Easy Pumpkin Pie
For the dough:
- 250g Flour
- 125g Cold butter in cubes
- 1 Teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 2 Tablespoons of water
- 1 Egg yolk
For the filling:
- 2 Cups Pumpkin puree
- 3 Large eggs
- 1/2 Cup brown sugar
- 3/4 Cup Evaporated milk
- 3/4 Tsp Cinnamon powder
- 1/8 Tsp Ground cloves
- 1/8 Tsp Salt
- 1 and 1/2 tsp Fresh grated ginger zest
- To begin, add the flour, sugar and salt in a food processor (the dough can also be made by hand).
- Then add the cold butter, egg yolk and water to the food processor all at once, beating until the dough is just blended (it should look like a lumpy mass).
- Then, by hand, we shape it into a disk, wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before stretching and kneading.
- Next, flour the work surface, knead and roll out the dough to a thickness of 6 mm.
- Lightly flour a 7-inch tart pan and place the dough in the pan pressing to secure it. Store the mold with the dough in the refrigerator while preparing the filling.
- Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
- Beat the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, eggs, evaporated milk, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Pour this mixture into the previously cooled cake.
- Bake the tart in the oven for 10 minutes at 200 °C, then reduce the oven temperature to 190 °C and bake for 35 to 40 minutes more until the pumpkin filling is firm but looser in the center.
- Let the pie cool to room temperature, then let it cool completely for about 4 hours before serving. Enjoy!
