Apple – Pumpkin Pie with Toffee

This is so fattening, they should serve it at McDonald’s. But it’s also sooooooooooo delicious


What you need:
1/2 Hokkaido pumpkin
5 apples
2 1/2 cup flour
3 oz butter
1 egg
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 cup water

For Toffee
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup double cream
1 tbsp dark honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375. Slice and remove seed from apples. Place them in large baking dish and pour 1 tbsp honey on top and add roughly 1/2 tbsp cinnamon. Stir. Bake for 20 min

In the meantime prepare crust. Remove seed and peel from pumpkin and grate or make very small slices. Mix butter, flour, sugar egg, water and baking soda in a large bowl and stir until it becomes a thick dough. Add some more water if needed
Spread dough on a cake tin, bake for 8 – 10 min.

Remove apples and dough from the oven. Pour the apples on top of the dough and bake for another 15 min.

Heat sugar and cream in a saucepan. Let simmer on low – medium heat for roughly 20 min. Pour in the honey and cinnamon. Remove mixture from theĀ  heat. Depending on how thick you want your toffee to be you can remove it later or earlier that that.
Let it cool down for just a few minutes.

The pie should be done by now, so if you haven’t already, remove from the oven. Remove cake tin and pour some or all of the toffee on top. You can decide whether you want to serve it warm or cold. It taste great warm but it’s really easier to cut if you let it cool down a little. The Toffee will also be a slightly harder by then, which gives the cake a great texture.
If you don’t pour all of the Toffee on top you can keep some warm spoon it on top right before serving.
