Jill’s Pumpkin Pie
Note: For custard style pies I have learned that pre-baking crust partially will give you a nice flaky crust on the bottom. You may also need to cover crust half way through baking pie, to keep from over browning. A little extra effort, but so worth it!
Pie Crust (Makes 2 – 10” deep-dish pie crusts)

Ingredients:

3 – cups flour, plus a bit more for rolling
½ – teaspoon salt
1 – tablespoon sugar
¾ – lb. salted butter, chilled and cut into pieces, plus a little more softened for buttering pan and foil
1 – egg, beaten
1 – teaspoon cider vinegar or lemon juice *I use half of each.
2 – tablespoons cream
1 – ice cube

Preparation:

1 – Pre-heat oven to 450°.
2 – In mixer using pastry blender, mix flour, salt & sugar.
3 – In small dish, beat eggs. Add vinegar and cream and mix well. Add ice cube to mixture to keep cold, and allow ice to melt almost all the way.
4 – Add chilled butter to flour mixture until incorporated.
5 – Slowly drizzle in egg mixture.
6 – Remove dough from mixer with floured hands, shape into ball and cut in half.
7 – Press dough into disk shape with your hands and place dough onto floured parchment. Top dough with additional floured parchment and roll out.
8 – Transfer dough to buttered pie pan carefully. Press lightly into pan, crimp edges and pierce the dough randomly with a fine pronged fork, about 8 times.
9 – Chill the piecrust for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
10 – Lightly butter foil and place buttered side down on top of piecrust, shaping foil in piecrust shape without disturbing edges. Fill foiled crust at least half way up with dried beans, rice or pie weights.
11 – Place in 450° pre-heated oven and bake for 25 minutes.
Remove foiled piecrust from oven and remove foil gently. Return piecrust to oven to allow the bottom to brown, about another 10 minutes.
12 – Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before filling.

Pumpkin Pie Filling
A few extra ingredients for a richer, creamer filling. Enjoy.

Ingredients:

3 – eggs
1¼ – cup dark, pure cane brown sugar, packed
½ – cup sour cream
½ – cup heavy cream
¼ – cup pure maple syrup
1 – teaspoon vanilla
1 – tablespoon cinnamon
1 – teaspoon ginger
1 – teaspoon allspice
4 – cups pureed pumpkin or canned pumpkin
*Yams or butternut squash can be used too.

Preparation:

1 – In mixer, beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients in order with mixer running, stopping to scrape the bottom occasionally. Mix until well incorporated.
2 – Pour pumpkin mixture into prepared piecrust.
3 – Bake at 350° for 75 minutes. Increase heat to 450° and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
4 – Remove pie from oven and allow to cool for 2 hours before serving.

Thank you to Aggie W. for sharing this hint……….

For your next party try freezing red and green maraschino cherries in ice cubes. You can also do this with cocktail onions, mint leaves or green olives for martinis. Enjoy the party!

Having a party or grilling out, remember this handy hint……

 
To keep ice cubes from melting at the part, put them in a bowl, and then set that bowl in a larger one filled with dry ice.

I had posted this one previously but I’m passing it along again. Great idea for your Christmas or New Year’s dinners and parties……

 

If you want to keep your wine (or other beverages) cool, use frozen grapes instead of ice cubes. They’ll keep the drink cold and won’t dilute it or change the taste as they thaw. Just make sure you wash them before freezing!

To jazz up those mixed drinks and iced teas, freeze whole berries, fresh mint, or citrus slices in ice-cube trays filled with water.

Don’t throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
