For the pie crust

  • 1 1/4 cups flour, plus more for rolling
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons ice water

For the filling

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 2 large eggs
  • 15 oz. canned pumpkin
  • 12 oz. evaporated milk

    Preheat oven to 425° F. To make pie crust, add flour, cinnamon, ginger, sugar, salt and cloves to bowl of a food processor fitted with dough blade. Pulse to combine.

    Cut cold butter into cubes and add to food processor. Pulse until mixture has pea-sized clumps of butter throughout.
  • 3
    Pour 4 tablespoons cold water over mixture and pulse until dough begins to come together. Be careful not to overmix at this point. Dump dough onto a clean, floured work surface.
