaining ingredients in order given, beating only until well blended. Pour filling into crust. Bake for 25 minutes.

  • Topping:

  • Combine topping ingredients. Remove pie from oven and sprinkle topping over filling. Return pie to oven and bake 25 minutes more or until center is set.
