For the Crust

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter sliced
  • 1 tbs maple syrup
  • 6 tbs cold water give or take

For the Filling

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 cups pumpkin puree canned works fine too
  • 2 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg


  • To make the crust, mix the flour and salt in a large bowl.
  • Pour the flour mixture into a food processor and add the cold butter. Process the mixture until you have a crumbly, course meal.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of maple syrup plus 4 tablespoons of cold water and process. The texture may still be crumbly. Keep adding water one tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together into a ball. Don’t add so much water that the texture becomes sticky.
  • Carefully remove the dough from the food processor and divide into two balls. Flatten the balls into discs and cover each disc with wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Remove the dough and roll it out on a floured work surface. Each piece of dough should be large enough to place in a 9-inch pie pan.
  • Carefully transfer the dough to the pie pans and decorate the edging as desired.
  • To make the filling, whisk together the filling ingredients until they’re well combined. Pour half the filling mixture into each crust.
  • Bake the pies for 60 to 70 minutes, or until the filling is set. Start checking them a little before 60 minutes and you’ll see that the middle is still a bit jiggly. Keep checking until the middle no longer jiggles when you gently shake the pan. (Note: It may take up to 90 minutes depending on your oven.)
  • Cool before cutting. Serve warm or refrigerate.


The crust is adapted from the recipe on Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour package.
