Preparation of the American Pumpkin Pie recipe:

So that the butter is cold enough, you can cut it into cubes before use and put it in the freezer for a few minutes. Then put the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl and add the cold butter in pieces. Knead the dough and add the ice water. Shape it into a ball. Wrap the dough in cling film and put it in the fridge for half an hour.

In the meantime, preheat the oven to 200° top and bottom heat. For the pumpkin topping, whisk the eggs with sugar, pumpkin puree, condensed milk, and cornstarch. You also add the spices or spice mixture and stir the whole thing into a smooth mass.

Now roll out the dough a little larger than a quiche tin. Put it in the form and cut off the overhanging pieces of dough at the edge. Then pour the pumpkin mixture into the batter.

Bake the American Pumpkin Pie on the lowest rack in the oven for 10 minutes at 200 degrees. Then turn the temperature down to 175 degrees and bake the pie for another 30 to 40 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the pie. The filling should still be a little soft in the middle.

Enjoy the American Pumpkin Pie recipe!
