I found this recipe very fast and easy to make.It was a big hit at Thanksgiving and I would consider making it again.My only problem was that it took me a little longer to cook than the recipe said,but this could be due to having a different oven.It was easy to fix,i just kept it in a little longer.For a little extra flavor,I also added a little pinch of ground clove.

We found this much better than the standard pumpkin pie recipe that I make from the Libby's label. This will become my standard pie recipe. Like Veruca Salt, my pie took longer to get done. I made two 9" deep dish pies and it took 65 min. at the reduced temperature to get done.
