- 2 cups flour (we used white whole wheat)
- 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/3 cup cold coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1 (15 ounce) can pureed pumpkin
- 4 egg whites
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground clove
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoon pure maple syrup
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 cup evaporated fat-free milk
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In large bowl, add flour, salt, and cold coconut oil. Ensure the oil is cold and solid by storing in the refrigerator until ready to use. Using a fork, break the oil into the flour mix until powdery and only pea sized chunks remain. Add Greek yogurt, vinegar, and maple syrup. Carefully mix, add in water one tablespoon at a time until dough can be formed into a ball. The dough should not be sticky, just able to hold together in a ball form.
- On a floured surface, roll dough to 1/4 inch thick. Carefully transfer to a pie pan. Prick with a fork and cover with foil. Place a weight, such as an empty second pan or dry beans, on top of the foil. Bake 15 minutes.
- Combine all ingredients and whisk until smooth. Pour into partially baked crust (as prepared above). Bake 30 to 40 minutes until set (the pie filling will barely jiggle when lightly shook).
- Allow to set and cool completely, preferably overnight, before slicing and serving.
