Pumpkin pie (pumpkin pie)

Pumpkin pie or, Halter, pumpkin pie. You know that every lunch in American movies invariably ends with a huge slice of apple pie (the Apple Pie) or pumkin pie (the pumpkin pie)? Well, I fully understand the love of Americans for Apple Pie, but I couldn't figure out what the pumpkin pie, that seemed like a sweet mysterious and indefinable flavor. When I found the pumpkin market fit (If you find that dust ruffle, small, green out, or butternut squash from the elongated shape is even better) I decided to prepare it at home. Among other things, October is the month of Halloween and pumpkins. As you know if you follow me for a while’ I don't post never a cupcake for Halloween, party doesn't belong to me culturally and I can't hear, but this great cake instead I amazing. And now I understand the Americans: the dough for pie, neutral substantially, He married a dense filling, sweet, rustic and very aromatic. Perfect with a little’ of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. And if you like cakes with pumpkin you should definitely try my pumpkin and Almond Cake, that's even without butter: I recommend it highly!

THE PAIRING: In Piozzo, a small town in Piedmont, pumpkin fair once again. And Teo Musso, holder of Baladin, drawing on its American beer called pumpkin-ale wanted to celebrate this feast honoring your own country and producing a beer with this multipurpose vegetable. Us, to our recipe, We tried to match her beer, that is called “Pumpkin". And the results are interesting. The pumpkin pie is in fact a massive cake, every bite makes busy tasting, the pastry is Pasty and the topping is equally dense. The result is a thick sweet, much material, that goes perfectly with this beer with good body, by scents of cinnamon, with sweet and very well balanced bitter.
