    This recipe makes a really great pumpkin pie! I made it for Thanksgiving (still celebrate it even though I live in the UK now!) and it is exactly what I wanted. I had lots of filling leftover so made 2. I used pureed pumpkin that I made from Halloween pumpkins and had in the freezer. For the crust, I used the recipe on for Miracle Baking Powder Pie Crust and used butter instead of shortening. Served with some squirty cream and it was just gorgeous! - 22 Nov 2012
