Biscuit Base instructions Preheat oven to 200°C. In a mixer chop up the packet of gingernuts, add the butter and flour. Press into a round flan dish and bake for 15 minutes until nearly cooked. Remove from the oven and cool.
Pumpkin Pie Filling Slice the pumpkin into wedges. Place on a baking tray and use a pastry brush to lightly oil the pumpkin. Bake for at least 30 minutes until soft. Remove from the oven and cool.In a mixer blend together 2 cups of pumpkin (skins removed), spices, and salt. Beat in the eggs, honey, milk and cream. Pour this filling into the shell. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
Serve slightly warm with Greek yoghurt, lemon drizzle, lemon curd or freshly whipped cream. Delicious! NB If you want an easier option, you could substitute the gingernut base with pastry, however the nutritional analysis will be different.
