Method :
  • Preheat oven to 220oC/425oF/Gas 7. For the pastry, sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Rub in the fat until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Sprinkle in enough water to form the mixture into a ball.
  • Roll out the pastry to a 4mm thickness. Use to line a 23cm tin. Trim and flute the edge. Sprinkle the chopped pecan nuts over the base of the case.
  • Beat together the pumpkin, cream, sugar, salt, spices and eggs. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the pastry case. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 180oC/350oF/Gas 4 and continue baking until the filling is set, about 45 minutes. Leave the pie to cool in the tin, set on a wire rack.
