Pumpkin pie is very popular in the United States and Canada. It is a dessert pie with a spiced pumpkin-based custard filling. As pumpkin is a symbol of harvest, pumpkin pie is an essential part of the Thanksgiving meal – however, it can, of course, be made and appreciated whenever pumpkins are available. It is not often made and served in other countries.

Carefully place the pastry sheet into a tart pan.
Press the bottom and sides, then trim excess pastry.
Prick the base with a fork, then place in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes.

Ideas And Tips:
• It is essential to prick holes in the pie dough. The holes allow the steam to escape so the pastry does not rise or puff up while baking.
