Easy, tasty. Crust better than traditional pie. No soggy crust IF there are leftovers. Size of 2 deep dish pies. 6 out of 6 votes for better than our tried and true pumpkin pie recipe

Delicious...I'm finding a lot of pumpkin recipes here on 'zaar that I've enjoyed already and this is one of the easiest ways to prepare dessert for a crowd for Thanksgiving or Christmas or what ever holiday you celebrate. It is easier to make a couple of these to feed the multitudes at a large family function than to fuss making 4-6 pies.

I have made this dessert a number of times and always get rave reviews. Most people like it better than pumpkin pie. I love that it serves a big crowd. Thanks for sharing!
