I love pies (my favourite meal is pie and mashed potatoes!) but I don't like the fat content of the pastry so I came up with this simple but very delicious idea. Use as you would any ordinary pastry or for pasties. All measurements are approximate. If you don't like the hassle of peeling the butternut pumpkin you can split it in half, take out the seeds and roast in a hot oven until it's soft about 30 - 45 minutes.
Everyone will love this classic American dessert recipe. Tastes beautiful and is so easy to make. Even easier if you buy a pre-made pie shell.
Butternut pumpkins make any dish look and taste superb. You can make this tart a day in advance.
This is a quick-fix dessert that's packed with beta carotene and fibre.
These nutritious little tarts not only taste great; they look attractive, too.
This is kind of like a pumpkin pie crossed with an apple crumble. An unusual but healthy and hearty dessert.
A sweet pumpkin pie, tarty, low-fat treat
In America pumpkin pie is associated with Thanksgiving and Halloween but it is good to eat all year. Mashed pumpkin is spiced then baked in a shortcrust pie shell.
When recipes like pumpkin pie or pumpkin scones require pumpkin puree this is a great option; the p[umpkin is baked rather than boiled so you retain flavour and don't add any more moisture.
This pie is crustless, just like my pecan pie and lemon pie. You could try pouring this blend into a prepared pie shell in order to satisfy your culinary sensibilities, but those of you who want to whip up a pumpkin pie that is ridiculously quick and easy, give this a turn in your blender. It is creamy, delicious and "Oh So Easy".
This is a very old cheesecake recipe and it seems like there are a lot of ingredients, but it is worth the effort.
There's no mystery to cooking pumpkin really but using the pressure cooker and steamer means water doesn't get into the pumpkin when its cooking, the flavour stays and it's quick.
Mashed pumpkin with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and treacle, cooked in a pie case with butter, milk, sugar and egg makes a delicious end to any meal.
A creamy version of a sweet pumpkin pie. Don't knock this till you've tried it! Makes a great winter dessert pie or Christmas in July treat.
Pumpkin pie made with fresh pumpkin is just the perfect dessert for any time of year, but especially good in the colder months. Serve with whipped cream.
This traditional sweet American pie that dates back to colonial times. It makes a great dessert. Enjoy!
This is a very unique cheesecake which uses pumpkin butter. If you can't find pumpkin butter (or don't want to make it) apple or lemon butter can be substituted.
I'm glad my mother gave me this recipe. I think it's better than straight pumpkin pie, because it doesn't have a really strong pumpkin taste. Use butternut or other sweet pumpkin and make sure the pumpkin is well drained before pureeing.
