Pumpkin Pie!


Another post so soon? Yes!
As I don't think I have time to blog tomorrow I wanted to post the making of our pumpkin pie now!

First we started out with the ritual slaughtering of the pumpkin!
After that we cooked the pumpkin together with my owner's not so secret ingredient: apples.

While the pumpkin and apple mix was cooking we made the pie-dough from flour, butter, water and a little sugar.

When the dough was ready we lined the pie-form with it. Then we put it in the oven for awhile.

When the pumpkin and apples were ready we mashed them to a pulp, but as it was very watery we then put it in a piece of linen cloth and squeezed most of the water out of it so we were left with:

A nice dry pumpkin/apple paste.

We mixed the paste with eggs, brown sugar, spices (nutmeg, cinnemon and gingerroot powder) and a little bit of Sherry.

And we put the mix in the pie form!
Now just 40 more minutes in the oven and what will we have: Pumpkin Pie.
Might not look as pretty as in the pic of the recipe, but tastes delicious.
