    Chef #1800342798's Note:

    This is the BEST Pumpkin Pie I have ever had, people who don't like pumpkin pie have said this is great! The making of the pie can be a little persnikety, but the results are well worth it. This pie is a great culinary challenge that is sure to impress guests over the holiday season. From the 2009 Fall edition of Taste Magazine.
