Pumpkin Pie

Hello Everyone,

I love pumpkin recipes, and this one is from my childhood; well, I tried to follow, but it is me always changing something. The traditional one is with sugar, but as I avoid it, change it with honey. It is very quick, tasty and sweet.

Time: 30 min
Servings: 20 – 25
  • 800 gr pumpkin
  • 120 gr walnuts
  • 5 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 7-8 sheets filo pastry
Optional Ingredience:
  • 2 tbsp. honey or
  • 2 tbsp. powder sugar
How To:
  1. Peel the pumpkin and cut on tiny cubes, or if you want, you can blend it for a puree.
  2. To a pre-heated saucer pan, add the olive oil and wait abt 2 minutes before adding the pumpkin.
  3. Fry the pumpkin for about 10 minutes and add the walnuts, cinnamon and honey and stir well.
  4. Lay one filo sheet on a clean work surface and spread the pumpkin mixture approximately one full spoon from one end into a line. I did from the short end, but you can do with the wider one as well.
  5. Roll to the other end and cut the roll into pieces as big as you wish. I cut them into four 🙂
  6. Another option is to spread the pumpkin mixture all over the filo sheet, but keep in mind that it will be more pumpkin in this case. ( the big pieces on the photos below)
  7. Place on a baking tray with baking paper.
  8. Bake at 170 degrees for about 10-12 minutes until golden.
  9. Leave to cool down and garnish with honey or powder sugar.

It is a tasty sweet snack for afternoon coffee 🙂 My parents usually prepare this around Christmas by adding significantly more honey or sugar.

Enjoy 🙂
