How to make it

  • first make crust by sifting flour with salt and sugar
  • cut butter into small bites no bigger then you might want in your mouth, place in the freezer to chill,
  • cut shortning into small bites like a pea, and mix into flour salt and sugar until its kina like wet sand, then add cold butter,mix in tablespoon by tablesppon of cold water until you have a smooth dough, wrap into plastic wrap and place in frigde for an hour
  • to make filling place butter and cream cheese out to come to room temp( this is and importand step to make, if not youll have small pieces of butter and cream cheese all throughout your mixture) then place in a large bowl with sugar and brown sugar, mix with hand mixer for a few minutes add your vanilla salt cinnamon and pie spice, mix well then add your eggs one at a time and egg yolks one at a time, then mix in pumpkin with a wooden spoon or else youll have pumpkin to clean from your celling, clean beaters and whip up your two egg whites youve saved and fold them into your pie mix,
  • let this stand while you work with crust
  • i like to put on a fan while i work with crust so it wont get soft and then bake up hard as a rock
  • so flour your serface and get out dough, break in two thirds
  • place two thirds down and roll out very thin, without breaking it
  • butter and flour a 9 in spring form pan
  • place dough all along the bottom and sides
  • get out your filling and fill to the top
  • pre-heat oven to 325 and bake for an hour in the center of oven
  • with your left over crust roll out very thin and make some leaves or a heart just some decoration use cookie cutter if you have some, rub lots of butter all over it with brown sugar and cinnamon, once your pir is done cool on a cookie rack so your crust will stay crusty and bake your decoration at 400 for about 12 min, take out and carefully place ontop of pie and press down to it just sticks into your pie, its a delicios way to have a crusty decoration ontop cause i hate when the top crust is sooggy (yuck!)
  • enjoy!
