American Pumpkin Pie


Tarte a la citrouille


This is my version of the pumpkin American pie that is traditionally served at Thanksgiving or at Halloween to use the pulp from the hollowed-out pumpkin lanterns. I have made this spicy sweet pie with the half pumpkin I had left after making the Turkish pumpkin sweets (Recipe here) and we loved it. Dusted with icing sugar..it’s delicious….


 tarte de citrouille




850g pumpkin

2 eggs

80g soft light brown sugar

5 tbsp golden syrup

250ml double cream

1 tsp – 1tbsp mixed spice (to taste)

1/2 tsp salt

Icing sugar


for the pastry:

200g plain flour

90g butter

1 egg yolk

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp cold water





Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Mix in the egg yolk and the water. make a soft dough.

Chill in the fridge for 30min.

Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface. line a flan tin. prick the base all over with a fork.

Line with foil and baking sheet and chill for 20min.

Bake in a preheated oven 200C/GM6 for 10min then remove the film and bake for a further 5 min.


The filling:

Cut the pumpkin flesh into cubes and boil in water for 20min or until tender.

Mash the flesh well until smooth. spoon it into a sieve and let to drain.

In a bowl, mix the pumpkin, eggs , sugar, syrup, cream, spices and salt to make a smooth filling.


Pour the mixture into the pastry and bake in a 190C/GM 5 oven for 40 min or until set.


Dust the surface generously with icing sugar.
