Ingredients

For the crust

  • 200 g plain flour
  • 100 g butter
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon milk

For the filling

  • cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 small eggs
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • whipped cream for decorating (optional)

Instructions

  • To make the crust, cut the cold butter into cubes and add it to a bowl together with the sifted flour.
  • Use your fingertips to rub them together until you get a breadcrumb-like texture.
  • Add the egg, sugar and milk, and knead them into a dough that does not stick to the hands.
  • Cover the dough in clingfilm, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Use a rolling pin to cut out circles of 4 inches/10 cm in diameter.
  • Place the dough circles in each cavity of the muffin tin and press down gently to cover it.
  • To make the filling, use a hand mixer or whisk to mix all the ingredients together to a smooth texture.
  • Divide the filling between each pie crust, and bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (350 Fahrenheit) for 23-25 minutes until the crust is golden and the filling is set.
  • Leave to cool completely before decorating with whipped cream.
