American pumpkin pie. Step-by-step recipe
- Let's start preparing the pie from the preparatory works: sow the flour necessarily. (Do not ignore this rule, often because of wholemeal obtained quite dry pies). This way we make the pies air.
- Then, heat the room temperature oil with flour into a crumb.
- Whisk one egg and add it to the dough. Knead soft dough, wrap in food film and send to the refrigerator for an hour.
- In the meantime, prepare the filling: peel the pumpkin from the peel and seeds, finely chop.
- In a saucepan with a thick bottom, lay a pumpkin, add a little water and cook the pumpkin until soft.
- Using a blender, grind the pumpkin to a puree state. I grind it through a sieve, but to speed up the process, you can use a blender, I think it will not affect the taste.
- Now let's go back to the test: sprinkle the table with flour, roll the dough into a circle. For baking, I used a shape with a diameter of 30 cm.
- Form the oil and put the dough there, forming the sides.
- Send the bake to the oven, heated to 190 ° C for 15 minutes.
- While the base is baked, we will return to the filling: the pumpkin puree must once again be beaten with sugar, cream, cinnamon, vanilla, eggs and a pinch of salt.
- When the dough is cooked, put the pumpkin paste on top and return it to the oven for 50 minutes, at a temperature of 180 ° C.
