This recipe intrigued me. So-o-o I put it together last night. I used Gala apples, since that was what I had on hand. We did find the pie different and enjoyed it, but think Granny Smith apples would have made a big difference and that is what I will use next time. I also think I will make more of the pumpkin mix for the next pie. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!
This was something different, I have to say. The firmness of the apples contrasted nicely with the smoothness of the pumpkin. I was confused as to why the ingredients specify pastry for a double-crust pie when apparently you only use one of the crusts and could easily simply buy a pie crust in the pan.
This is a verbatim ripoff of a recipe published by Taste of Home magazine. It is disappointing. The result is a pie that is neither a good apple pie nor a good pumpkin pie, but a mediocre blend of the two that you wish were just one or the other. Do not waste your time. It's a fair amount of work for something middling -- in the same amount of time you can bake a fabulous pumpkin pie AND a fabulous apple pie.
