  1. If you want to use this recipe with a 9" deep dish like I prefer for pumpkin pie, cook at 425 for 15 minutes before cooking for 45 at 350. Toss in a bit of flour, too. If you don't, as I learned to my dismay, the center will never set right.<br/><br/>Otherwise, this pie is stupid delicious. I added a bit of extra ground cardamom for an extra chai kick.
  2. I completely agree that this is a tastier lighter version of most pumpkin pies. I only steeped two tea bags (not sure why the recipe calls for 3). Also not sure why it calls for 1/2 cup water when only 1/4 cup is used for the tea. Anyways, loved this recipe so much, I will never makes mom's again!
  3. The chai pumpkin pie a great spin on a classic desert recipe. The blend of traditional ingredients and creative additions left all my guests craving more.
  4. different in an awesome way!
  5. I was present at a party where this pie was served. Everyone wanted second helpings. It was outrageous - very light with delicate taste , not heavy like other pumpkin pies I've tasted. I strongly recommend this be a must on your Thanksgiving Day table. Emily
