This pumpkin pie is flavoured with honey and spices. The honey gives the pumpkin filling a special depth in flavour. It's perfect served with a dollop of whipped cream.
Sugar pumpkins are smaller versions of the big orange pumpkins you find during Halloween. They are sweeter and have more flavour.
I wasn't able to find a fresh pumpkin anywhere for Thanksgiving, so I substituted one 19 oz. can of pumpkin in this recipe. It was absolutely fantastic; spicy, rich, and not too sweet. My mom, who thought she didn't like pumpkin pie, had two pieces. - 29 Nov 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

This tastes like any other pumpkin pie with the crunch of pecans. It is good. I recommend using a pie crust shield or tinfoil around the outer crust to prevent overbrowning. Also, I recommend cooking the pumpkin using the microwave method as it saves over an hour of time even if you have to cook the pumpkin in batches. - 12 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
