Pumpkin Pie

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/pumpkin_pie.html

With a fraction of the fat, this lighter pumpkin pie has the rich, subtle spices of the classic and a delicate, faintly sweet crust.

8 servings | Active Time: 45 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. To make crust: Stir together flour, granulated sugar and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, swirling the pan, until the butter is light brown, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl to cool. Stir in oil. Slowly stir the butter-oil mixture into the dry ingredients with a fork until the dough is crumbly. Gradually stir in ice water, adding just enough so that the dough will hold together. Press the dough into a flattened disk.
  2. Place two sheets of plastic wrap on the work surface, overlapping them by 2 inches. Place the dough in the center and cover with 2 more overlapping sheets of plastic wrap. Roll the dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Remove the top sheets and invert the dough over a 9-inch pie plate. Remove the remaining plastic wrap. Fold the edges under at the rim and crimp. Chill the pastry while you prepare the filling.
  3. To make filling: Position rack in the lower third of the oven; preheat to 425°F. Whisk together pumpkin, eggs, evaporated milk and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Mix brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Rub through a sieve into pumpkin mixture and whisk until incorporated.
  4. Pour the filling into the prepared crust and bake for 12 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350° and bake until the filling is set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes longer. During baking, cover the edges with foil if they are browning too quickly. Cool on a rack.
