Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 sticks butter softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt

Filling

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 oz evaporated milk
  • 15 oz pumpkin
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice substitute: 1/2 tsp cinnamon + 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the butter, sugar and egg. Mix until creamy. Add flour and salt and stir until combined. Using your fingers (flour them, if needed), press the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
