Harvest is a wonderful time of year with lots of delicious fresh foods, but it’s also an important time to reduce our food waste. This Halloween, don’t simply throw away the pumpkin flesh after you’ve removed its innards for your jack-o’-lantern! Make this beautifully spiced pumpkin pie for a delicious autumnal treat.
This pie features a beautifully smooth and creamy filling accompanied with a spiced shortcrust base, ready for you to top with some whipped cream and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon. Follow our easy steps to create the entire pie from scratch, including making your own fresh pumpkin puree and spiced shortcrust pastry. Alternatively, for those who simply want a quick dessert to impress your friends, you can use readymade pastry and a tin of pumpkin puree. This is also the perfect option to enjoy pumpkin pie all year round, even when pumpkins are out of season and more difficult to come by.
