    Really delicious; have made this twice - the first time with fresh pumpkin and again today (for Thanksgiving !) with tinned Libby's pumpkin. Makes a change from the traditional pie!  -  29 Nov 2013


    The topping on this pie is fantastic. The pumpkin filling NEEDS pumpkin pie spice. I made it according to the recipe without any changes, and the pumpkin filling was SO BLAND it was awful. A couple of teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice would make this one terrific pumpkin pie!  -  02 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I liked the pecans in the crust of this pie and will add them to future pumpkin pie crusts, but I didn't think the struessel topping was worth the trouble. My family wasn't crazy about this pie either. I'll go back to the traditional pumpkin pie.  -  29 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
