Ingredients

Crust

  • 6 tbsp cold vegan butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3-6 tbsp cold water

Filling

  • 2 cups pumpkin puree See notes for homemade pumpkin puree!
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice See notes for pumpkin spice recipe!

Instructions

Crust

  • Mix salt in flour and cut butter into flour with fork
  • Add enough water (about 3-6 tbsp) until the dough scrapes from bowl
  • Remove from bowl and mold together with hand on a floured surface
  • Form into ball and put in tight seal container and refrigerate while you make the filling about 20 minutes

Filling

  • Mix all filling ingredients in the blender with a few pulses until smooth
  • Roll out the crust on a pastry cloth/ wax paper/ parchment paper in shape of your 10” pie pan (if it cracks, just reform with your hands)
  • Transfer the crust to the pan by laying the pie dish on the crust and using the cloth/paper as support to quickly invert it
  • Then use your hands to form into pan (DON’T OVERWORK THE DOUGH) and align the edge of the pie pan and dough with your hands by removing the excess dough
  • Pour filling into pie crust and bake 350ºF for about 55 minutes or until the crust is lightly golden and the filling is still a bit jiggly and has some small cracks on top
  • Cool before serving (you can refrigerate for a few hours)

Notes

  • You can make your own pumpkin puree by baking a small pumpkin cut in half placed face down in the oven for an hour, then scope and scrape the baked pumpkin off the pumpkin skin.
  • You can make your own pumpkin spice by mixing ½ teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon nutmeg,¼ teaspoon ginger,  and ⅛ teaspoon cloves.
