Well, I made this one yesterday. We all love pumpkin and love apple butter, so I was anxious to try this one out. Basically, I'd say don't bother. It cooks up just fine, of course, but I was hoping for more apple-y flavor. All the apple butter added was the spices, which you could easily do with a normal pumpkin pie recipe. The ONLY thing worthwhile in this recipe was the crumble topping on the pie. Now, I use a topping like that on all my muffins, but never tried it on a pie. It is very good, and I'll do that part again. But for the base of the pie - nahhhhhhh. Too many ingredients for too little results! I was hoping for a more pronounced apple butter taste in there. So, if you hate your own pumpkin pie recipe, then try this one - otherwise, this will leave you with a partial can of pumpkin, an open can of evaporated milk, and a pie that you'll wonder why you bothered.... sorry!
