Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup soft medjool dates 1/2 cup packed with chopped, pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree

  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F / 180 C.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor pulse the dates and maple syrup together. It will seem like a chunky, sticky mess at first, but have faith.
  3. Add 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree to thin it out a bit, then run the food processor until the mixture seems smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl a few times.
  4. Add the rest of the pumpkin, and the spices and salt, and puree until smooth.
  5. With the motor running, add the eggs one at a time until each is well incorporated. Add the milk, and mix until it is thoroughly blended in.
  6. Pour the filling into a blind-baked pie crust right up to the very top of the crust.

  7. Place the pie into the oven and bake for 40 - 45 minutes. The filling will be puffed up, and shouldn't be too jiggly when you give it a bit of a shake.

  8. Remove your pie from the oven and cool for about an hour, then place it in the fridge to cool for a few more hours, up to over night (I always think pumpkin pie tastes better the next day). Enjoy!
