      Absolutely wonderful!! Made as directed and I must say that the orange zest lends such a lovely citrusy note. DH and I agree that this is better (imho) that pumpkin pie. Although you could apply the same method using pumpkin. The crunchy pecan topping is a nice foil for the silky smooth filling. Thank you Sharon for sharing.

      Excellent recipe! I didn't have orange rind, but I used ground cloves in the spice mix. For the pecan topping, I didn't have any dark corn syrup, so I doubled the brown sugar (I used dark) with a tbl. milk, and vanilla instead of maple flavoring (didn't have that either!). But it is SO GOOD and easy! Just added this to my cookbook, it's a keeper!! Thanks, Sharon for an excellent recipe!
