How to Make Pumpkin Pie from Scratch

If you want to make pumpkin pie from scratch, the recipe you have to follow is the same as the above. The only difference is that to make homemade pumpkin pie from scratch, you will have to make the pie crust at home rather than buying an unbaked one. Let us take a look at the method of making the crust.

Ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoons whipped cream
  • 1 stick of cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour or wheat flour
  • 4 ounces powdered sugar
  • 4 ounces ice water
  • Pinch of kosher salt
Preparation:

Take wheat flour, powdered sugar, and kosher salt in a bowl and mix them using a hand blender. This should be followed by pieces of butter, which also have to be blended with the other ingredients. When lumps begin to form on the mixture, add the cream and blend again until it takes the form of a biscuit dough. Transfer the dough in a plate and make a ball out of it. Once this is done, flatten the dough in the shape of a plate. Put the crust in a plastic bag and place it in the fridge for half an hour. After thirty minutes, take the dough out and line it with foil. Do not forget to make tiny holes with a fork on the crust. Place the crust in the oven and bake it for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the oven, take away the foil and keep it for baking for 10-15 minutes until it turns golden or brown. Cool the crust on a wire rack and then continue to make the pie according to the directions given above.
