Good pie! The molasses adds a deeper colour and rich, bold taste. I baked my pie at 425F for 15 min and at 350F for another 50-55 min. The crust edges didn't get too dark. It's also not heavily sweet. I'd make this recipe again, so thanks for posting!

I lightened this recipe up by using 1 egg and 2 egg whites, brown sugar twin, skim milk, & made it crustless; still quite delicious, with a rich, earthy flavor. The molasses adds something to it that I've been missing in my other lite, crustless recipes, and adds all that nutrition. This is a keeper!

This is a super-delicious pie, at least it was with the cooked sugarloaf squash I subbed for the pumpkin. I was using 8" graham cracker pie crust, and found I needed 2 crusts, so this made 2 full 8" pies for me. I baked according to the recipe, but the bottom of my crust got SO burnt; it was completely black. That's never happened when I've cooked pumpkin pie in this type of crust, so I think next time I'll follow Trish's directions. Yet, even with a very burnt crust, this pie was still delicious--even w/o anything on top. Thanks!
