There’s something to endearing about fall followed by winters – the crispness to the air makes everything just oh-so-lovely. There exists a sense of romance to wintery nights, warm pyjamas, hot chocolate and earthy spices, with a very good novel. Despite all my snobbery, I guess I am a bit of a romantic deep inside somewhere!

Pumpkin pie isn’t a very common dish in India. I tend to suffer from major nostalgia during the autumn/winter seasons, particularly Christmas (my favourite time of the year!). And of course, the soul tends to want what it cannot!

So in my retaliation to not being where I want to be this season (New York!), I am celebrating my own version of late Thanksgiving / early Christmas with some delicious pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin pie has many versions – with evaporated milk, condensed milk, cream, heavy cream… but I like to use what I have at hand and what’s easiest. This recipe is for a very small batch – 4 mini pies – using 1 egg and just some milk to create a very light custard. I use a much lesser quantity of brown sugar, but add some maple syrup for depth, along with perhaps an excessive amount of spices. I like to serve this at room temperature, with a dash of whipped cream and sprinkling of cinnamon.
