Made from scratch Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is a holiday favorite of mine, but in Spain finding canned pumpkin is harder than finding candy canes (almost impossible)!  Manolo knows how much I love it, and he has worked hard on this tasty home-made recipe.  There are a few more steps involved, given that it uses real pumpkin, but the results are well worth the effort!

Ingredients:                                                                               Ingredientes:

1 small pumpkin                                                                       una calabaza pequeña

5 eggs                                                                                         5 huevos

1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk                            400 g de leche condensada

cinnamon                                                                                    canela

vanilla                                                                                          vainilla


1) Boil a small pumpkin for 30 mins.  –  hervir una calabaza pequeña por 30 minutos


2) Remove the skin and blend the pumpkin until it is like a purée.  Let cool.  –   quitar la piel, triturar para hacer un puré y dejar que enfrie

3)  Mix together the eggs, sweetened condensed milk, and a dash cinnamon and vanilla.   –  mezclar los  huevos, la leche condensada, canela, y vainilla


4)  Mix everything together and add to the crust of your pie*.  –  triturar todo y añadir a la base

*Here Manolo used a cookie crust base, but a normal pie crust works great too. (crust recipes to come!)

5)  Bake for around 45 mins at 340ºF  –  hornear 45 minutos  a 170º C


The finished home-made pumpkin pie!  ¡Deliciosa!
