Made this pie (finally, it's been in my recipe box for over a year!) for Christmas dinner and party at a good friends house today I really like the flavor. I do like traditional pumpkin pie but this is just a little step above. I'll make this one again but will still like the Libby's recipe for a real basic pie! I did double the spice per one reviewer. I doubled the recipe for two big deep dish pies, so when I doubled the spices, I used "rounded" measuring spoons. That worked fine. I also doubled the topping and used it all but about 1/4 cup. There again, when I doubled the topping, it should have been 4TBS of flour but used 8TBS per another review. Cut very cold butter into the flour/spices. I used pecans rather than walnuts just because I like them better! I did not add the nuts to the topping mixture but sprinkled them on top of the topping mixture after it was divided between the two pies. I had chopped 2 cups of pecans but stopped after putting about 1/2 cup on each pie. Just looked like it was more than enough. Again, great recipe!
