  1. FOR THE CRUST ~ Whisk together the flour & salt, then with a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the flour & butter mixture resembles coarse meal.

  3. When dough has chilled, roll it out to an 11-inch circle & fit it into a 9-inch pie plate, trimming & crimping the edges.
  4. Refrigerate the pie plate while making the filling.
  5. FOR THE PUMPKIN FILLING ~ Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. In a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beat brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, ginger & cloves until well mixed.
  7. Add in the egg, egg white & vanilla, mixing until smooth, then beat in the pumpkin & then the light cream.
  8. Pour this filling into the chilled pastry shell & bake 40 minutes or until the center is set.
  9. Remove from the oven & cool the pie on a wire rack until it is room temperature.
  10. FOR THE CHOCOLATE TOPPING ~ Place chocolate in a small bowl.
  11. In a small saucepan, bring heavy cream & granulated sugar to a simmer, then stir until sugar is dissolved.
