Sand base and cream filling with a slight aroma of cinnamon and vanilla.

American Pumpkin Pie. Step by step recipe
- Let's start making the cake with the preparatory work: be sure to sift the flour. (Do not ignore this rule, often because of the wholemeal flour, pretty dry pies are obtained). Thus we make pies more airy.
- Then grind room temperature oil with flour into crumbs.
- Beat one egg and add it to the dough. Knead the soft dough, wrap in cling film and refrigerate for an hour.
- Meanwhile, prepare the filling: peel the pumpkin and seeds, finely chop.
- Put the pumpkin in a saucepan with a thick bottom, add some water and cook the pumpkin until soft.
- Using a blender, grind the pumpkin to a puree state. I grind it through a sieve, but you can use a blender to speed up the process, I think it will not affect the taste.
- Now we’ll go back to the test: sprinkle the table with flour, roll the dough into a circle. For baking, I used a mold with a diameter of 30 cm.
- Grease the mold and put the dough in there, forming the sides.
- Send to bake in an oven heated to 190 ° C for 15 minutes.
- While the base is baked, we will return to the filling: pumpkin puree must again be whipped with sugar, cream, cinnamon, vanilla, eggs and a pinch of salt.
- When the dough is baked, put the pumpkin mass on top and send back to the oven for 50 minutes, at a temperature of 180 ° C.
