Pumpkin pie recipe, an easy-to-prepare dessert with seasonal vegetables. Pumpkin Pie is a very popular dessert in the United States to celebrate Thanksgiving Day.
- 1 short-crust pastry
- 500 g pumpkin
- 2 eggs
- 250 g brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1⁄2 tsp ground ginger
- 1⁄2 tsp salt
- 250 ml milk
- 60 g butter
- 1 tablespoon corn flour
Put the chopped pumpkin in a baking dish and bake it with the oven preheated at 180 °C for about 15-20 minutes, until it is very soft. When done, remove from the oven and drain in a colander to remove the water.
Put the pumpkin in a bowl and mash it with a fork. Add the eggs and mix.
Add the brown sugar, softened butter, ginger, cinnamon, grated nutmeg, salt and milk. Add the cornflour and mix well.
Pour the mixture into the tin over the baked shortcut pastry. Then, bake the cake in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 45 minutes.
Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool. Remove from the mould and sprinkle with icing sugar.
Garnish with raspberries and mint leaves. Serve and enjoy.
"American" pumpkin pie is NOT sprinkled with icing sugar, nor is it EVER served with raspberries, OR mint. It is usually served with whipped cream, less often with ice cream.
