This was good, just not a favorite among the pumpkin lovers in my family. We felt that the pumpkin taste was barely there--- it could have used more spices and a richer flavor for our tastes. I did follow other's suggestions and use a graham cracker crust, which went well with the lightness of this pie.

I typically make the custard style pumpkin pie and was very pleased at the ease and taste of this recipe. In place of the baked pastry shell, I did use Graham-Cracker Crust (Microwave) and for the spices an equal amount of Baking Spice Blend Mix. The brown sugar was reduced to 1/3 cup and 1/3 cup of white sugar was used in the egg whites. I did add 1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tarter to the egg whites while whipping. The pie was made in an 8x8 inch pan and made 9 servings. I will keep this on hand to use again.

Wonderful pie, and so easy! I loved the flavor of the spices. I made a graham cracker crust using maple syrup, and the combination with the pumpkin and spices both tasted and smelled heavenly.
