Pumpkin Pie is an American sweet pumpkin pie using cooked-from-the-pumpkin ingredients. You can find pumpkin pies almost anywhere in the US, but they are trendy during the Halloween season or Thanksgiving dinner. Pumpkin Pie is one of the classic desserts you must eat at least once a year.
It's a sweet pie made of pumpkin puree and other ingredients. Traditionally, pumpkin pie is just made out of pumpkin and sugar. But there are different ways - some creative people have created clever recipes with healthy ingredients like cashews or tofu! But I love traditional recipes!
When we think of pumpkin pie, we must acknowledge the pies that are baked with different techniques. For instance, there is the open-crust style, where a layer of cookies is added on top of the filling (like blueberry pie), and one that uses puff pastry with creme patisserie (like carrot cake). But then you have ones like apple pie or pumpkin pie, which are baked with shortcrust pastry, which makes them very tender and soft. This is also called a ‘closed crust’ because it has no holes in the crust, allowing the filling to be filled while being firm.
Pumpkin Pie is a classic dessert that you don't have to pile on the calories to enjoy and has become one of our favorite fall desserts, perfect for any occasion.
