Question pumpkin pie

hi, I am a Turkish girl and I want to cook pumpkin pie for my boyfriend.he had spent a year in US a few years ago and he says pumpkin pie is his favourite dessert.
I tried to prepare one using an American recipe but as most of you know, many ingredients cannot be found in Turkey.I dont even know how a pumpkin pie should taste like but I know mine was a disaster So, I need your help.
I know it is traditional in US but I dont know if any American is here on this forum.
I also dont know if pumpkin pie is a traditional dessert in any other place and if that recipe is different than the American one or not.Yeas, I dont know anything .oh I know my boyfriend likes the one he ate in US
So I would be very grateful if someone is here to explain how to prepare a pumpkin pie from scratch.one important thing is to be able to cook a delicious one using Turkish ingridients, I mean using things that I can find in Turkey.
Thank you

Re: pumpkin pie

I know that you can get canned pumkin but not sure where in Turkey. I would try and see where the closest american embassy is and get on to their general info email and tell them what you are trying to do and they may be charmed enough to suggest a local goods shop that stocks some international goods, get your self sorted to have a thanksgiving party etc. Nothing to loose and I find if you ask people nicely and with a good story like yours you are sure to get a nice response. There is probably an international americans in turkey group that you could google first. Good luck.

Re: pumpkin pie

This is courtesy the BBC.

Ingredients
For the pastry
sweet short crust pastry case (or a packet of ready made sweet short crust pastry with 40g/1½oz crushed pecans mixed in.)
For the filling
450 g/1lb prepared weight pumpkin flesh, cut into 1in/2.5 cm chunks
2 large eggs plus 1 yolk (use the white for another dish)
3 oz/75g soft dark brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ level teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
½ tsp ground allspice
½ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp ground ginger
10 fl oz/275 ml double cream
Preparation method
Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Use a shop bought sweet crust pastry case, about 9 inch/23 cm diameter and 1½ inches/4 cm deep.
To make the filling, steam the pumpkin then place in a coarse sieve and press lightly to extract any excess water.
Then lightly whisk the eggs and extra yolk together in a large bowl.
Place the sugar, spices and the cream in a pan, bring to simmering point, giving it a whisk to mix everything together. Then pour it over the eggs and whisk it again briefly.
Now add the pumpkin pureé, still whisking to combine everything thoroughly.
Pour the filling into your pastry case and bake for 35-40 minutes, by which time it will puff up round the edges but still feel slightly wobbly in the centre.
Remove the pie from the oven and place the tin on a wire cooling rack. Serve chilled (stored loosely covered in foil in the fridge) with some equally chilled créme fraïche, but warm or at room temperature would be fine.

Good luck.

Re: pumpkin pie

Foxes Glove BBC recipe is a good one but to give the authentic flavour, rather than steam pumpkin chunks, bake unpeeled slices of pumpkin in the oven until the flesh is soft, then mash and add to the mixture.

Re: pumpkin pie

Agree wholeheartedly with Shirley- roast the pumpkin rather than steaming it. The dry heat gives it a sweetness and intensity of flavor. I love anything made with pumpkin!
