I have been using this recipe for years. Always comes out perfect. I adore all your recipes...when I want to make anything I look to see if you have a recipe. Plus I always use your suggestions on modifying the recipe. You have never let me down. Happy holidays!!!
Just came out of the oven - wow! Now, being that I'm no pastry chef, I will admit that I purchased two 9" shells... This recipe easily filled both, right to the rim! Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
This filling made a fabulous pie, even without any vanilla. We also used golden brown sugar instead of dark brown. This made a brown- sugar- in- pumpkin pie believer out of me! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe! We used the Basic Pie Crust I (117324) that worked wonderfully.
