I love baked pumpkin in baked goods. It is drier and more aromatic. However, if desired, the pumpkin can be steamed or peeled in a little water. The volume of products is indicated on a mold with a diameter of 25 cm.

How to make Pumpkin Lemon Pie
Bake the pumpkin, cut into large pieces with the rind. Cool it down.
In a blender, pulse the flour, sugar, salt, freshly grated lemon zest and sliced butter, sifted with baking powder, in a pulse mode until crumbs.
Add an egg and a spoonful of ice water. Beat the dough until it starts to form into a ball.
Spread the dough in an even layer in a split form, lifting the sides. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Punch the baked pumpkin pulp until smooth. Measure out 400 grams of puree.
Add sugar, sour cream, semolina and eggs to the pumpkin puree. Grate the zest of two lemons and puree. Also add the sliced lemons (pulp), after removing the pits and rind, especially if it is thick.
Remove the mold from the freezer and pour the filling onto the base. It should not be higher than the sides. Excess, if any, can be poured into curly molds and baked in the oven or microwave, and then used to decorate the cake.
Bake the cake at 160 degrees on the lower heat until the edges and filling set. Then increase the temperature to 180 degrees and bake until the middle of the pie is firm.
Leave the finished pie in the form until it cools, then carefully place on the wire rack and cool completely. Decorate the cake to your liking.
