Adjust the crust in the pan and make sure the edges are evenly elevated to cover the sides.

Use a fork to poke a hole in the crust, then put it in the frezeer for about 30 minutes.

In a bowl add the flour, salt, spices and sugar then mix.

Add the eggs and mix again.

Add the pumpkin puree and the apple sauce and mix.

Get the crust out of the frezeer and pour the mixture on top of it.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for about 50 minutes.

Let the pie cool before cutting.

Slice the pie & serve it with a scoop of ice cream.
