This pumpkin pie recipe takes inspiration from creme brulee. From Courtney at the food blog Fork to Belly, the pumpkin orange brulee pie is an autumnal dessert that is sure to please. In addition to pumpkin, the treat also contains orange, which makes it an easy dish to transition from fall into winter with.

The fresh pumpkin and the spices that it goes with really set this pumpkin pie recipe apart, compared to others that call for canned pumpkin puree. The recipe is adapted from dishes by Jamie Oliver and Twenty Blackbirds. Right before serving, you sprinkle a considerable amount of caster sugar in an even layer on top. Using a kitchen torch, then brulee the top of the pumpkin filling.
