Pumpkin pie is one of those things that is either baked or eaten on every single Hallmark movie!
Usually pumpkin pie associated with autumn, and of course Thanksgiving and sometimes even Christmas - albeit in American. Over the last few years we've seen the humble pumpkin pie make its way over this side of the Atlantic and can now be found in some of our favourite local cafes!
But wait where do I find pureed pumpkin in Dublin?! Well, you can either make your own... Or if you're like us, you're a little lazy - you can still pick up some canned pureed pumpkin here.
Okay, let's get started!
- 1 Can of Pureed Pumpkin
- 1 Can of Condensed Milk
- 175g Caster Sugar
- 2 Eggs and 1 Egg Yolk
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon
- 1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
- 175g Plain Flour
- Mini tart cases or one large tart case
For these ones we used pre-made mini short crust tart cases, which you can pick up in most Tescos and Dunnes now! Or again, if you're feeling up to it - you could make your own too. We found that the pre-made cases make things a little handier, and they look great too. You can also use a full size pie crust if you would like to make one large pie.
Sift the flour into the mix, and give it a good stir.
When you take them out of the oven, leave to cool. (They will smell delicious, so this step will be difficult!) Once cooled, dust with icing sugar and they're ready to serve!
So there you go, pick up a can of pumpkin puree on the way home and give this recipe a bash! Whether you're a Halloween fan, or just getting into the Thanksgiving spirit - it's worth a try, sooo delicious.
