Pumpkin Pie, Winter Luxury instructions
- Yield: One 9-inch deep dish pie or two 8-inch shallow pies. Preheat oven to 350 degrees..
- Wash the exterior of the pumpkin in cool or warm water, no soap..
- Cut the pumpkin in half. A serrated knife and a sawing motion works best – a smooth knife is more likely to slip..
- Scrape the insides. You want to get out that stringy, dangly stuff that coats the inside surface. Note: can save seeds to cook separately..
- Place it cut side down into a covered oven container. Fill container with 3/4" water. Cover the ovenproof container (with a lid), and pop it in a 350 F (165 C) oven. It normally takes about 45 minutes to 90 minutes (it can vary a lot!); just test it periodically by sticking it with a fork to see if it is soft!.
- Scoop out the cooked pumpkin..
- Puree the pumpkin. To get a nice, smooth consistency, I use a Pillsbury hand blender. By blending it, you give the pie a smooth, satiny texture; rather than the rough graininess that is typical of cooked squashes. Note: You may freeze the puree or pie filling to use it later! Just use a freezer bag or other container to exclude as much air as possible. It should last a year or more in a deep freezer..
- Mix in all ingredients. Make the pie crust (I use Pillsbury) It is also time to start preheating the oven. Turn it on and set it to 425 F..
- Bake at 425 F for the first 15 minutes, then turn the temperature down to 350 F and bake another 45 to 60 minutes, until a clean knife inserted into the center comes out clean..
When cut into a wedge on a plate, it holds its shape, color, & flavor long after the competition has keeled. Small, spherical winter luxury pie has a distinctive lacy webbing on its skin, and flesh similar in texture to an acorn squash's, though not as sweet in flavor. Winter Luxury is a great baking pumpkin, makes terrific pumpkin cheesecake, pies, puddings, muffins, and pancakes. Winter Luxury is only a middling keeper but requires a long season and some warm nights to mature well. I coddle them and keep row coverings handy come late August.
