"I like pumpkin pie, but have always found it a tad boring in its usual form. The cinnamon graham cracker crust and brown sugar whipped cream breathe new life into traditional pumpkin pie and make it, well, poetic!"

This is a wonderful way to improve pumpkin pie. I thought it took longer than 2 hours to make. The pie has to cool before you can do the whipped cream layer, so give yourself time for that. The pumpkin layer had caramely undertones from the sweetened condensed milk. It was lovely.
My son loves pumpkin pie...I never really cared for it. This recipe is amazing! It quickly is becoming one of my favorites.
How do I love thee, Poetic Pumpkin Pie? Let me count the pieces we ate. This is a break from my traditional pumpkin pie recipe, and we loved the graham crust and the silky smooth filling. I followed the recipe to the letter, with one small deviation. We couldn't wait for it to cool, so I topped each piece with the whipped cream instead of spreading it over the entire pie. It was nicely set even while still warm. Beautiful texture. We are looking forward to another taste tomorrow. Great recipe!
This pie was really good! Kind of a refreshing update to the original pumpkin pie recipe. I took it to my boyfriends family's thanksgiving at it was a hit! Only for me it took about ten minutes longer to cook completely through then stated in the recipe. I also had to cover it with foil so the crust wouldn't burn on the edges. I highly recommend this recipe!
Like the first reviewer, I'm not a huge pumpkin pie fan but my kids loooove it. Making this recipe changed that! I love the variation from traditional pie crust, and the brown sugar whipped cream is just the right topping. Everyone loves whipped cream in every bite! Can't wait for more recipes from The Gift of Grub!
Sooooo much better than plain old pumpkin pie!
Everyone loved this recipe for Thanksgiving. I followed the recipe as is.. baked for 40 minutes and could have took it out a minute or two earlier. Thanks for sharing. Definitley making again.
This was good, but my husband said he prefers the regular type of crust instead of the graham cracker crust.
