Pumpkin pie

I found the old-fashioned recipe for the simplest, and the finest pumpkin pie, it has no match

When someone mentions you a pumpkin pie, the first association is probably Halloween or a typical American pumpkin pie. But people have been making pumpkin treats since ancient times and what’s finer in the fall than such a dessert?

I dug around the old cookbooks I had inherited from my great-grandmother and grandmother and found a very simple pumpkin pie recipe that lures saliva into my mouth. Well, without further ado, I think it’s time to get down to business.



  1. 400 g flour
  2. 100 g of sugar
  3. 150 g butter
  4. 1 egg
  5. 3 tablespoons milk


  1. 500 g of diced pumpkin
  2. 100 g of sugar
  3. 120 g yogurt
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 2-3 tablespoons butter
  6. some cinnamon


  1. Mix the dough ingredients well, knead it and refrigerate for an hour.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the pumpkin until it is completely soft.
  3. Roll out the dough and put it into the pie mold you covered with butter and prick it with a fork.
  4. Mix the pumpkin with the other ingredients for the stuffing and pour it all over the dough. Bake for about half an hour at 180 ° C.

  1. This looks delicious! I live in South Africa, and so pie is pretty much always of the sweet variety, and usually called tart, and mostly cold – LOL!
    I have a thing for America, my greatest dream! – and I have tried for years to convince my children to be open just about the thought of pumpkin pie. Thus far, no such luck.
    This recipe looks easy enough, so I have saved it (I hope you don’t mind). This Thanksgiving, although it isn’t celebrated in my country, and I am going to finally make Pumpkin Pie – and my children WILL taste it 😛
    Thank you for sharing 🙂

  2. I’ve never had a pumpkin pie, and I think you’re right that a lot of us will just associate it with Americans. I love the design and you can never go wrong with a family recipe!

  3. You’re right, I do associate Pumpkin Pie with American traditions but that’s silly. I mean there’s no reason why we can’t enjoy it all year round. And this recipe looks lovely – kudos to your grandmother and thank you for sharing! Lisa x
