Happy Friday guys,

I am sharing my most loved (by myself and Florian, my mom somehow hates the consistency and the taste – guess she is not fall fan after all) recipe on my blog today. This pumpkin pie has been my go-to pie for nearly every fall and winter ocassion and I just adore it and it is so simple.

And even simpler if you are in any area where you can get pumpkin puree in a can. Unless you don´t have one like me you have to make it by yourself.

So here is what you need:

For the pastry:
– 250 gr. of flour
– 75 gr. of white sugar
– 125 gr. butter (softened)
– 1 egg
– 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

I put all the ingredients in the mixer and wait unitl it look dry, then I pour the dough onto the countertop and kned it until it is one big and nice ball

After that I try to roll it out as flat as possible and then I put it into the pie form spreading it as far in every corner as possible so that you can go up the edge for a nice border of your cake

Now I set it aside and make the filling.

For the filling you´ll need:
– 350 gr. of pumpkin puree
– 150 gr. of brown sugar
– 3 teaspoons of pumpkin spice mix
– 3 eggs 
– 200 gr. of sour cream (you can also use heavy cream but this changes the consistency of your filling since it isn´t as thick as sour cream)
– I cute the pumpkin into small pieces and let it bake in the oven for about 30 to 40 minutes until it is soft enough to be removed from the peel by a spoon 
– then I puree the pumpkin with a half cup of water 
– mix the other ingredients of your filling into the bowl with your pumpkin puree and stir until you have one evenly batter
– pour it into your pie form with the pastry
– bake for 45 minutes at 180 ° (350 Fahrenheit)
I already made it about three times this fall and I am going to make it as one of the two Thanksgiving desserts. 
So delicious you guys. Make yourself a cup of coffee or tea and just enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

My top 3 pumpkin recipes for fall/winter – super easy…..

(Pumpkin bread)

…..

Hi guys, 
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
today I am rounding up my 3 favorite recipes, including pumpkin I have found all over the internet. I have tried oh so many but these are the ones we love and I am making over and over again. Of course you could cook/bake them for Winter too. Pumpkin bread for example would be great to make for Thanksgiving or to bring to a Thanksgiving festivity as a gift.
#1 Pumpkin bread

 3,5 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil (I like taking olive oil)
2/3 cups water
3 eggs
2 tablespoons baking soda
1,5 tablesoons salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
 1 tablespoon nutmeg

stir everything together and bake for 1 hour for about 170 degress/ the dough serves two baking pans 

#2 Pumpkin spice cake with cinnamon bourbon buttercream frosting

you can view the recipe here – it is from Mara´s blog called M Loves M

#3 Pumpkin casserole with potatoes and minced meat

1 pound minced meat
1 small pumpkin hokaido
1 pound potatoes
1 leek
cheese
salt, pepper, nutmeg

I shredded the pumpkin and the potoates in my kitchen mashine
pre-cook the meat in a skillet first 


put everything together
garnish with salt, pepper and nutmeg and lots of cheese on top


cook for about 45 minutes with 175° degrees until potatoes and pumpkin are cooked

These are my absolute favorite things to cook/bake right now, despite the pumpkin spice latte. I have posted a recipe last year. You can view it here.

In this way I am ending my fall posts and going straight into winter which makes sense these days. I am alerady preparing for Christmas. Here is a peek into my kitchen and it only has about 4 ° every day so wearing warm winter clothing is more than appropriate.  

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
