Our first Sweet recipes: Pumpkin pie
Hello! I’m here again with our first sweet recipe!
Let me tell you something, It’s almost Halloween and, even if it’s a recipe with pumpkin, I’m not the Halloween type of guy! I’m Christian I’m not the kind of Halloween at all!
I just love pies, all kinds! Pumpkin, lemon, apple, blueberry, cherry, all of them. Here in Brazil there is a confusing definition about pies. The synonym to the Portuguese word torta, is pie, but torta also means (for Brazilians)a praline cake. I don’t know from where it came, but I do recognize that is weird, but people here think different.
I cooked a Pumpkin pie…that y wife hates hahahahahaha, so I’m eating it all alone (and I’m not sad about it). I love everything that there is cinnamon. There are only two ways that I like pumpkin: puree with some shrimps or pie.
I realy prefer savoury dishes, but if there is any sweet dish that I like…
I would like to say sorry about the photos, because I was almost without sunlight. I did it at the same day that I made de NY Strip Steak with vegetables , Iwas really tired at this time.
I will just say 2 important things about the recipe
1 – I won’t give the dough recipe. Because you can buy at the store, sometimes you already have one recipe, and the recipe that I use is from this site: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2008/11/pie-crust-102-all-butter-really-flaky-pie-dough/
That’s so well explained, that I would just repeat it. That’sthe recipe that I use. All credits to smittenkitchen!
2 – I made a mistake in this recipe, nothing to worry. I didn’t beat well the mixture so it didn’t incorporated all the ingredients well. I didn’t affect the flavor, but visually is not nice to some spots of egg colour on it. I do this recipe for a long time and this time I made this mistake, so mix well until smooth and homogenous.
So, let’s go to the recipe!
1 pie crust opened on a 9 inch pie plate
350 gr Pumpkin (peeled and seeless)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
½ teaspoon of ginger
½ teaspoon of salt
A pinch of nutmeg
A pinch of clove powder
1 – Cook the pumpkin in water, until fully cooked and soft.
2 – Discard the water. Mash the pumpkin until it looks like a puree.
3 – Preheat the oven to medium heat
4 – Mix well all the other ingredients with the pumpkin, until fully combined, smooth and homogenous.
5 – Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie shell. Bake it at medium heat at the lowest rack of the oven, until fully cooked (the crust will be golden brown and the filling won’t be liquid anymore). Let it rest for a few minutes and serve it with whipped cream.
So that’s it guys, hope you enjoyed it. I love this recipe, even with all mistakes.
See u later guys! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
