Absolutely delicious. I have made a few pumpkin pies (not common here in NZ) for my family since moving here but never one with cream cheese or one that had a nut topping. Ive never seen canned pumpkin here either so I just steamed up an amount of fresh pumpkin that looked like it would mash to the amount required and other than that I followed the recipe to a T. Simple to make and great spiced flavour. Thank you for sharing.
I brought this pie to my Thanksgiving gathering and what a hit!!
Oh, what a wonderful pie this is! DH is a HUGE pumpkin pie fan, but not a big lover of cream cheese. I shooed him out of the kitchen til these were done. He's just now tasted it and he's blown away - declared that THIS was our new Thanksgiving/Christmas pumpkin pie! Thanks so much for this recipe.
Really good! Made just as directed, but left off the topping. I was in a hurry, and didn't chill the cream cheese base before adding the pumpkin, which was definitely a mistake, as the pumpkin and cream cheese mixed a bit. It was very good, but my DD suggested that it would have been better with a graham cracker crust, and I think that is a very good idea. I'll probably be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe!
Super good. Well received by all.
I also used the graham cracker crust, simply because I hate regular pie crust on any pie. It turned out great and my hubby loved it, and he normally doesn't like pie. I took this to Thanksgiving dinner @ my in-laws today and everyone who ate it, raved about it (my MIL especially). I would definitely make this again!
this was really good~i would definately recommend it! thanks!
This was a hit at Thanksgiving dinner tonight! I used two store-bough graham crusts, but they were clearly going to be too small to hold all the filling, so I made two--I split the cream cheese layer between two crusts and doubled the pumpkin filling (using one large can of pumpkin and one can of evaporated milk) and pecan topping (which was almost too much). It fit perfectly. Thanks!
This pie was the first dessert to be finished! I wanted to make something familiar but different. My family kept raving that it was so good, they just wished I had made more than one pie! I was in such a rush that I even messed up on the topping. I sprinkled it on the pie right before, rather than the last 10-15 minutes. This will definitely show up at next year's Thanksgiving and Christmas! Thanks for such an awesome recipe!
I'll definitely bake this one again. The flavors were wonderful together and my family enjoyed it. It's well worth any extra time you spend in making this pie. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
