Kolokithopitta glykia (sweet pumpkin pie)

Ingredients

  • 1 yellow pumking of 3 kilos
  • ¾ cup of oil
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • ½ cup of honey
  • 2-3 cups of nuts
  • 2-3 cups of black and sultana raisin
  • 3 cups of sesame
  • Plenty of cinnamon
  • 1 spoon of salt
  • 4 home made pastry sheets or 6-7 frozen

You cut the pumpkin in the middle, throw away the seeds and the strings of its inside part and grate it piece by piece with the onion grater or with a spoon (every half piece).

Pour the salt in the pumpkin, leave it to strain for a while and then squeeze it.

Put the pumpkin with some oil inside a swallow stewpot and cook it until it looses all its juices and dries up. Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir the mix for a while.

Spread with oil the baking pan and put 2 sheets inside. Spread the mix and cover every spot of the pan. Cover it with the other 2 sheets after spreading with oil and sprinkle with some water the top of the pie. Cook it on a medium heat.

The sweet pumpkin pie is very tasty and better cooked with home made pastry sheets. You can serve it after meal, as a dessert.
