sugar pumpkins, halved and seeded
heavy whipping cream
pumpkin pie spice
2 (9 inch)
unbaked deep dish pie crusts
This recipe is easy and straightforward, you only used one prep bowl to mix everything. I used baked butternut squash pulp. Made only one pie and used only 1/2 cup of palm sugar. It was still sweet, probably because the squash was sweet itself. So please try with less sugar than the recipe suggests, you would save lot of carbs.
I was in search of a recipe for real pumpkin pie...no canned pumpkin or milk involved. This recipe delivered big time! I loved the use of heavy cream and sour cream rather than the typical evaporated milk component; the texture of this pie was sublimely silky and rich. I halved this recipe for one pie and reduced the sugar by half again and it was plenty sweet enough for us. This WILL be my go-to pumpkin pie recipe forevermore. I used pumpkin purée that I roasted, puréed and froze previously so this recipe didn't really take much time to make at all.
