    Red face Pentacle Pumpkin Pie

    Pentacle Pumpkin Pie

    1 1/2lb fresh Pumpkin
    4oz super fine Sugar
    3 eggs
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    3 teaspoons cinnamon
    5 tablespoons evaporated milk
    10oz flour
    2 1/2oz hard butter
    2 1/2oz crisco
    3-4 tablespoons water

    1) Place Pumpkin (cored, peeled and diced) into a colander over boiling water and steam for about 20 minutes (or until tender). Then mash to a pulp and set aside to cool.

    2) Sift the flour and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon into a bowl. Cut in the butter and crisco until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs.

    3) Mix with water to form a firm dough, knead lightly and roll out onto a floured board.

    4) Lightly grease and then line a round Pie pan with the pastry, reserving the pastry trimmings.

    5) Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes.

    6) Whisk the eggs and sugar together adding the nutmeg, ginger and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Fold in the mashed Pumpkin and 4 tablespoons of milk, then pour into the pastry case.

    7) Roll out pastry trimmings and cut into strips. Form pentacle with strips, using milk to stick down, then brush remaining milk over any visible pastry.

    8) Bake at 375F for about 40 minutes or until filling has set. Sprinkle with a little sugar and serve hot or cold! Delicious hot with ice cream or whipped cream!
    Baking in advance of your Samhain celebrations can enable you to add a touch of Kitchen Witchery to it, and preparing food with love and care is a great way to imbue them with that extra special energy that home cooked foods really have.
