Pumpkin Pie

From the food blog from Rayleigh, a seasonally appropriate recipe for pumpkin pie … with a refreshingly frank verdict from the cook:

I can?t say I was blown away by it. The flavour was definitely pumpkin but I couldn?t help thinking something was missing. It needs perhaps a layer of chocolate icing to offset the smooth, uniform flavour. And I added lemon zest to the pastry but I think orange would be a better choice. Maybe I?m just not darn American enough.

It does look good.
