This pumpkin pie is to die for. The best pumpkin pie I have ever made. I did not use fresh pumpkin...I substituted libby's canned. I used 2% milk... and made the pie exactly as instructed other than the above. I love the use of ginger in the pie- many pumpkin pies call for clove and this did not which I believe is the secret to an amazing pumpkin pie.

I can't believe I forgot to rate this recipe!!! I made this pie for my Christmas dinner, it was a hit!! I used milk, which worked well with less calories than cream. I used 1 tbsp of a pre mixed pumpkin pie spice, in place of the other spices. The flavor was perfect!! It took a little longer in my oven (about 1 hr 20 mins total). I love that I used all natural and organic ingredients, and everyone loved it. There were no complaints that it was too "healthy" tasting. I will be using this recipe from now on. Thanks :D

This was okay. I really loved the consistency, but as far as the taste, I think I like my pie a bit sweeter, so I would probably add a bit more sugar. I also didn't care much for the ginger taste, so I think next time I would just use the normal clove instead. I will probably make this again though using those changes.

This yielded a smooth, delicious, pumpkin-tasting pie, just what I was looking for! I hate to see the pumpkin masked behind spices and sugar so this really fit the bill and I'm pretty sure it's healthier this way, too! Served it with whipped cream. I'll be coming back to this recipe for sure!

This was quite good. I chose to add apple slices as the author wrote at the end of the recipe. I peeled and thinly sliced an apple and put it on the bottom of the crust; the apples rose up during cooking, making a pretty pie (see picture). It was tasty, too. The only thing I did differently was to omit the ginger because I didn't see where to add it in the recipe. Once I realized I had forgotten to use it, I had already poured the pie into the pie plate. This pie was delicious.

I didn't use ginger but this recipie served me very well on my first attempt at ever making a fresh pumpkin pie. It turned out wonderfully!

This pumpkin pie is wonderful and very easy to make. It bakes up beautifully...no cracking or sinking in the middle! And even though I was not able to get the nice small pie pumpkins the flavor was still great. My 5 year old DS helped me make the pie and said he wanted it to be our tradition every year. So we will definitely be making this recipe again. We topped off our pie slices with cinnamon, orange whipped cream. Thanks for sharing your recipe and added a crowning touch to the finish of our Thanksgiving meal.

I haven't actually eaten the pie yet (it's in the oven), but the pie filling so far smells, tastes, and looks wonderful. I can't wait until my pie is done! My pie is done and it is wonderful. My 1 year old LOVES it. Best pumpkin pie I've ever had.
