- 2 cups of Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Power Cakes Flapjack and Waffle Mix
- 1 cup cold, unsalted butter, organic and grass-fed
- About 8 tablespoons of ice water
- 2-3/4 cups pumpkin puree (1 1/2 15-ounce cans yield 2 3/4 cups)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
- 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
- 2-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot powder
- 1- 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or sub mix of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg & cloves)
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- To prepare crust, put Kodiak Cakes in a large bowl, Cut cold butter into small pieces and add to mix. Cut butter into mix using pastry cutter until butter is the size of peas.
- Make a well in center of mix and add cold water by tablespoons. Combine just until the dough sticks together and forms a ball.
- Divide the dough in half. (After this point you may wrap and chill the dough if you want) Or, on a floured surface*, roll dough into a large circle. Place in the pie tin and crimp the edges with your fingers.
- For the second pie, repeat with other half of dough, or refrigerate or freeze for another use.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare pie filling.
- Add all pie ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Set aside.
- If you chose to chill the dough remove from fridge and roll out the crust, unwrap and place it between two sizable layers of wax paper or on a floured surface. Use a rolling pin to gently roll it into the shape of your pie pan.
- To transfer the crust, remove the top layer of wax paper and gently lay the pie dish face down on top of the crust and use the support of the wax paper to quickly but carefully invert it.
- Place in a pie tin and crimp edges
- Pour filling into pie crust and bake for 58-65 minutes. The crust should be light golden brown and the filling will still be just a bit jiggly and have some cracks on the top.**Remove from oven and let cool completely before loosely covering and transferring to the refrigerator to fully set for 4-6 hours, preferably overnight.
- Slice and serve with coconut whipped cream, whip cream and/or an additional sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, and/or pumpkin pie spice (optional).
*Roll dough out onto a floured piece of parchment to make it easier to transport into pie tin
** If the pie crust begins to brown before filling is done lightly cover pie with tinfoil and continue to cook.
