Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200c and place a wire rack over a baking sheet. In a large bowl, toss chicken wings with oil and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Transfer to prepared baking sheet.
  2. Bake until chicken is golden and skin is crispy, 50 to 60 minutes, flipping the wings halfway through.
  3. In a small saucepan, whisk together hot sauce and honey. Bring to simmer then stir in butter. Cook until butter is melted and slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Heat grill on low. Transfer baked wings to a bowl and toss with buffalo sauce until completely coated. Return wings to rack and grill until sauce caramelises, around 3 minutes - watch the wings carefully at stage!

  • 1 cup unsalted butter - chilled cut into tablespoon-size pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons ice water
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
Instructions
Make the pie crust
  1. Combine flour, salt, and butter in a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, about 10 1-second pulses.
  2. Stir water and vinegar in a small bowl.
  3. Pour half the ice water and vinegar mixture into the flour and butter mixture. Pulse to combine, about 3 (1-second) pulses. Pour in remaining ice water and vinegar mixture. Pulse until mixture just starts to come together, about 8 (1-second) pulses.
  4. Turn dough out onto a wooden surface, pat into round shape and divide in half. Form each half into a disc about 15cm wide.
  5. Wrap each disc in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes until ready to use.
To make the pie
  1. Preheat oven 220 degrees C
  2. Whisk together pumpkin puree, egg yolks, and egg in a large bowl until smooth. Add sweetened condensed milk, cinnamon, ginger, salt, nutmeg, and Chinese 5-spice powder; whisk until thoroughly combined.
  3. Fit pie crust in a 20cm pie dish and crimp edges.
  4. Pour filling into the pie shell and lightly tap on the work surface to release any air bubbles.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Reduce heat to 175 degrees C and bake until just set in the middle, 30 to 40 more minutes. A paring knife inserted into the filling, 10cm from the crust, should come out clean. Allow to cool completely before serving.
