A (easy) recipe for pumpkin pie to celebrate Halloween – The Mountain

Rather than gut a pumpkin to turn it into a lantern, I suggest you cook it.

The Halloween symbol lends itself to a multitude of recipes. To change soups and gratins, why not a sweet pie?

The extra stuff. For a tart even more greedy (but suddenly, sweeter too …), add a thin layer of maple syrup, and sprinkle with a mixture of white sugar, cinnamon and ginger. Diabolical!

This recipe is not that of a chef, it's just mine. At least the one I'm preparing for the fall since an essay that made her "my Halloween pie recipe". She is very simple and here she is.
