How to make Pumpkin pie with chocolate
To prepare the pastry, combine all the powders (flour, cocoa, sugar, and yeast). Add the cubed cold butter and eggs. Start kneading until a lump-free dough is formed.

Wrap in plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
After this time, roll out the pastry with the help of a rolling pin and place them in a pan. Pierce the edges of the crust with a fork, place a sheet of parchment paper and bake in the oven at 355°F for 30 minutes. In this step, we want the base to cook without swelling.

Steam the pumpkin and blend it once cooked. Separately, beat the eggs with the sugar to obtain a frothy mixture. Add the cream cheese, chopped pumpkin and grated ginger. Now, pour the mixture into the cooked shortcrust pastry and put it back in the oven at 355°F for at least 40 minutes.
The pumpkin pie is now ready! Wait for it to cool before serving.
