Pumpkin pie is a holiday favorite and a delicious treat anytime of year. You can make pumpkin pie from a homemade pumpkin pie recipe or get a store bought pumpkin pie. If you make your pumpkin pie from scratch though you’ll get to make the whole house smell warm and inviting with the fragrance of pumpkin pie spices.
You can try a simple pumpkin pie recipe that is easy to make with just a few ready made ingredients or you can go all out and make a fresh pumpkin pie using all fresh ingredients and even pumpkins from your own garden.
Here’s a really easy pumpkin pie recipe that you can make yourself.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 stick (4 oz) of unsalted butter
1/4 cup very cold water
Cut cold butter into the flour, salt and sugar and mix with a fork. Add a little bit of the water at a time until the mixture starts to come together. Then form the dough into a large ball. Do not overwork the dough or add too much water.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to form pie crust. Place crust in pie pan and crimp edges.

Healthy Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin pie is a sweet treat but it can be healthy too. Pumpkins are a good source of Beta-Carotene which supports good eye health. Pumpkin is also a good source of fiber to help with digestion and help you feel fuller. Pumpkins also contain Vitamin C which may help the immune system ward off colds and flu or help you recover more quickly.
You can make your pumpkin pie healthy too by choosing low-fat and low-sugar options in the ingredients. There are even gluten-free pie crusts and mixes available for people with a gluten sensitivity.
You can keep your pumpkin pies fresh and looking lovely at the table with a covered pumpkin pie dish. This pumpkin pie dish bottom is oven safe while the decorative pumpkin cover is for the table or fridge only.
