Pumpkin pie, a classic Thanksgiving dessert. When this bad boy goes into the oven your house smells more hipster than your local coffee shop on October 1. #pumpkinspice But in all seriousness this pie is designed to impress your family with a straight forward and pseudo health conscious approach.
1 ½ cup Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free Flour
¼ tsp baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
6 TBS (⅔ stick) butter, chopped and chilled
½ cup Greek yogurt
Cold water as necessary
15 oz can pumpkin puree
⅔ cup full fat coconut milk
3 TBS maple syrup
3 TBS coconut sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 TBS pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 egg yolk
Pinch of salt
Whipped cream and cinnamon optional for a garnish.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Make the crust:
- Add all of the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Cut in the cold chopped butter and smash it in until the butter is completely coated with the dry ingredients. Mix in the yogurt until everything is combined.
- The crust will be crumbly at this point, so the next step is kneading it all together on a hard floured surface. Add in ice water as necessary to create a dough consistency. For reference, I used 2 tablespoons of water.
- Once the dough is kneaded, use a rolling pin dusted with flour to create a circle that is even thickness.
- Place the dough into a greased 9” glass pie pan. To do this, I will roll the dough onto my rolling pin, and then unroll over the pie pan for convenient placement.
- After the pie crust is pressed into place, using a fork, poke holes in the bottom of the crust.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
While the crust is baking, it is time to start the filling.
- Mix all of the ingredients, minus the eggs, into a large mixing bowl.
- Once everything is combined, wisk in the eggs and egg yolk one at a time.
- Pour the mixture into the prebaked pie crust and put back into the oven for approximately 50 minutes. When the filling no longer giggles, it is an indicator it is done. **A “pro” tip during baking is to cover the edges of the pie crust with aluminum foil to avoid burning.
Let the pie cool for 10-15 minutes and enjoy.
