Servings - 6 servings


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • 4-5 Tbsp cold water
  • 1 tsp cold vinegar


  • Combine the flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut in the butter or margarine with a pastry blender or two knives, until small, pea-sized balls have formed.
  • In a cup, stir together the 5 tablespoon of cold water and the cold vinegar.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of the cold water-vinegar at a time to the flour and butter mixture, tossing with a fork. Once the crust dough thickens, knead it gently.
  • Form the dough into a ball and then place onto plastic wrap.  Fold the plastic wrap around the dough and freeze for 10 minutes. Then place in the refrigerator until ready to roll out.
  • Roll out on a cinnamon-floured surface. Fold into quarters to move it into the greased pie plate.
  • Bake at 425 F for 7 to 8 minutes, then add the filling and follow baking directions from the recipe on the pumpkin can.
  • Enjoy your pie!
