Pumpkin Pie!


Pâte Brisée
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 cup ice water
Pumpkin Filling
2 cups pumpkin purée (canned or pure pumpkin)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cream Topping - Crème Chantilly


Prepare the pie shell. Put flour, salt, and sugar into the food processor until mixed. Add butter until the mixture looks like coarse meal. Pour 1/4 cup ice water slowly, do not process more than 30 seconds. Wrap into a ball in plastic wrap, refrigerate for 1 hour. Roll the dough onto a floured surface into a circle big enough to fit the pie dish. Transfer to pie pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 425 F.While you wait, begin making the filling. Cook the pumpkin purée over medium heat until it browns (if using pure pumpkin, remove seeds, and blend in a food processor first). Whisk eggs in a bowl lightly, then add purée and the rest of the ingredients.
Remove dough from the refrigerator.
Pour pumpkin purée into pie crust. Tuck away excess crust underneath and crimp the edges with your fingers. Bake for 30 min. Cover the edges of the pie with foil. Bake another 20 min. Let pie sit a few hours to cool and to set. Serve with Crème Chantilly or Vanilla Ice Cream.
