Pumpkin Pie any one???
• 1 x 500g pack ready-made dessert pastry
• 1 large butternut squash, quartered and seeds reserved
• ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
• ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
• ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 4 tablespoons maple syrup
• 6 tablespoons caster sugar
• 3 large eggs, preferably free-range or organic, beaten
• 200ml double cream
Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Roll the pastry to the thickness of a dollar coin. Get a 22cm loose-bottomed tart tin, line with the pastry and bake blind for 20 minutes. Set aside.
Lay the squash in a baking tray. Sprinkle with the nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon and drizzle with the maple syrup. Cover the tray tightly with a double layer of tinfoil and bake for 45 minutes until soft. Reduce the oven to 180ºC.
Allow the pieces of squash to cool, then scoop out the flesh. You should have about 600g of cooked squash flesh. Don’t forget to scrape out the bits in the tray and the maple syrup. Put in a food processor and wizz until smooth. Transfer to a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the sugar and the eggs. Mix well and stir in the cream.
Fill the cooled tart case with the mix and bake for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, wash the stringy bits of squash off the seeds, dry them and lay them flat on a tray. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar and place in the oven with the pie for the last 10 minutes until crispy.
Remove the tart from the oven. Sprinkle with the seeds when cool. Serve with a dollop of cream or ice cream.
Sarah is lightening things up a little with the open shouldered GUS top in white, perfect for those warmer Autumn days!
This should be your statement piece with the amazing bell sleeves.
Pair it back with a fitted bottom as Sarah has done to avoid too much volume or tuck it in.
