Pumpkin Pie with Hazelnut Crust
1 1/2 C pumpkin flesh, boiled or microwaved until soft
2/3 C maple syrup (or honey)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1 T minced fresh ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
2 tsp arrowroot

1 C hazelnuts
1 C chestnut flour
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 C coconut milk

sliced pears and ground cinnamon for garnish

Preheat oven to 350. In a blender or food processed, grind hazelnuts
until they resemble a fine meal. Add the remaining crust ingredients
and process until combined. You may need to add a bit more coconut
milk. Press the crust into a pre-greased 8" pie pan. Bake until
light brown and dry, about 10 to 15 minutes. Watch carefully that
the edges do not burn.

Combine all filling ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into the pie crust and bake for 30 minutes, or until the filling
has firmed up. Let cool.
