Mix dry ingredients. Add oil. Add milk. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour minimum. Roll out between two sheets of wax paper and/or press into 9" pie plate. Fill with pumpkin. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then 375 for 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted at center comes out clean. Also makes five 4 inch tarts (as shown in photos). Cool on rack.

Oh my goodness! That is beautiful. I put coconut milk in mine, but maybe I should have added coconut on top - looks too yummy!
