You can eat it hot on a winter's day or cold as a picnic dessert; both ways are equally enjoyable.
If you prefer not to make your own pastry then buy some from the supermarket frozen - it's much the easier way if you either don't have time or don't enjoy making pastry.
Pumpkins are very popular in America but are becoming more so in Europe too. Americans traditionally celebrate Thanksgiving with pumpkin pie but to be honest our recipe is much too nice to only eat once a year! Why not make it for birthdays, anniversaries, picnics or just any time you fancy it?
Because this recipe is aimed at the beginner as well as the experienced cook, instead of using fresh pumpkin, canned pumpkin is used. Really as long as you use frozen pastry there is nothing easier than this recipe - all you need to do is mix the ingredients together and pop it in the oven.
Mix all the other ingredients together.
Pour into pie dish.
Bake in pre heated oven for 50 minutes.
Once cooked you should be able to insert a knife into the centre and it should be clean when it comes out.
This is lovely eaten either hot or cold.
