Gourmet Girls Pie

1 1/3 cup all-purpose gluten-free baking flour
1 tsp xanthan gum
½ tsp salt
½ cup chilled palm oil shortening
3-6 Tbsp ice cold water

Blend flour, xanthan gum and salt in medium bowl. Cut shortening into small pieces and, using a pastry blender, cut into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Sprinkle half the water over the flour mixture. Using a fork, gently blend, adding more water as needed until dough holds together. Roll dough out to fit pie pan.

¾ cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ginger
¼ tsp cloves
2 large eggs
15oz pumpkin puree
12oz non-dairy creamer of choice (or rice or almond milk)

Mix sugar and spices in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl, then stir in pumpkin and spices. Gradually blend in creamer.

Pour into unbaked pie shell and bake in preheated 425-degree oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 and bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Enjoy!
