"Tarte à la Queurde" also known as Pumpkin Pie

In my area, people were used to make the "tarte à la queurde". In patois, "queurde" is  "squash" and eventually "pumpkin".  I tried to translate the French recipe...

    • Pie pastry

    • 200g pumpkin

    • 1 tsp cinnamon

    • 1 orange

    • 25 cl crème fraîche

    • 2 eggs

    • 100 g sugar

    • 1 tsp crystal sugar

    Squeeze juice from orange.

    Peel the pumpkin and dice it. Put it in a pan with 50g sugar. Add orange juice and water in order to just cover pumpkin.

    Cook on a low heat, stirring from time to time until the liquid (fluid?) is boiled off and pumpkin slightly golden.

    Take out of heat and let it cool down.

    Blend the pumpkin in order to get a puree.

    Pre-heat the oven (210°C)

    Put the pie pastry in a buttered mold. « Jab » it with a fork.

    In a bowl, beat cream with eggs, 50g sugar and cinnamon.

    Add the pumpkin puree and mix it

    Pour the mixture in the pie pastry.

    Put in oven for about 20/25 minutes.

    Remove it from the mold and let it cool down

    Before serving, powder crystal sugar.
