Its pumpkin time again..


I have to re-post this every year its my favorite thing to make and eat!this year I will add some other ingredients just to spice it up you decide 
if your up for change ...changes in yellow

Agave Pumpkin Pie Recipes
1 crust
3 eggs
1/4 cup of raw (dark)agave (Used maple syrup& spoonful honey)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
pinch of ground clove
2 cups of fresh cooked pumpkin (*Added a sweet potato to recipe*)

2 cups of organic half-and-half

Preparing the pumpkin:
Cook pumpkin day before or 2-4hrs before put in fridge
Cut the "sweet" pumkin in 1/2
take seeds out w/spoon
lay on a cookie sheet shell rounded side facing up pulp down,
roast @400 for 45-60min or until completely soft all around.
scoop 2 cups,use hand blend or blender to puree
OK IF YOU Want to use organic canned pumpkin just, don't tell me...hehe

Making the Crust
1 1/8 cups of whole wheat flour (20% coconut flour with Spelt flour or rice flour)
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 teaspoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter
cut into 8 pieces
4 tablespoons ice water,+ more if necessary

Combine flour ,salt and sift
add butter, I use my hands to break up the butter and flower mixture so it looks like cornmeal,if you have a food processor you can use it for about 10 sec
place mixture in a bowl sprinkle the water as needed
(note : whole wheat flour you need a bit more water)
form into a ball ,wrap in plastic,flatten into a small disc
10min freezer or 30min in the fridge
After ,roll on flat surface dust extra flour to avoid sticking
place in favorite pie pan,decorate edges as you like, (optional, freeze 10 min)
make sure to prick the crust with a fork all over before you bake
bake for 10-15 min till golden brown,use foil dry beans or rice as a
weight, prevent crust from rising.
Prepare filling:
Beat the eggs with agave
add spices and salt,stir in cool pumpkin puree than half-&-half
put in a med sauce pan on stove med-low flame ,
stir occasionally ,till hot to touch
do not boil,if you want it a little sweeter add more agave
while warming or when you serve it.
Add mixture to still hot pre baked pie shell
Bake @375 for 30-40 min cover crust edges with tin foil.
Serve with fresh whipped cream!YUMMMMM!!!!!

You can substitute some ingredients use earth Balance butter substitute or coconut oil balance for crust If you can't eat wheat use rice flour they have a good crust recipe on the bag please use organic ,butter,milk, eggs or free range eggs if you can
NO sugar or sugar chemical substitutes use AGAVE,Maple syrup,honey ..go natural it  taste good!
