We are having Thanksgiving at my house this year. It will be my first so I wanted to practice making pumpkin pie before the big day. This recipe tasted better than any pumpkin pie I have ever eaten. The filling was very creamy and perfectly spiced. I am thrilled at how it turned out and can't wait to impress my family with it. Thanks Nurse Di.

This is a great pumpkin pie according to my hubby. Since Thanksgiving is next week I needed to try this recipe out first and today was the day. When DH took his first bite I heard a big sigh! When I asked him how it tasted he just smiled and said..."like more"! I followed your recipe exactly and the only difference was having to remove it from the oven about 10 minutes sooner than called for. Certainly not a problem with the recipe, but the difference in appliances. Thanks for another great Zaar recipe Nurse Di. This is going in the 'keeper' file. I also like the fact that I can use fat-free sweetened condensed milk in it to lower the calories somewhat and the texture and creaminess of the pie is not affected at all.

Made this for the 1st time for Thanksgiving, and New Years 2010. Received RAVE reviews. I did, however, reduce the amount of sugar to 1/2 C packed brown sugar and omitted the tsp. of regular sugar. The condensed milk is sweet enough. This will be a "staple" pie every year from now on.

A very rich creamy textured pie. I liked it a lot and will be using it again. A tip: I was able to get two 9" pies out of this recipe by one and a halfing it. In doing so I was able to use up most of my can of pumkin and all of my can of condensed milk without having the rest of it lurking in my fridge waiting for another recipe to be used in. I had to open 2 cans of eagle brand milk to get enough and I ended up just under 1/4 c. shy but it didn't affect the recipe at all, it was still really sweet.

This recipe was easy to follow and make! It turned out very good, and the consistency was perfect. The spices were just right. If there were more spices it may have been a little much...but there was the perfect blend! Thank you!!!

Too bad I didn't this recipe out before Thanksgiving. I took it out 5 minutes before the recommended time but it was already burned. My oven temp is right on, so I'd suggest checking on it after about 40 minutes because it's probably done.

I am 14 years old and this pie was very easy for me to make for thanksgiving. I burnt it a bit but my family still enjoyed it and they wanted me to make two more pies tomorrow! The smell of the pie is AH-MAY-ZING and it taste Delicious. It goes perfectly with ice cream.

Wow! What a great recipe. I even impressed my mother in-law! She said she would always take me up on the offer for pie any time. Thanks for sharing! This is going into my hand written favorite recipe book. This really could be the BEST EVER...really!

Ok, after the sweetened condensed milk, no way this needed 2/3 c brown sugar plus 2 Tbsp sugar. Dollop of molasses, end of story.
