Yield: 1 x 9 inch pie

Ingredients

Pie dough:

Makes 2 batches (you only need one for this pie, so freeze half of the raw pastry dough for another pie!)
2 1/2 cup AP flour
Pinch of salt
1 tsp sugar
250g / 1 cup butter, cold and chopped
1/4-1/2 cup ice water
PLUS 1/2 Cup of cookie crumbs (see instructions when to use this.)

The filling

3 large eggs
2 cups of pumpkin purée or a can of pumpkin purée
1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp of ground ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Instructions

First make the pastry

1. Put flour, salt and sugar in food processor, add butter, pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

2. Slowly add 1/4 cup ice water. Pulse till dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed.
Do not overmix to have a flaky crust. You should see some pieces of butter still.

3. Divide dough into two portions, with dough still crumbly, wrap with 2 pieces of cling wrap to form 2 balls.
Wrap tight, refrigerate till firm. The second portion you can freeze at this point for a later use.

4. Then roll out the pastry and line a 9 inch pie dish with the rolled pastry. Then spread the cookie crumbs on top and firmly press down.

To make the filling & cook the pie

1. Preheat oven to 180C / 350 F / Gas 4

2. Put all the pie filling in a mixing bowl and using a spatula mix till combine.

3. Pour everything in the pie shell and bake for 45 mins. ***I used the excess dough to cut out flowers using a cookie cutter to decorate the sides instead of crimping it.
Using a sharp knife and poke about an inch from the side and it should come out clean. Doesn't matter if the center is a little wobbly. It will set after its cooled.
