About this recipe: Traditional pumpkin pie, a Christmas institution in North America, never calls for nuts. This pumpkin tart recipe is a nice twist on that tradition.

  • 1 recipe pastry for a 23cm tart
  • 500g pumpkin, cooked and pureed
  • 1 (397g) tin condensed sweetened milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Walnut topping
  • 4 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 25g butter
  • 100g chopped walnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas mark 4. Roll out pastry and line a 23cm (9 in) pie dish or tart tin.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, condensed milk, egg, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt. Pour mixture into the pastry case.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes and remove tart. Reduce oven temperature to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
