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.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200 °C bottom and top heat. To make the pumpkin topping, whisk the eggs with sugar, pumpkin puree, condensed milk and cornstarch. You also add the spices or spice mixture and mix the whole thing until smooth.

Now roll out the dough slightly larger than a quiche tin. Then put it in the mold and cut off any overhanging pieces of dough on the edge. Then pour the pumpkin mixture into the dough.

Baking in the oven

You can then bake the American pumpkin pie on the bottom shelf 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. In any case, make sure that the pie does not bake for too long. The filling should still be a little soft in the middle at the end.

Then enjoy the American Pumpkin Pie recipe!
