Pumpkin Pie


Autumn is all about pies, right? At least, about apple and pumpkin pies! So yep, I made a pumpkin pie. A very unpopular one, in fact. I tried to impress everyone with my oh-so fantastic skill of cutting out leaves from the crust dough. But nope, it didn't help, either.
I guess, no one is up for pumpkins here! Not my family, not friends. No one. Not even me. Seriously, how sad is this? 
But hold up...it gets even sadder. I made this pie from scratch with fresh pumpkin. Just imagine, I dealt with the whole fuss of a fresh pumpkin! And no one got like ooooh-aaaah this is just soooo gooood like I imagined someone at least would. Nope, the best review I got was: yeah, it tastes like pumpkin. It's good. But it tastes like pumpkin. 
Gosh!
Now, I will share the recipe and if you still like pumpkins I will encourage you to try this recipe out because it really is a good one! I made one last year (yes, from fresh pumpkin) but it was not nearly as good as this one and last year's was not bad at all. Working with fresh pumpkin is pretty easy too! And oh so much healthier! The unpopularity of mine was probably due to the fact that pumpkin desserts are not very known or beloved in Hungary. But looking at other blogs, I can tell that it is a huge it. Now being October, too...

Pumpkin Pie

for the crust

1 1/4 cup flour
3 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup butter - cold and diced
1/4 cup teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold water

for the filling

2 cups pumpkin puree - about half kg with its peel on
2/3 cup cane sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 ts ginger
1 ts nutmeg
3 beaten eggs
2/3 cup condensed milk

First off, let's take the pumpkin slice and put it in a big bowl. Add water so the pumpkin would sit in it and place it in the microwave and heat it for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes, take it out and carve the pumpkin out of its peel. Puree it and set it aside.

Now for the crust. Combine flour, sugar, salt together. Add the diced butter and pulse to mix. It will be very crumbly, then add the cold water, 1 spoon at a time. Pulse it again until the dough comes together. Knead the dough for a few seconds then wrap it in plastic and chill it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

For the filling, combine the pumpkin puree, sugar, spices together. Add the eggs and then the condensed milk and mix it together. If your new to baking a pie, the batter will be liquid but do not worry, it should be like this.

Now, roll the pie crust out and place it in the pie pan. Shape the crust with a fork and then pour the pumpkin batter into it. Cover with a foil and bake for 30 minutes on 190C. After 30 minutes, remove the foil and bake for another 30 minutes.

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Pad Thai

I feel so bad about not posting anything for weeks. I have my excuses. But who likes hearing about excuses? Not me! So probably no one else, either.  Although I'd like to share that I have finished writing my thesis! I wrote about the crises' of South Asia. It was such a drag...I had a serious writer's block going on and I procrastinated so much that in the end I had 2 weeks left to write the whole thing. I basically did nothing besides writing, eating and sleeping. Exciting life, huh? Now that it's over, I've got even more scholar stuffs to do than before! But I'll be graduating in 2 months, if all goes well...So that's worth all the hard work, right? :)
But enough about me and let's talk about these noodles! I do not think there's one person who wouldn't like pad thai! Even those who swear not to eat any weird looking asian food, like my Grandma, will like this meal after having one bite! It is an authentic thai recipe, due to my Mom went to a Th…
