Mandarine's: Seasonal sweet journal: Pumpkin pie

The second entry to my Seasonal Sweet Journal is this simple yet delicious pumpkin pie that reminds me a bit of cheesecake

The recipe is very simple & doesn't require a lot of ingredients, but it makes such a delicious treat for the tea time, or in the morning with coffee, a good book, and the color of the everchanging trees outside.


For the crust

  • 300g of biscuits
  • 100g of cold butter

For the batter

  • 400g of pumpkin puree
  • 400ml of almond milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 30g of sugar
  • 1tsp of  ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tps of ground ginger
  • 1/2 tps of salt
  • ice sugar


  1. Preheat overn to 250°C. In a bowl make a thin powder with the biscuits. Add the butter, cut into small pieces, and mix with the hands until a getting a compact consistency. Place a baking sheet in a baking pan. Spread & flatten the biscuits dough with a fork. Then place the baking pan in the fridge.
  2.  In a large bowl, mix the pumpkin puree with the milk, sugar, eggs, spices & salt. Pour into the baking pan, and bake for 15 minutes. Then reduce the temperature to 180° and bake for another 40 minutes.
