Pumpkin pie or cake, the famous recipe to make at home step by step

Next, we will prepare a pumpkin pie with crispy dough and mega-creamy filling with a touch of spice that makes it irresistible. We can accompany it with whipped cream or some vanilla ice cream. It’s just a real show though. We can replace the baked pumpkin with the typical canned pumpkin preparations that we find more and more in supermarkets and patisseries. These preparations can get us out of trouble if we don’t have roasted pumpkin and want to prepare this pumpkin pie. Although I have to tell you that I like it much better with pumpkin baked in the oven the traditional way.

How to make pumpkin pie

We will start by preparing the pumpkin pie crust. To do this, put in a bowl 175 grams of wheat flour, half a teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon of white sugar and 125 grams of cold unsalted butter cut into cubes. Stir until the mixture has a sandy texture.

Gradually add from 40 to 80 grams of very cold water. Stop adding water as soon as the dough starts to pull away from the bowl, but before the dough forms a ball.

Make a ball with the dough and flatten it a little. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes in the fridge or 10 minutes in the freezer.

We stretch the dough with a thickness between 3 and 5 mm, and with a diameter of 30 cm. I like to stretch it on the cling film we have used to wrap it, so we avoid putting more flour on the dough when stretching it. That way, it will also be easier for us to handle when we put it in the mold.

Put the dough in the removable 23 cm cake tin and arrange it well. Trim the excess from the edges and pierce the entire surface and sides with a fork. Preheat the oven to 190ºC with heat up and down.

We place a baking paper that covers all the dough well and on top of the paper we put some dried vegetables or baking weights.
