Pacsadeli and sometimes Chedraui stock canned pumpkin during the holiday season.

Evaporated milk is available.

Don't know anything about ready-to-bake pie pastry..

I have only seen once in 10 years ready to bake pie crust...so SOL on that one.

 

The only other prepared crust we have here is gram cracker.  Don't think you want that, but just threw it out there.

 

You may have better luck having Linda S. make you the crust then just pick them up.

The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

Though I'm not much of a baker, I do love pumpkin pie. One of the best crusts for PP I've ever made consisted of crushed gingersnaps and butter, made like a graham cracker crust. It's pressed into the pie plate, baked for a bit, and is a great foil for PP.

Are gingersnaps available?

I have seen evaporated milk. Try Chedraui. I have looked for pumpkin for years and have never seen it. Try Pascadelli's. You could use almost any type of squash for a replacement as long as you have the spices. No one would know the difference.  I would use lard for the crust. It tastes better and is now supposed to be good for you and is available everywhere. Good luck.

I made a crust for a key lime pie using crushed Maria cookies,(widely available on the island) melted butter, ground pecans and a dash of cinnamon. Fantastic.
