Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is steeped in tradition and this recipe is quite easy. You can use a good quality canned pumpkin puree or make your own.

1 par-baked pie shell (see Sweet Pastry recipe for details)

1 3/4 cups pumpkin purée
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup whipping cream

Whisk together brown sugar and eggs
Add pumpkin, spices, and whipping cream and mix well
Pour into par-baked pie shell and bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour, until slightly firm to the touch, and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Remove from oven and allow to cool
Cut into wedges and serve with whipped cream
