Pumpkin pie with fruit: an American classic

As the weather cools outside, fall colors the trees, and Thanksgiving approaches, pumpkin pie isn’t far away. A true classic in America, pumpkin pie is known and made in many varieties. In this country, we usually work pumpkin into dough, while American cuisine uses pumpkin as a pie filling. If you haven’t tried this delicious original recipe yet, now is the time to do so. Here we show you how to make your own Pumpkin Pie with Fruit Cream. A true American and definitely a fall treat!

American Pumpkin Pie

Traditionally, pumpkin pie is a dessert served at Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Enjoy large and small usually sweetened cream pie.

The original consists of pumpkin puree, eggs, sweetened condensed milk or cream. This eventually creates a pudding-like mass that acts as a filling for the pie. The pie itself is usually a classic pastry dough that is first pre-baked and then baked with the filling. If this reminds you of cheesecake, which is very popular in this country, you are not wrong. Making pumpkin pie and cheesecake is actually very similar.

Not only American cuisine offers truly heavenly cake recipes. Internationally, we are passionate about different recipe ideas and are always happy to be inspired. So that you never run out of ideas, here we have collected some beauties for you:

So you don’t have to limit yourself to the same teas over and over again, we’ll tell you which fall drinks promise a warm season. It’s never boring again and they warm you up from the inside out.

Many different baking recipes require us to “blind bake” the dough before filling. But what does this term actually mean and how does it work? Here we tell you: how does blind baking actually work?

Hint: There are endless ways to top off your pumpkin pie. We choose sweet fruits for this recipe because we don’t want to do without some fruits, especially in the gray season. Of course, after baking, you can sprinkle it with powdered sugar, sprinkle with chopped nuts, or enjoy it on its own. Just try your favorite and enjoy your personal pumpkin pie!

  1. First we prepare the dough. Mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add butter and egg yolk and mix well. Knead the dough evenly with your hands and keep the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Using a mixer, mix pumpkin puree, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and egg. Add cream and cornstarch and mix until smooth.

  3. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and place it in a cake tin (about 26 cm). Pinch the edges of the dough to form a bowl. Now pre-bake the dough in the oven for 5-10 minutes. Then add the filling, spread evenly and bake for 50-60 minutes. Lower the temperature if necessary.

  4. While the cake is in the oven, peel and slice the tangerines and wash the raspberries. After baking, allow the cake to cool, then sprinkle with cocoa powder and powdered sugar and sprinkle with tangerines and raspberries. Serve immediately and enjoy! Bon Appetit!
