So, generally my dessert taste just righted and there is nothing else I can ask for, not too much sweet but we are still enjoying some sweetness flavor of the pumpkin pie. My homemade whipped cream giving more sweetness flavor and went well with the pumpkin pie. Plus, we refreshing the afternoon heat with cold drink I prepare with this dessert like Thai Ice Tea.
Pumpkin pie has some spices and creamy flavors from the heavy cream, cinnamon, clove, and ginger spices. As well, the crust gave some creamy flavor from mascarpone cheese and crispy when baking all together with the pumpkin pie filling.

Pumpkin Purée Preparation
Peeled off the pumpkin skin then cut into a chuck cube.
Boiled in a large pot with filtered water for about 20 minutes or until the pumpkin soften.
Rinsed all the left of water out and put the cooked pumpkin into a blender. Blended until all the pumpkin looked purée.
If the pumpkin big I can use half for next day pumpkin pie and I will store the left of pumpkin purée in a freezer to keep the pumpkin purée fresh until I use it again.
When need to use the pumpkin purée, take out from the freezer at least 2 to 3 hours before use. So, this way I let the pumpkin purée defrost itself before I use it.
