    Great recipe that is quick and easy to put together. Be careful not to add in the light corn syrup twice however...writing the recipe with a 1/4 cup of syrup in each part would be easier. Tastes great though and a nice addition to our Thanksgiving meal!  -  22 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent. Traditional with a extra bonus of swirled cream cheese. My family loved it. I will definately keep this in my favorite file.  -  23 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Fantastic! I agree with the previous reviewers - because of the way the recipe is written, it's easy to make a mistake with the corn syrup, and add too much to the cream cheese mixture. But if you follow the directions carefully, you will end up with a fabulous, fluffy pumpkin pie, enhanced with chunks of sweetened cream cheese. One other note - I used homemade pie crust, and only needed a regular 9-inch pie plate. The recipe calls for a deep dish crust, which seems a little excessive for the amount of filling.  -  16 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
