Halloween sbriciolata (crumbled) pumpkin pie

60 minutes to prepare Serves 12

Jack-o'-lantern II

Hello! Today as part of the seasonal fight against the blue mood given by grey Autumn, I’m sharing a spooky Halloween recipe!
If you missed my previous post, make sure to check out my Halloween sponge cake with pumpkin, ricotta cheese and almonds.

This year I wanted to make another Halloween pie, so I decided to go for another Jack-o'-lantern tribute. Of course the filling is pumpkin based. Enjoy!

Here are ingredients for a 12-serving recipe (24-cm diameter baking pan):

For the pastry

400 g flour 00
150 g sugar
120 g butter
2 eggs
1 sachet vanilla baking powder

For the stuffing

400 g pumpkin
100 ml cow milk cream
2 eggs
100 g sugar
80 g amaretti biscuits
cinnamon powder
  1. Start preparing the pumpkin: cut the pumpkin into cubes and place it on the baking tray. Bake at 200°C for 20 minutes. Keep aside and let it cool down
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the pastry: cut the butter into cubes and place it in a bowl. Add sugar, a pinch of salt and knead it quickly
  3. Stir in the egg, then mix again. Finally add flour, and vanilla baking powder, all sifted. Knead it again
  4. Preheat oven to 170°C
  5. Grease and dust the baking pan with flour, then cover bottom and sides with half of the pastry cut into a flattened disc-shape, about 5 mm thick. Place the baking pan in the fridge for 15 minutes
  6. When ricotta cheese is dry, sift it and mix it in a bowl with 100 g of sugar
  7. Smash the pumpkin with a fork and place it in a large bowl. Add sugar, eggs, cream, cinnamon powder and whisk until smooth
  8. Add the biscuits, smashed as well, and mix well
  9. Line the pastry with parchment paper and pour the pumpkin filling. Bake at 170°C for 25 minutes, until you achieve a browned crust
  10. Take the pie out of the oven and cover it with the remaining pastry broken into crumbles. Distribute them over the whole tart surface, being careful to seal the edges, too
  11. Bake at 170°C for another 25 minutes
