Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Every good pie starts with a good crust. Let’s start by making a delicious buttery pie crust.
- ¾ cup cold butter
- ½ cup of ice water
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 ½ cups flour
- Add your flour and salt to a large mixing bowl
- Dice the butter and add to flour mixture
- Take a pastry cutter and cut the butter into the flour until you have coarse crumbles
- Gradually add in your ice water until you can form a ball of dough
- Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight
Pumpkin Pie Filling
