Scary Pumpkin Pie


~ Recipe ~

80z Shortcrust Pastry

1lb Pumpkin

2 eggs

4oz caster sugar

4tbsp milk

A pinch nutmeg

A pinch ground ginger

2tsp ground cinnamon


Line a 9-inch flan case with the pastry. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

After removing the ‘inners’ from your pumpkin, taking care to remove the seeds and cotton woolly like inside part. Place it in a steamer or if you don’t have a steamer, between 2 dinner plates over a pan of boiling water. Steam for  15-20 minutes until tender.

Drain thoroughly and mash well in a bowl or puree with a blender. (I like to sieve it too)

Beat the eggs with the sugar and then add the pumpkin puree, the milk and the spices. Blend well.

Pour into the pastry case.

Bake in the middle of a preheated oven at gas.7/220˚c/425˚f, for 15 minutes.

Reduce the temperature to, gas.4/180˚c/350˚f and cook for a further 30 minutes or until the filling is set.

Serve warm with whipped cream

    Mmm, that looks good. My other half went mad and bought four huge pumpkins last autumn, so we ended up making all sorts of things. We should have tried this.
