Kabocha Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Recipe by: Eat A Duck I Must

[rm_recipes image=’/wp-content/themes/queenbee_v3/images/rm_ingredients.png’]


1 1/4 cups kabocha squash puree
2 eggs
1 yolk
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons condensed milk
1/2 cup cream
1g of gelatin powder (this is optional but it gives a hold to the pie and will cut out nicely)
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 9-in store bought graham cracker crust

  1. Cut the Kabocha squash and remove the seeds, scraping out as much of the string as possible. Cut into the flesh and place in a steamer. Steam until the flesh is soft enough to be scooped.
  2. Scoop out the flesh and place in a blender with enough water to get it going. Pass the puree through a sieve to remove any large clumps. (This is an optional step but sure to impress.)
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the 2 eggs and 1 yolk, along with the brown sugar. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Bloom the gelatin in with a little water and stir to remove any clumps. Warm the cream on low heat and add the bloomed gelatin. Stir until the gelatin has dissolved.
  5. Slowly add the cream while whisking the egg mixture. Add the pumpkin, salt, vanilla, pumpkin spice and cinnamon to the mixture. Whisk until the mixture is smooth. Pass the mixture through a sieve to remove any clumps.
  6. Pre-heat the oven to 325F. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and bake for 45-50 minutes until the pie has set. Remove and let it cool before serving.
Cook’s Note:

One (1) kabocha pumpkin should have enough puree to make 2 pies.  You can make the filling ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to a week. Leftover pie filling can be made into pumpkin creme brulee by baking it in a ramekin, placing it in a water bath and bake at 250F for 45 mins or until it is set.

  1. Genius idea! Who would’ve thought of using kabocha squash to replace pumpkin in pumpkin pies? Love the sweet taste & texture of kabocha.


  3. I’m glad to have stumbled upon this recipe. I love kabocha pumpkins, and I love pumpkin pies. This is a perfect mash of the two!

  4. The slice from your pie looks inviting…YUM!!

    I could skip the rest of the dinner and just go for that yummy-looking slice of pie! happy Thanksgiving and thank you for your blog!

  6. I love pumpkin pie.

  7. Finally , I’ve found the perfect pumpkin pie. Great recipe and delicious taste.

  8. This really is the perfect recipe, light, simple, delicious!

  9. Hi, just wondering what spices and quantities are in the ‘pumpkin pie spice’, as I’m in New Zealand, so it would be hard to find here :) Will be googling a recipe for the graham cracker crust too as I doubt we have that here also.

  10. I love how you laid out your shots. The little pretty autumn leaves completed the picture. Also, thanks for the substitution of kabocha squash. I can’t seem to find sugar pumpkins in Malaysia, much less pumpkin puree! I’d probably have to try sweet potato puree!

    hola como estan que rico se esa comida y el postre ni ablar. bendiciones

  12. Where does the sweetened condensed milk go? I just made this pie but didn’t add it. Was it supposed to be part of the “cream” mixture? The recipe doesn’t say. My pies are in the oven now. I hope the omission isn’t fatal.
