Ingredients

FOR THE PIE FILLING

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups pumpkin
  • 1 cup coconut cream (dont shake the can and just use the cream at the top of the can. Not the water)

FOR THE STEUSEL TOPPING

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup crystallized ginger

FOR THE PASTRY

  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/8 baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter , cold and diced (or vegetable shortening)
  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup cold water plus a tablespoon or two more if needed

Instructions

MAKE THE PASTRY

  1. In a small bowl, add the egg and break it up with a fork. Add the vinegar and the cold water. Set it in the fridge till you are ready for it to keep it cold.

  2. In a bowl or your mixer, add the dry ingredients.  Then add the cold butter. Pulse in your mixer till it resembles small peas, or break up with a pastry cutter by hand.

  3. Add the liquid slowly and mix till just combined.  Pour out on to a surface and mold into a ball. Wrap it in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 1/2 an hour. 1 hour is better.

  4. After an hour, roll out the pie crust so that it fits a 9 inch pie plate. Leave a little around the edges so that you can pinch them and make the edges look pretty :)  Put the pie crust in the fridge till the filling is ready.

MAKE THE FILLING

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients (sugar and spices) in a bowl.  Next add the eggs, pumpkin, and coconut cream. Mix well and pour into the pie crust.  Bake pie for 15 mins to start, then cover with tinfoil to stop the edges from turning too brown. Bake for another 25 mins.

  3. In the meantime, make the streusel topping.

MAKE THE TOPPING

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and cut the butter in with a pastry cutter till it resembles coarse peas.
  2. After the second bake time, take the pie out and cover with the streusel topping. Bake for another 20 mins, but make sure to keep the tin foil on to protect the edges.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely before serving.
