About this recipe: If you like a spicier pumpkin pie, this is the recipe for you. A shortcrust pastry case is filled with a sweet and spicy pumpkin filling. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
overall, this is a very good pie with a nice taste. the time for baking is much longer than 30 mins at 325 however. Every time I have baked this it was at least 50 mins. Because of this amount of time in the oven, you may want to put aluminum foil around the edge of the pie to prevent the crust from becoming too brown. - 21 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The way you make the design is you just use a second pie crust and use the dough.. Just roll it out and use cookie cutters to cut out your designs.. place them on top and wala!!! :-) - 03 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
