I am giving this a four because it is easy enough to make (given the palaver with fresh pumpkin!) and does what it is supposed to do. However, I have never had any pumpkin pie before and I have come to the conclusion I don't like it. I tried it hot and cold and it is just a bit too spicy for me. I prefer my sweet pies very sweet and this just isn't. I am glad I tried it though and I am glad I chose this recipe. IT just wasn't what I expected.
Great pie! I used green skinned Japanese pumpkin. To be honest, this isn't too far off in taste from an American style pumpkin pie. We loved the addition of fruit. I used sultanas, which really complimented the flavour of the spices and added an interesting texture. Yum! Thanks French Tart!
