Pumpkin PieIngredients for Pumpkin Pie

For the pastry:
170g plain flour
40g icing sugar
85g cold butter
1 egg yolk
Pinch of salt
40g crushed pecans

For the pie filling:
1 pumpkin or squash, peeled and cut into chunks
145g maple syrup
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp allspice
½ tsp grated nutmeg
2 large eggs, beaten, plus 1 yolk
150ml double cream

How to make Pumpkin Pie

  • Steam the pumpkin pieces until tender. Drain and then puree with a blender.
  • Then put into a fine sieve over a bowl to drain any excess water. Leave for around an hour.
  • Now make your pastry. Sift the flour into a large bowl and stir in the salt.
  • Cube the butter then rub into the mixture with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Now stir in the icing sugar and the crushed pecans.
  • Mix the egg yolk with 2 tbsp of cold water and add to the mixture, stirring with a knife until it forms a paste.
  • Bring together with your fingertips and roll into a ball.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes in clingfilm.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Once chilled, roll out the pastry on a floured surface to the thickness of a £1 coin. Use it to line a 20cm tart tin.
  • Then cover with greaseproof paper and fill with baking beans.
  • Bake for 15 minutes like this, then remove the paper and beans and bake for a further 5 - 10 minutes until pale golden.
  • Now to make the filling. Gently whisk the eggs and yolk in a large bowl.
  • Place the maple syrup, spices and cream in a pan and bring to simmer.
  • Whisk and then pour over the eggs and whisk again.
  • Now add the 250g pureed pumpkin, whisking again to make sure everything is combined. It should form a creamy consistency.
  • Pour into the tart case and bake for 35 - 50 minutes, until the filling is set but still slightly wobbly in the centre.
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack for 1 hour before serving.
