Elegant Pie

Hurrah! Your elegant pie
Pumpkin In Filo, is just about done!

At the conclusion of this stage of the tutorial, you'll have plated this very beautiful filo pastry pumpkin pie.

This tutorial has shown how to create a pumpkin pie wrapped in 15 layers of prepared filo pastry.

You now have a pie filled with a delicious filling of fresh pumpkin and marinaded chicken and you've learned how to work what initially seems impossible - the very fine filo pastry.

Is the oven preheated to 360F/180C?

If not do so now.

For successful baking the air temperature in the oven needs to be evenly distributed.

Glaze, Bake, Plate

What you require:

  • Spray can of oil or the remaining oil with the pastry brush
  • The prepared pie encased in filo

Step 1: Glaze

Glaze the pastry by spraying oil all over the filo sheets into every nook and cranny.

If you're doing this manually, use the pastry brush to brush oil onto the filo sheets, and again, take care to get into every exposed surface.

Glazing with oil is an important part of the process as it adds moisture to the pastry and helps with browning.

Step 2: Bake

Place the glazed pie into a preheated oven at 360F/180C.

Place the spring form pan in the lower center of the hot oven.

Bake for 45 minutes till a lovely golden brown.

Look at this gorgeous pumpkin pie - freshly baked, right out of the oven and just beautiful!

Baked fresh pumpkin pie

Leave the pumpkin pie to rest for 10 minutes while it cools.

Step 3: Remove the spring form pan

Release spring form lever

Release the spring on the spring form pan. This will loosen the wall, while the pie continues to sit on the base. Be sure to firmly hold the base on the bottom, when the lever is released.

While holding the base, lift the loosened wall off from above and remove it.
