Ingredients

Instructions

First of all make the pumpkin puree:

  • Cut the pumpkins in half and scoop out the insides using a tablespoon. Put them in an oven tray with the peel facing the tray. Add water into the tray and cover it with aluminium foil.

  • Bake them in the preheated oven for one hour or until fork tender.

Now make the pie dough:

  • In a big bowl add flour, cold butter, one egg yolk, a pinch of salt and 70 ml of cold water. Knead very well until the dough binds together.

For the filling:

  • Once the pumpkins have baked and you've let them cool a bit, scoop out the pulp from the peel using a tablespoon.

  • Take the dough out of the fridge, remove the plastic and roll it on a working surface dusted with flour. Roll a sheet as big as your tray. I coated my tray with olive oil and covered it with baking paper.
