Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This pumpkin tart recipe comes credit to Marna Ross, my wife, and best friend. I love it when she bakes this pumpkin tart. The spices and smell of pumpkin fill the entire house and remind me of a good time in my life when I was little and spent the school holidays on a farm in Newcastle.

It is a traditional and classic pumpkin tart recipe and can be made with pumpkins or butternut. Both taste equally good and it is almost impossible to taste the difference between the pumpkin or butternut.;

Many people eat squashed or mashed butternut as a side dish and many restaurants list pumpkin as a vegetable of the day. Pumpkin as a side dish tastes good, but this pumpkin pie tastes better and looks good on a plate. I love this pumpkin pie as a side dish with savoury dishes like stew or roasts.

The pumpkin pie tastes good as is, or you can serve it by sprinkling a little cinnamon over the top or drenching it in a meaty gravy. We have tried a few variations, and they all work well.
