When revising my fridge today, I found a stray piece of pumpkin. It was already softening and even a bit mushy here and there, so I decided I should put it to use and try a recipe for pumpkin pie I found some time ago. It was super easy to make, and everybody loved it.
To make the crust, I took:
150 gr (5 oz) soft butter
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1\2 cup sour cream
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
First, I mixed butter and sugar, then added egg, sour cream, salt, and finally, flour + baking powder. Then, I divided the dough into two parts, rolled them out, used the first part as the bottom crust, and the second as the top.
To make the filling, I simply chopped the pumpkin, sauteed it with some vegetable oil, added 1 tsp. sugar and a bit of cinnamon.
Then I put it in the oven (200C/400F) for around half an hour. It made a yummy side dish!
