Ingredients

Filling:

  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin spice)
  • 3/4 C full fat coconut milk 
  • 3 eggs 
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ceylon cinnamon 
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp real vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon all-spice

Crust:

  • 2 C of cassava flour
  • 1/2 tsp slt 
  • 1 C butter (unsalted) 
  • 1 TBS apple cider vinegar
  • 2 TBS ice cold water
  • 3 TBS maple syrup 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Make the crust: place the flour and salt in a bowl and whisk to combine. 
  • Sprinkle butter over the flour in small chunks then use your hands to bring the flour and butter together into an almost bread-crumb-like texture. 
  • Pour the maple syrup in and use your hands to mix it into the flour.
  • Tablespoon by tablespoon sprinkle water over the flour, mixing with your hands in between each addition of water until a dough forms. 
  • Roll into a large ball then place on some parchment paper and flatten before wrapping up and placing in the freezer for 10 minutes. 
  • Whilst dough rests in the freezer make your filling by combining all the ingredients together in a food processor, high-speed blender or simply by whisking until smooth. 
  • Take dough out of the freezer after 10 minutes and roll out to the width of the tart pan you are using and relatively thin, (you don’t want a thick pie crust). I use a 9″ tart pan. 
  • Place dough on the tart pan and press down to form around base and edges. Don’t worry if the dough breaks as you’re placing it in the pan, just use your fingers to patch it up and it will be fine. 
  • Place tart shell in the oven and blind bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove tart shell from the oven and pour filling in. Place back in the oven for 50 minutes to 1 hour. The pie should only slightly jiggle when it’s ready to come out. 
  • Allow to cool before placing in the fridge. Ideally wait until the pie is chilled through to consume.
