    This is my husband's favourite pumpkin pie. It's less spicy than traditional pumpkin pies so you can really taste the pumpkin flavour!

    I made a few changes to this recipes I double the vanilla extract. I substitute cream for the evaporated milk.  -  27 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Perfect!! But with a few changes... I used condensed milk instead of evaporated, because I like thick, creamy pumpkin pie, and I used fresh pumpkin instead of canned. I followed others advice and increased the vanilla, added some nutmeg, and replaced a third of the white sugar with brown. It turned out great, and is my new favorite pumpkin pie recipe! Thanks a lot!  -  04 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    this recipe is extremely simple. however, it does need some tweaking. after following the directions exactly and reading the reviews after, i would say definitely wrap the crust in foil (mine burned and i only had it in for 28 minutes of the specified 40 at the end), do up the amount of vanilla, and do use more spice. not a bad recipe, just not as flavorful as you might expect from pumpkin pie.  -  31 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
