This recipe is the best and so is the Festal Brand Canned Pumpkin. My brother and I have both moved to areas where we cannot get the festal brand. So when we come back for visits we both stock up on cans of the Festal pumpkin. I have used other brands but nothing compares. Thanks for posting the recipe cause in the move I lost my copy. Now I have it again. yeaaa.
This is my go-to pumpkin pie recipe, I make it almost every year generally using Libby Pumpkin because it is more available. This is a richer, lighter and sweeter pie than you get in most places. I usually cut back the sugar to 3/4 cup and I do one other thing, I always use evaporated milk and I use the entire 12 oz can of it. I make this in a 9 inch deep dish pie dish so using a shallow pie dish would not be large enough for the mixture. One other caveat, since this pie has 3 eggs for richness, how you blend the batter matters. Use a whisk hard and and you can incorporate a lot of air into the batter, this will make the pie very light indeed. So mix using the method that gives you your preferred texture. I cook it nearly an hour until the center of the pie starts to rise up, that is when it will be cooked thru. It is like a one dish meal.
I gave this recipe 3 stars. I made this recipe for my families Easter dinner. I found this recipe on a can of Tender Sweet pumpkin filling. Mystep-dad wasn't crazy over the taste. My hubby and I liked the taste but not the texture. The texture was like custard and I'm not a fan of custard. I was looking for a recipe that called for milk as I had some that needed to be used up. I did the milk method which I don't useually use, as I useually use evaportated milk method. I think I will stick to the evaporated milk method. Overall I'd try this recipe again but with evaporated milk. Thanks for posting a good recipe! Christine
I cook with pumpkin every week of the year. I tried Festal Brand Canned Pumpkin on two occasions and was not impressed. The consistency of the pumpkin altered the texture of both Pumpkin Bread and Pumpkin Pie. For lack of a better word, the Pumkin was slimy. I would NEVER recommend Festal Brand Canned Pumpkin.
This is absolutely THE best pumpkin pie recipe. My mom and I use this every year. Even if you have to use a different brand of pumpkin, use this recipe! Thanks for posting it Bec :-)
I was so glad to find this recipe here after being disappointed at only finding Libby's Pumpkin at Walmart yesterday. I figure, fine, I'll use a different brand, but I'm not making any recipe other than Festal - and in the future I'll hold out and buy the Festal instead because it really is the best. Thanks for posting this recipe! Gonna make 2 today.
This is "THE ABSOLUTE BEST" recipe for Pumpkin Pie. I have tried many other brands of Pumpkin and different recipes, but nothing compares to this Recipe with the Festal Pumpkin. I also like to support a local company and feel strongly that that support is needed these days with the way of the economy.
