This was so easy and wonderful! I just split a pumpkin, took out the seeds and microwaved it until soft. When I pureed the pumpkin in my cuisinart, I added a bit of 1/2 and 1/2 to make it a little creamy. I also used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of whipping cream. Also followed the previous reviewers ideas on spices. My family INHALED it and we are not desset eaters. THANK YOU!
This pie was the BEST pumpkin pie I have ever had or made! I love that there is honey instead of sugar, my family LOVED this pie!. I did however, double the cinnamon and ginger, cut the salt in half and used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream and milk. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
