The best ever pumpkin pie recipe!
Autumn is my favourite season of the year, when leaves turn into beautiful colours and you can easily find fresh pumpkins in the store (I went shopping last saturday and bought a huge pumpkin, sweet potatoes, persimmons, and papaya!) and now you know why Autumn is my favourite season. Because I can create many amazing recipes with ingredients that are available in this season.
Follow this recipe to make the PERFECT pumpkin pie!
This recipe took me by surprise, after testing with so many recipes and ingredients, this one turned out to be the best! I didn’t think that it would be THIS good to be honest, but you will love the smooth texture of this pie. It’s just like a very light version of cheesecake but with spicy pumpkin flavour. And as you can imagine the pie was gone within one hour after I baked it, and we almost had a fight about who will eat the last slice!
I oven roasted a fresh piece of pumpkin for the puree (tastes MUCH better than canned pumpkin), here’s an excellent tutorial for how to oven roast pumpkins for puree.
