Step 3: Step 1: the Crust

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Grate in the butter and mix it well with a fork or pastry blender until you get little pea sized crumbs. Add the water a little at a time while stirring until a dough ball starts to form then work it a little with your hand. You may want to let it rest for a while (15 minutes) before rolling out. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a floured surface until it's about 1/4 inch thick. Cover the the pie pan with the rolled out dough, leave a little extra dough over the sides to allow for shrinkage. Set aside.

Step 4: Step 2: the Filling

In a medium mixing bowl with a whisk, mix together the pumpkin puree, condescend milk, sugar, vanilla and eggs. Once that's all well whisked together, pour your filling into the prepared pie shell.

Step 5: Step 3: the Baking

Bake the pie in a oven set to 375 degrees for about 50 minutes. Once it's set, you can tell by how firm it is in the centre, you can trim the excess dough with a knife. Serve it up with your favourite whip cream. I hope you enjoy this recipe and show your support by subscribing to my channel.
