Homemade Pumpkin Pie

Have you ever had a pumpkin pie you didn’t like? I am a big fan of homemade pumpkin pie, it’s been my faithful companion ever since I was a little child. When we wanted a quick, delicious dessert, mom was throwing a super tasty pumpkin pie, in no time.

We always have pumpkin in the house, we grate it and keep it in the freezer so we can enjoy a delicious pumpkin pie all year round. For many people pumpkin is a fall and Halloween related fruit (yes, pumpkin is a fruit, says Wikipedia) but to us pumpkin is a regular ingredient in our food, pies in particular.

This recipe is amazing, the taste of pumpkin is simply transformed by the cinnamon, tasting more like an apple pie with a hint of pumpkin. This homemade pumpkin pie is super easy, super delicious and it looks great as a dessert on a festive dinner. That is if you are not the Queen of clumsiness and mess up the design, as your truly did. Not entirely my fault though, the pastry was quite disappointing and made my life way harder than it should’ve. Plus I wanted to sprinkle powdered sugar and form bats and ghosts and it all went…well…let’s leave it to ugly (sigh)

What I really love about this homemade pumpkin pie is the cinnamon and walnut addition. They give the pie such a special, remarkable flavor and match the sweetness in pumpkin perfectly.

  1. I enjoy going to the Farmers Market here and get upset when i can’t. Trying new recipes with some of your suggestions and products is wonderful. I am getting my husband to eat more veggies and gluten free products. Won’t do the pizza, but does eat the pasta. Thank you Amy’s for making such good food for us!! Really love the macaroni and cheese.

  2. What a great new idea for pumpkin pie. I love using puff pastry and grating the pumpkin instead of using puree is so creative.

  3. This looks amazing, Petro! I printed the recipe to give it a try. I love that you used puff pastry. I’m not usually a fan of the traditional pie crusts!

    1. Aw, thanks so much Sandra. Enjoy the pie, it tastes so different when made with puff pastry not to mention the walnut and cinnamon addition.

  4. This seriously looks beyond delicious! I’ve never seen pumpkin pie with walnuts but why not? Sounds like a great addition!

    1. Thanks Katie, it is truly delicious indeed. Walnuts are actually the part O love the most about this recipe, they give such an unique flavor to it.
