This recipe for pumpkin pie comes courtesy of Rhonda Malahy from Oklahoma. I got a great recipe book called Cafe Oklahoma from her and Paradise Pumpkin Pie is straight from it. Its was our first time ever making pumpkin pie and it is really really good and worth the effort!.


Step 1: Shortcrust pastry base

7 oz. spelt flour sifted

1 pinch salt

3 1/2 oz. chilled butter cubed

approx half a medium egg beaten

Step 2 Pumpkin Pie

8 oz. Philadelphia

2 oz. sugar/xylitol

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 egg beaten

Step 3 Pie filling

10 oz. pureed pumpkin (we used a real pumpkin boiled and mashed but you can buy tinned pumpkin)

237 ml evaporated milk

4 oz. sugar/xylitol

2 eggs lightly beaten

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ginger

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 pinch salt

59 ml maple syrup

pecan halves to garnish

Step 4: Spiced Whipped Topping

4 oz. brown sugar/coconut sugar

1/3 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

200 ml whipping cream

1/2 tsp vanilla


Step 1 Shortcrust pastry base

1Place the flour, salt and butter in a bowl and rub in the butter with your finger tips. Add the egg until the mixture comes together and place on a sheet of baking parchment. Using a rolling pin roll out until flat and lift into the pie tin. This saves the pie sticking to the tin!

Step 2 Pumpkin Pie:

1Combine softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla, mixing until well blended. Blend in egg. Spread onto bottom of pastry base.

Step 3 Pie filling:

1To make the pumpkin puree we chopped up the pumpkin and boiled it until soft enough, mashed it and allowed the water to drain by placing it in a strainer over a saucepan when cold. You will have enough left for another pie if you use a large pumpkin and you can freeze this for later!

Step 4: Spiced Whipped Topping

1Allow to cool and brush with maple syrup and garnish with pecan halves if desired. For topping, mix brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in medium sized bowl. Stir in whipping cream and vanilla and allow to chill for an hour. Take from fridge and whip until stiff. Spread on top and enjoy!.
