Unbaked homemade pie crust

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp butter, cold and cubed
  • 23 Tbsp milk


To serve:


  1. Preheat oven to 425F

Prepare homemade pie crust.

  1. Combine flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the paddle attachment, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  2. Add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time JUST until the mixture comes together to form a ball.
  3. Breaking off a piece about the size of a golf ball, pat the crust into the bottom and sides of a pie pan.
  4. Prick the bottom and sides of the crust with a fork and bake for 2 min.

Prepare pumpkin pie filling.

  1. Combine all of the filling ingredients in a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer.
  2. When the pie crust is pre-baked, pour the filling into the crust and bake at 425F for 15 min reduce oven temp to 350 degrees and bake for 50-60 min, or until the crust is brown and the center of the pie is no longer jiggly.
  3. Remove from the oven to cool completely, for at least 2 hours. The pie will firm up as it cools.


  • Let this pie cool COMPLETELY. It is super important to let the filling set so you get pretty slices when you serve dessert.
  • Make this recipe ahead of time! Store it in the fridge and let it come to room temperature before serving.
