Pumpkin Pie

The perfect pie begins with the perfect crust-one that is tender and flaky. Cutting the butter into the flour mixture is a key step. The butter must be cold and hard; if it warms up and softens, the flour will absorb it, become sticky and yield a dense, tough crust. We recommend mixing the ingredients in a food processor. It allows you to work quickly so the butter doesn't have a chance to soften. And by running the machine in short pulses, the processor won't heat up and melt the butter.

The Best I've Tried
November 17, 2015
I've tried several different recipes for fillings and pie dough in anticipation of Thanksgiving this year, and by far this is the best of the lot.
One trick I discovered for keeping the custard from cracking is to run your clean fingertip through it in concentric circles right after pouring the filling into the pie shell. That way, if it does crack, the cracking is minimal and just appears as a thin separation along one of the circles you "drew."
This had a fine mix of spices that kept it from being one note and balanced the sweetness. This is the one I'll be making from now on.
Pumpkin pie is my father's favorite, and he said this is the best one he's ever had.

Love the pie...
October 27, 2014
The filling is darker than the store one but definitely more delicious. My husband loved it. Pumpkin Pie is not my first option to eat but this is definitely an excellent recipe.
Pros: Good Value, Easy, Impressive, Will Make Again

Perfect Pumpkin Pie
September 3, 2013
This pie is perfect. I used the Emilie Henry pie dish and the Williams Sonoma pie crust cutters which really make it present well.
I added 1 tbsp of good bourbon to the recipe for an extra kick of spice and it was a success!
I also left out the egg yolks because I didn't have anything to do with the egg whites. I added an extra whole egg in place of the yolks.
Everyone loved it, will make again, and highly recommend!
Pros: Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again

Emilie Henry Pie Dish Question
I just bought the EH pie dish! Was it hard to cut pieces of pie from it with how the edges are fluted? Was the edge of the crust damaged?
