Pumpkin pie is a traditional recipe for thanksgiving, which is celebrated in America on the fourth Thursday of November. Thanksgiving Day is one of the three most popular holidays in the United States and is widely celebrated on a par with Easter and Christmas. Traditional dishes of this holiday are baked whole Turkey and pumpkin pie.
A small pumpkin (here is since forgotten weigh) wash, cut into on slices, not clearing from peel, to place on a baking sheet and put in hot the oven on 20-25 minutes. Can top cover with foil to keep the pumpkin not overly dried up. Remove the pumpkin from the oven and leave to cool.
Prepare the products for the basics. Cookies carefully grind. Melt the butter. Form d 22-23 cm lined with parchment, and the bottom and sides.
In a wide bowl, pour the crushed cookies, add sugar, pour in the slightly cooled butter and mix with your hand in the butter crumbs. Try to squeeze the lump. If it crumbles, you need to add more butter(I had to add).
Put the mixture into the mold and tamp with your hands.
Remove the flesh of the cooled pumpkin from the skin and beat with an immersion blender into a puree.
Prepare the products for the filling. The oven to include at 200*C.
Whisk cream until stable peaks. In pumpkin puree add sugar, spices, salt and orange zest. Mix everything thoroughly.
One by one beat the eggs, each time carefully beating with a mixer.
Continuing to beat with a mixer on low speed, gradually add the whipped cream.
Pour the filling into the mold.
Bake for 45-55 minutes. Look at your oven, you may have to lower the temperature. It might take more time. Readiness can be checked with a toothpick.
Allow the cake to cool completely. I spent the night on the balcony. I wish I'd put it in the fridge. At night it was subzero temperature, and I did not take this into account. Poured ganache on a pie is too cold and he froze with bumps. There was no smooth surface.
Ganache: place the chocolate, butter and corn syrup (I did not have, replaced with maple) in a bowl set over a pan of boiling water. Melt and stir until smooth. Remove from heat and pour ganache on top of filling. To put it in the fridge so the chocolate froze.
Decorate on desire, and can be and not decorate, pie and so self-sufficient.
The pie is so spicy, fragrant because of the large number of spices!
