Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • OR 2/3 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons ice water
  • Time Saving Option:
  • Frozen pie shells or ready made refrigerated pie dough
  • Filling:
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
