Crust: Preheat oven to 350. Whisk the flour and the salt together in a large bowl. Add the Crisco and mix with your fingers until combined. Add the ice water and use a fork to combine. Turn pie dough out onto a floured surface and gather into a circular disk. Roll out the dough big enough to fit into a pie plate. Flute edges for decoration. Set aside.

Pumpkin-Apple Butter Filling: Combine sugars and spices and salt in a medium bowl. Add the apple butter, pumpkin, and eggs and mix until combined. Add the half and half and stir until blended. Pour into pie crust and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the center. Cool on wire rack for about 2 hours.
Orange marmalade glaze: combine sugar and cornstarch together. Add the marmalade, lemon juice, and water. Cook over medium heat until thick and delicious. Cool.
Spoon cooled glaze on top of pie. Top with whipped cream and orange zest.
