    Shape dough into a disk and cover in plastic wrap.

  • Step 7

    Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

  • Step 8

    When ready to roll out dough, remove for 15 minutes prior to rolling, and roll into a 12-inch circle for a 9-inch pie.

Filling 7 Steps

  • Step 1

    Combine pumpkin puree and brown sugar in a saucepan and cook on low to medium heat for 40-45 minutes until the mixture becomes very thick and dark. Let cool slightly for about 10 minutes and mix in spices (ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt).

  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Step 3

    Add in evaporated milk and condensed milk. Mix together eggs, egg yolk, cream and vanilla and pour this milk-egg mixture into pumpkin mixture.

  • Step 4

    Use whisk and make sure filling is smooth, may require you to whisk for at least 3 minutes vigorously.

  • Step 5

    Pour pumpkin filling into 9-inch prepared pie plate with uncooked pie crust.

  • Step 6

    Bake for 50-60 minutes in preheated oven, or until the custard is just set. The edges of the custard will puff up a little and the centre should still have a little wiggle to it.

  • Step 7

    Let cool for at least 2 hours and serve at room temp or chilled. Pie tastes just as good the next day. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
