American pumpkin pie

American pumpkin pie turns out to be dizzyingly delicious if you strictly follow all the directions of the classic recipe and ... choose the right main ingredient of the filling! Why do we place such emphasis on the latter circumstance? The fact is, not all pumpkins are the same sweet. And the color of their flesh varies from yellow to rich bright orange. We often “buy” on the exterior and choose the vegetable that is more beautiful on the outside. But in fact, nutmeg pumpkin is considered ideal for dessert - an elongated shape, with a discreet sandy peel. But underneath it hides an incredibly fragrant and sweet pulp, which is a must for our American pumpkin pie! As a result, you will get something amazing and understand the people of the United States who prepare these pastries for Thanksgiving, and in general for every more or less festive occasion.
