*** SHORT PASTRY CRUST ***
Sift the flour and salt together into a large bowl. With 2 knives or a pastry blender, cut in the butter and shortening until mixture is the texture of coarse crumbs. Add only enough water to make a soft dough.
Form into a ball, wrap in wax paper and chill for at least 1 hour.
*** PIE ***
1. Roll the crust dough on a lightly floured surface to a ⅛" thickness and place in the bottom of a 10" pie pan. Trim and flute the edges.
2. Preheat the oven to 450'. Combine the pumpkin, honey, molasses and spices in a food processor and process until well blended. With the processor on, add eggs one at a time, processing a few seconds after each addition. Transfer to a large bowl.
3. Beat the cream in a large bowl until doubled in volume. Fold into the pumpkin mixture. Pour into prepared pie shell and bake 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350' and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes longer. Arrange cranberries in a circle on top of pie.
