    I've used this recipe for 3 years now and it is always a big hit. Lighter pumpkin taste than the average pumpkin pie, but creamy and very yummy! Needs time to set up.  -  05 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Pumpkin pie is my favorite, and the one made from this recipe is the best I've ever had. I replace half of the cinammon with "pumpkin pie spice" ... I've always done that and I have no idea if it's better or worse that way.  -  26 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The only change I made was to put it in a graham cracker crust and less milk so that it didn't over flow. It was so good I am going to make the exact same pie for Thanksgiving. My picky 9 year old even liked it!  -  29 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
