Why wait for fall when you can satisfy your pumpkin cravings right now? DH is out of town for the week so when he is gone I like to make something special just for myself. This was just what I was looking for! I do love the taste of pumpkin and this recipe is wonderful! Thank you, NurseDi!! It is delicious!

Very delicious and perfect party food. Had a nice flaky crust and tasted just like pumpkin pie. I think I will make this for Thanksgiving because it serves more people than a regular pie. Thanks Nurse Di.

This was the perfect Thanksgiving dessert. My family and I thought it was wonderful. Tastes just like spicy pumpkin pie but so much easier to make. Thank you Nurse Di!!

I made this for Thanksgiving, as a square substitute for the traditional round pie. Great taste and flavor! I personally enjoyed it more after it was chilled and more firm; I found the topping was still wet and runny, even after a few hours out of the oven at room temp. But the flavor, whether it is chilled or not chilled, is better than plain old pumpkin pie. Thanks, NurseDi!

We had lots of folks over for Thanksgiving. I made this instead of pumpkin pie because it makes a large amount. Tasted just like a great spicy pumpkin pie too. The entire Wilson family thanks you.

This is excellent! I took it to a party and everyone love it. We like it better than regular pumpkin pie even. I made it with half the filling as Pam-I-Am suggested, and liked the thickness. I made this a second time (hubby's request vs regular pumpkin pie!) and increased the topping slightly, also adding a little flour (maybe 1T) to the topping mix which kept it from being runny.

These are delicious, but the cooking time is way off. I followed the instructions to the letter, and no way was it close to being ready after baking for 45 minutes, adding the topping, and baking another 20 minutes. It took an additional 20+ minutes before the center wasn't jiggling anymore.

I think 2 cans of evaporated milk is a bit much. It took way longer than the give time to bake this so that the center was not gooey. I added at least 40 min to the bake time. I may try using a can of sweetened condensed milk instead of the evaporated milk, to get my pumpkin pie filling, the next time I make these. Crust and toping are delicious as is.

I made this in place of a traditional pumpkin pie this thanksgiving. It was a big hit! I like that it is easier than making crust for a pie. Also, I only used half of the filling amount and it was perfect for us. Also, I used fresh pumpkin instead of canned. Definitely will make again!
