Jack O' Lantern Sweet Pumpkin Pie

Halloween is coming and there will always be pie on the table. 
Why not make it this cute awesome bite-size spice-less pumpkin pie? 
Decorated like a jack-o-lantern makes it festive but you sure can skip it and do a fall themed party or do it for Thanksgiving.


This is not your traditional pumpkin pie spice flavour. It is more of a subtle sweet and buttery, custard like filling in the pie. It is not overly sweet with an extra boost of pumpkin.

Stick around, there will be 4 more Halloween themed videos coming soon -> If you like it please share it, the support gives us motivation to make more content!! Happy Halloween~

Infographic Recipe will be updated soon!

I. You can use fresh pumpkin and make your own puree, we use canned 100% pumpkin (Please do not use canned pumpkin pie filling)
II. You can make your own homemade pie crust, we use store bought for convenience
III. This is not your typical “fall” pumpkin pie flavour with all the spices, it is a sweet and buttery, custard-like pie. Try it before you bash it!
IV. If you cannot find coconut milk powder, substitute with 1 tbsp of coconut milk and only use 90g milk
