You will need:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup softened butter
3 tablespoons cold water
Stir together flour and salt in large bowl; cut in butter with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, stir in the water until flour is just moistened. Shape dough into a ball; flatten ball slightly. Using a rolling pin, roll out ball on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough into 9-inch pie pan; unfold, pressing firmly against bottom and sides. Use a fork or your thumb to crimp edges. Pour in prepared pumpkin mixture and bake.
