We enjoyed this pumpkin pie very much. I especially like the decorative lace pattern which looked similar to a spider web or a flower on one of the pies. We also made this pie with a rice flour crust so it was very healthy. The honey made the pie not too sweet. This pie is a good option for those on a sugar free diet. Thank you for submitting the recipe.
