My first time making a pumpkin pie - success! I cooked and pureed my pumpkin (Australia doesn't have tinned pumpkin) and used the Delicate Shortcrust Pastry recipe for my base, which I blind baked. Nice flavour without being overpowering, delicious served with a dollop of plain whipped cream. Looking forward to trying a piece (or two) tomorrow.
Ok so I must preface this by saying that I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin pie. Generally, if chocolate's not involved, I'm not a fan of dessert period. Having said that, I made this for Thanksgiving, and family and friends - some of whom are also not huge fans of pumpkin pie - raved. One even called it the best she had ever eaten!! So, I was mandated to make this for Christmas as well!! Everyone who ate this actually liked the level of spice, as did I. Made it interesting, different. Not too strong. Add a lil fresh whipped cream, and voila! Perfection!!
It really is the best pumpkin pie ever. The spice blend is perfect. Its not overpowering but isn't bland. It's super easy to put together. I first time cook could easily do it. Once you make this you'll never use another recipe!
Truly the best pumpkin pie I've ever had! Nice and creamy and not overly sweet. It was a huge hit at our Thanksgiving dinner.
Love this, as others have said, the spice is perfect. I used a can of pumpkin puree and a can of sweetened condensed milked. I didn't measure, I figured it would be close enough. The pie turned out to be fabulous. We had one piece before the dinner and one piece after!
Great recipe! Of course I doubled it 'cause there's a lotsa punkin-eaters in our clan. Used fat-free sweetened condensed milk and 1/3 less sugar: it was still PLENTY sweet. Thanks for sharing!
This was one of the best pumpkin pies I have ever had! It's a simple recipe and easy to follow. Watch out if you use convection bake ovens...when I cooked this pie it only took 30-45 minutes to bake that's obviously significantly shorter than it says. I also added 1/2 teaspoon for all spices just to...spice it up! Other than that it's totally delicious!
A very good pie, but a little too sweet and rich for my taste. I like a lighter pumpkin pie, but everyone else seemed to enjoy it! I covered the crust edge with aluminum foil the first 30 minutes or so of baking so the crust didn't get too brown.
This has now replaced our usual family pie at the Holidays. It has received rave reviews from everyone. Thank you for posting this recipe.
10 Stars! very creamy, delicious and easy . I didn't use the extra 2 Tablespoons of sugar. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
