I have used the same Pumpkin pie recipe for as long as I can remember.
It is great and can be varied in ways to create differant tastes, colours and textures!
Peel and deseed pumpkin, remove any stringy bits and cut into small pieces or slices.
Steam until soft and tender, approx 20 mins.
Roll out your pastry and line your pie dish, making sure you grease the dish first with a little margarine.
Put sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl and whisk with a fork until combined.
Add the spices and milk to the bowl.
Put the steamed pumpkin into a blender and blend until smooth.
Add pumpkin to the mixing bowl, mix thoroughly or blend to mix.
Pour mixture into your pastry lined pie dish(s).
Bake in a hot oven Gas7 for 15 mins,
then reduce the heat to Gas 4 for approx 30 mins or until the middle is set, does not wobble when you move the pie.
Serve hot or eat cold, your preferance as both ways are delicious.
