This was the best pie I have ever had, let alone made! I made it for Thanksgiving yesterday and everyone was fighting over who got to take some home. I followed the directions exactly and used the homemade pie crust as well. This will definitely be on my table at Thanksgiving every year from now on.

This was a great recipe, and thoroughly enjoyed by my family and guest. My dad gave me the best compliement yet..."Your culinary skills have improved tremendously" and this is so not my doing but it is because this recipe is just that wonderful!! I didn't follow the recipe totally, i didn't use the pie crust recipe (cos I was short on time), and I used another recipe, but other than that I didn't change anything. The instructions are extremely detailed, and so easy to follow. DELISH!
