ABC November 2012 - Velvety Pumpkin Tart

Been a while since the last time I made tart, a great change after baking all those cakes :)
This is the first bake I made using pumpkin
I'm not a fan of pumpkin, so I never think that I would love any bake with pumpkin
This tart has proven me wrong
It's so delicious I ate two slices at one go after kept it in the refrigerator for 3 hours, and I had to refrain myself from opening the fridge and eating more!







This tart is really easy to make, just mix all ingredients for the crust, press on the pan, and bake for awhile
Beat all ingredients with electric mixer and you have the filling
Pour on the crust, continue to bake and that's it
Let cool, keep in the fridge for 3 hours at least and it's ready for consumption
One thing is, I do not have pie pan with removable bottom, so it's quite a struggle to have a piece of pie with nice cut

I made slightly more than half recipe with 18cm pie pan
Using digestive biscuit instead since I'm not a fan of ginger biscuits
I couldn't find canned pumpkin which is not pumpkin pie filling, so I made my own pumpkin puree - which I think it's better :)
I didn't use ground cloves, simply cos I have no stock
Reduced sugar used for the filling and added some butter for the crust to make it more moist

This recipe is from the book The Weekend Baker by Abigail Johnson Dodge, a great book with so many tried and tested keeper recipes
Such a luscious, creamy filling on a delicious crust, pure indulgence indeed!
I am seriously thinking of being more adventurous with pumpkin :)

Thanks to Avid Baker's Challenge event for allowing me to experience the unexpected :)
This post is for you :)

  1. Hi Alice! Yes, I totally agree, this is one delicious pumpkin tart! I ate two slices at one sitting! Yummilicious! Getting canned pumpkin puree is not easy over here, got to find it from the special supermarket which is quite a distance away, and very expensive, so I made my own too! Definitely better than canned ones! I will continue on baking from this book even though we are starting from a new book next year, and cannot wait to see which book we will be baking from in 2013! It's only a month plus away! Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Alice, I'm glad you went ahead and baked the tart even though you're not a big pumpkin fan. Isn't it nice to be pleasantly surprised? :o) I always thought I didn't like pumpkin pie until I made my own (I just didn't like store bought pumpkin pie, haha). I will be baking this tart later this month because I'm currently visiting my mom and they don't have canned pumpkin here, unless I find fresh pumpkin and make my own puree.
    As for next year, I will be sending a survey soon :o)

  7. Wow! What a delicious looking tart & the color is so inviting ! I'm a huge pumpkin fan ! After looking at yours & Joyce's pumpkin tart, I'm definitely trying this recipe. I can't find any canned pumpkin puree over here too so I always made my own. I think it's better use your own fresh made puree than canned ones. It's more tasty , I'm sure of that! :)hehehehehe

  9. Someone just gave me 1/5 of a pumpkin which was about 2 kg pumpkin without skin, and I was wondering what to do with it, besides making pumpkin rice and huat kueh. Pumpkin pie sounds like a good idea, but my hubby was complaining that I have steamed too many cakes over the past month. Have to watch my sugar intake! :)

  11. What a lovely pie, it looks just perfect. Love that the filling is as high as the rim (mine sank down). Good job!

  12. Your pie looks great, and tempts me to give it a try (minding your recommendations regarding the sugar) when I'm back from our trip to Mexico.
