Fresh Pumpkin Directions

Fresh Pumpkin Prep:

Step 1
Take 2 pie pumpkin and slice the stem off. Slice pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds.

Step 2
Place halved pumpkin and place on a baking tray. Cover with pats of butter, about 1/2 sticks worth. 

Step 3
Bake in oven at 350 for 45 minutes, or until fork tender. 

Step 4
Remove from oven and allow to cool until its easy to handle. 

Step 5
Take a spoon or scooper and scrape out the cooked pumpkin flesh and reserve for pie.


Crust Directions

Step 1
Place flour, sugar, salt, and butter into a food processor bowl. Pulse until the mixture resembles a crumbly sand with pea sized pieces.

Step 2
Add 1 tbsp of cold water at a time and pulse. Keep adding water until the dough starts to form, the crumbs will start to absorb into the dough. 

Step 3
Move dough to a floured surface and form together, then cut in half. Take each half and form into a dough ball. Flatten the dough into a disk then wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least one hour before use. 


Pie Assembly

Step 1
Place heavy cream, brown sugar, eggs, fresh pumpkin, vanilla extract, sea salt, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg all in a blender jar. Blend on high speed for 60 seconds. 

Step 2
Take a pie dough portion and place in floured pie bag. Roll out until pie reaches edges of bag. 

Step 3
Unzip pie bag and place a pie pan in the middle of the pie crust. Flip pie dough into the pie pan. Push the crust down into the pie pan and trim any excess edges.

Step 4
Pour in pie filling from blender and fill crust up almost all the way to the top.

Step 5
Place in 350F preheated oven. Bake for 55-65 minutes. Pie should have some wiggle to it, the center should not be liquidy. The pie will continue to cook some while cooling.

Step 6
Cool for 5 hours before cutting in and serving!
