Sprinkle liberally with nutmeg.
Place filled pie shell on a sheet pan and put into your preheated 450 degree oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Turn the oven temperature down to 350 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves

*Milk-Free Pumpkin Pie
Replace the evaporated milk and 2 eggs with 3 eggs and unsweetened coconut milk in the following manner: Crack 3 eggs into a 2 cup liquid measuring cup. Add enough unsweetened coconut milk to measure 1 ¾ cup of liquid. Whisk the eggs and coconut milk together until fully blended and add to the pumpkin-sugar-spice mixture. Continue using the above directions.
Pie Crust Pastry
2 ¼ cups West Meadow Farm Multi Purpose Flour
½ cup (1 stick) butter*
½ cup vegetable shortening
1 Tbsp cider vinegar
¼ cup water
Place the flour in to the mixing bowl. Cut in butter and shortening with a fork or pastry blender until it resembles peas. Beat the egg, vinegar and water with a fork. Stir into the flour mixture and form a ball. Portion out a baseball-sized ball of dough and on a well floured (gluten-free flour) piece of waxed paper or parchment paper pat it into a disc and roll with a rolling pin to the size about 1 ½-2 inches larger than your inverted pie pan. Carefully hold the inverted pie pan over the dough, slip your free hand under the waxed/parchment paper and gingerly flip the dough into the pan in a smooth motion bringing the pie pan to a right-side-up position. Fill your pie crust with desired filling. Bake in preheated oven the prescribed time for your particular pie.
*Milk-Free Pie Crust
Using the recipe above substitute either margarine or shortening for the butter in equal measure.
