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.
I'm going to give this 4 stars only because of the confusion about the crust. Really good flavor, you can't go wrong with this combo. I did add vanilla and ginger to the pumpkin mixture.
