Pumpkin Pie

It doesn't have to be Thanksgiving to enjoy a piece of pumpkin pie!
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American


Pie Crust

  • 160 g flour all-purpose
  • 115 g butter cold, in cubes
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 to 5 tbsp water cold

Pie Filling

  • 1 can evaporated milk 12 oz
  • 2 eggs
  • 300 g pumpkin puree 15 oz
  • 200 g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp mixed spice or pumpkin spice


How to prepare the pie crust

  • Cover the butter cubes with the flour and salt. Using your hands grind the butter pieces into small floured flakes.
  • Add some ice cold water and form a disc.
  • Wrap in cling foil and chill the dough for 30 min.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Roll out the dough and fit it into a 9-inch pie plate. Refrigerate for another 30 min.
  • Using parchment paper and pie weights, bake the pie crust for about 20 min.

How to prepare the pie filling

  • Mix together all of the ingredients until well blended and smooth.
  • Pout the mixture into the prepared crust.
  • Bake at 200°C for 15 min then lower the temperature to 170°C and bake for another 50 min. If the edges start darken, cover the pie with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 3 hours.
