This is the best holiday pie I've ever tasted, with apple butter, orange and maple flavors mingling with the pumpkin. I use fresh pumpkin if I have a little extra time. —Stan Strom, Gilbert, Arizona

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • FILLING:
  • 2-1/2 cups canned pumpkin (about 19 ounces)
  • 1-1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup apple butter
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix first 4 ingredients; cut in butter and shortening until crumbly. Whisk together egg, water and vinegar; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half so that 1 portion is slightly larger than the other; shape each into a disk. Wrap; refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°. On a lightly floured surface, roll larger portion to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond edge of pie plate. Refrigerate until ready to fill.
  3. Roll smaller portion of dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a small floured pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter; place some cutouts 1 in. apart on a baking sheet, reserving unbaked cutouts for decorative edge if desired. Bake until golden brown, 8-10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, beat together filling ingredients until blended; transfer to crust. Flute or decorate edge with unbaked cutouts, brushing off flour before pressing lightly onto edge. Bake on a lower oven rack 10 minutes. Cover edge loosely with foil. Reduce oven setting to 350°. Bake until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 45-50 minutes.
  5. Cool on a wire rack; serve or refrigerate within 2 hours. Top with baked pumpkin cutouts before serving.
