Pumpkin Pie

6:26 AM

I've made for Halloween my first pumpkin pie and we all loved it! Just so you know,Romanians are not fond of pumpkin,here it's actually called "food for pigs". The last time we went to visit my relatives in the countryside we took one two of these pumpkins for "pigs".
Everyone asked for recipes on how we cook it. People mostly eat squash.
This is the recipe for pumpkin pie that I fell in love with.

130 gr  cookies
1/3 cup butter,at room temperature

450 gr mashed pumpkin (I think it comes in a can in the US)
250 whipping cream
2 eggs
100 gr brown sugar
4 T honey
1 t cinnamon
2 t grated ginger
1 t cloves
1/4 t salt
icing powder for dusting

To make the crust,crumble the cookies and mix them with the butter. With your fingers mold the mixture around the pie form.
Let it sit in the refrigerator until the filling is ready.
To make the filling,mix all the ingredients,adding the eggs one by one.
Put the filling in the form and introduce it in the preheated oven.
Let it bake for about 45 minutes or until the centre  is settled.
Remove and let it cool on a rake.
Dust with icing sugar or serve with whipping cream.
