How to make it

  • To make the dough: place flour, sugar and salt in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Add butter to the bowl. Rub the cold chunks of butter between your fingertips or use a pastry cutter until mixture resembles flakes of fat.
  • Drizzle 3 tbs. ice water over the flour mixture. Stir with spatula or fork adding 1 tbs. more water if necessary, until the mixture froms a shaggy dough that's moist enough to hold together when pressed between your fingers.
  • With well floured hands gather and press the dough together and form it into a disk. Wrap dough in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour but upto 2 to 4 hours before rolling.
  • After chilling roll out dough place in 9 inch pie pan. Flute pie crust edge. Place aluminum foil over pie crust and place uncooked beans or pie weights on foil. Position rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Bake 15 min; remove the foil and the beans or weights. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F. Bake until the bottom looks dry but is not quite done and the edges are light golden, 5 to 7 min more.
  • Let cool on a rack while you prepare filling.

  • Position rack in the center of the oven. Set a heavy duty rimmed baking sheet on the rack, and heat the oven to 425 degress F.
  • In a large bowel whisk the pumpkin, coconut milk, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg until smooth. Whisk in the eggs and then the rum, until the mixture is smooth. Pour the filling into the piecrust.
  • Put the pie on the heated baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes and then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake until the center of the pie no longer wobbles when the pan is nudged, an additional 45 to 55 min.

    Will try the coconut milk instead of condensed milk.
    and the spiced rum is a nice addition as well.
