Method

  1. Step 1:

    Set oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Cut the butternut squash or pumpkin into 3 cm slices. Place on a roasting tray and bake for about 40 minutes until tender.

  2. Step 2:

    Puree the cooked butternut squash or pumpkin in a food processor until smooth. Measure out 250g of puree.

  3. Step 3:

    To make the pastry place the flour and salt in a mixing bowl and rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and egg yolk with the water and mix to a soft dough. Leave to chill.

  4. Step 4:

    Roll out the pastry and use to line a 20cm round pie tin. If you prefer, cut 3cm slits around the edge, fold one corner of each slit over itself to make a triangular pointed edge.

  5. Step 5:

    Fill the pastry case with baking paper and baking beans and bake for 10 minutes, then remove the paper and beans.

  6. Step 6:

    Mix the pumpkin puree with spices, sugar and syrup. Stir in the egg and evaporated milk and beat until smooth.

  7. Step 7:

    Pour into the pastry case and bake for 25-30 mins until the filling has just set in the centre. Cool and serve cold or at room temperature.
