Chef Frankie – Pumpkin Pie

The Pumpkin Pie is one of the most traditional American dessert for the Thanksgiving Day!

Today Chef Frankie shows you how to prepare the pumpkin puree to fill your pie.

What you need are:

  • 800g peeled and cubed pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  •  1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon rum
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 200g tightly packed brown sugar

Wrap the pumpkin in foil, place on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 40 minutes or until tender.

Place pumpkin in a food processor with the spices, vanilla extract, rum and cream and process to combine.

Beat together the eggs and sugar in a small bowl, then stir into the pumpkin mixture.

Roll out the short pastry and use to line a 23cm pie dish, then pour in the pumpkin mixture and bake for a further hour until the filling is set.

Serve with the cream.

Chef Frankie wishes you an Happy Thanksgiving Day!
