Pellets:  Oak - All Purpose

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients list

Pie Crust:

  • 1 C flour
  • 1/3 C + 2 Tbsp shortening (or lard)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-4 Tbsp cold water

Pie Filling:

  • 1 15 oz. can of pumpkin puree (recommend Libbys)
  • 1-12 oz. can of evaporated milk
  • 3/4 C granulated white sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs

Whipped Topping:

  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Vanilla (approx. 1/2 tsp depending on quantity)
  • Granulated white sugar to taste 

Directions

1.  Preheat grill to 450 degrees F.

2.  In a bowl, combine 1 C of flour, 1/3 C + 2 Tbsp of shortening or lard.  I recommend butter flavored shortening if using shortening and 1/2 tsp of salt.

3.  Cut (don't mix or beat) shortening into flour using either a pastry cutter or two butter knives until they are small pieces cut into flour.

4.  Add 2-4 Tbsp of cold water enough to form a ball.

5.  Flour pastry cloth and roller sock and roll dough on pastry cloth into circle 2-3 inches bigger than bottom of pie pan.

6. Fold rolled out dough in half by using the pastry cloth.  Then fold pastry into a quarter.  It will be easier to maneuver into pie pan.

7. Place rolled dough into pan and sculp edges if desired.

Pumpkin Pie Filling Directions

1.  Blend sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves in small bowl.

2.  Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

3.  Pour into pie pan.

4.  Cover the edge of the crust with thin strip of aluminum foil or pampered chef has a metal rim to avoid burning the crust edge.

5.  Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake for another 40-50 minutes.  Pie is done when you insert a butter knife and it comes out clean.

6.  Add the whipped cream (if desired), serve and enjoy!
