Autumn is pumpkin time – naturally, I’d like to show you today how to make pumpkin pie.
What you need:
200 g flour
1 tablespoon sugar
125 g butter
1 pinch of salt
~ 600 g pumpkin (I used hokkaido)
2 tablespoons sour cream
5 tablespoons golden syrup
Cut pumpkin into cubes (use a spoon to get rid of the seeds) and spread on a baking sheet. Cook at 200°C for about 20-30 minutes or until the pulp is soft. (If you use a steam oven, 15 minutes will do.)
In the meantime make the dough: mix butter, sugar, flour and salt. Add 1 – 2 tablespoons of cold water, if necessary.
In between two layers of clingfilm – just like I did when making my apple pie the other day – roll out the dough and put it in your pan.
Put the pan into the fridge for about half an hour.
Mash the pumpkin pulp (use a food processor!) and mix with the remaining ingredients.
Spread the pumpkin pulp over the base of your pie and cook at 180 – 200°C for 30 – 40 minutes.
