  1. Special is right! I thought I'd try this exactly as written even though the previous reviewer really didn't like the pepper. I'm glad I made a full batch because I'm going to use it in all my sweet pumpkin recipes from now on! I used it in my Recipe #338030 and they turned out far more delicious than they ever have with store bought pumpkin pie seasoning. Thanks!!
  2. I would not have believed it possible until I tried this seasoning! It is, without a doubt, one of the best pumpkin pie spices I have ever used! Thank you, thank you, Mary, for posting this gem. Needless to say, I used it to make the Hillvilla Pumpkin Pie. This will stay in my cupboard instead of the bought pie spice. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
  3. Wonderful! I am not a huge fan of pepper, but I loved the bite it gave this mix. Used in recipe #217414 which was delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  4. This is a great pumpkin pie seasoning, very different, but delicious! I used it in Crustless Pumpkin Pie Recipe #4683811. I crave this now! Thank you for posting.
  5. My grandmother used to make the worlds best pumpkin pie. Even watching her when she was in her ripe old age of 92 I could never EVER duplicate the spices. I was always asked to get something she needed ..lol This recipe is DEAD ON. THANK YOU SO TERRIBLY MUCH.
