Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla Crust

Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla Crust

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp milk
1/2 cup Vanilla Olive Oil*

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the milk and Olive Oil and mix with a fork.

Pat into a 9 inch pan with your fingertips. Set aside.

Pie Filling:
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 cup milk or cream (I sometimes use chocolate milk!)
2 large eggs
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 15oz can pumpkin puree (you can use the premixed kind, but taste your spices to find out when you have            too much!)

Stir all the ingredients together and pour into your pie crust. Smooth the top.

Bake for 15 minutes. Then reduce the heat to 350 and bake for another 35- 40 minutes. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean when it is done.

*unfortunately, the Vanilla Olive Oil is no longer available. I am very sad. The Meyer Lemon or the Blood Orange would be nice here too.
