Perfect Pumpkin Pie Recipe

  • Never Fail Pie Crust Recipe (single crust)
  • 3 eggs     
  • 2-3 teas pumpkin pie spice
  • 15 oz Pumpkin (not Pumpkin pie) 
  • 1 stick butter, melted
    1 cup sugar    
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
    ¼ teas salt
Preheat oven to 425 F. Make a single pie crust and put in pie plate. Mix all remaining ingredients thoroughly in a bowl. Pour into uncooked pie shell. Cook in preheated oven at 425 for 15 minutes. Turn oven down to 350 F and bake an additional 50 minutes. No need to put knife in – it is perfect every time!   I prefer to eat the pie chilled with whip cream. Refrigerate leftovers.

Never Fail Pie Crust Recipe

Single Pie Crust:

1 ¼ cups flour
½ teas salt
1/3 cup shortening
4-5 TAB ice-cold water


2 cups flour
¾ teas salt
2/3 cup shortening
6-7 TAB ice-cold water
cut in the shortening / lard / crisco

In bowl, combine flour & salt; cut in the shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, towing with a fork until a ball forms. Chill dough. Do not over mix or add more flour than necessary.

the trick is to not over handle the dough

Roll out pastry with chilled rolling pan to fit a pie pan. (Do NOT over handle!!) Flute edges if desired. Hint: Cover edges of pie when baking until the last 20 minutes or baking.
