Lay pumpkin on a baking sheet, cover with foil and cook in oven for 15- 20 minutes until soft.

Meanwhile roll out pastry and use to line flan tin.

Line with baking paper and fill with baking beans and bake blind for 15 minutes until just cooked but not too brown.

When the pumpkin is cooked, place in a food processor with sugar, cream, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla and whizz together until well mixed. Alternatively you can mix them all together by hand with a wire whisk.
