First off, I HATE pumpkin pie, I hate it so much you'd think I was allergic. I can not recall any holiday where I've subjected myself to consuming this gooey orange colored mass of spices. However, my family LOVES pumpkin pie, and since I play chef every Thanksgiving...I thought I'd give this recipe a trial run before the eating extravaganza comes around this year. I had to taste test of course...what a tasty crunchy explosion of fall flavor! Not only was it simple to put together, but it was terribly yummy. I'm looking forward to unveiling this pumpkin-pie treasure this coming holiday season... I may even pair it with some Jeni's "Maker's Mark/Buttered Pecan" icecream to make for a decadant pie ala mode.
My sister and I weren't too crazy about this pie. The crust came out sort of soggy, and the pumpkin filling was almost a custard/pudding consistency - which I wasn't expecting. The topping was good, but I didn't like the taste of the pumpkin filling. I wouldn't make it again.
I'm the submitter of this recipe and would like to add a change... I suggest you change the first 1/2 of the cook time to 30 minutes and keep the 2nd 1/2 at 20 minutes to be sure the pumpkin is cooked throughly. Thanks!
Finally a pumpkin pie without condensed milk and artifical ingredients! This pie makes you wonder why anyone would ever choose a different recipe. My only caution would be to watch the pecans closely as they can burn before you know it. Also, after making this recipe several times know, I find that my oven needs another 20 minutes or so. If you know your oven takes longed I would wait to add the pecans for 30 minutes. Also good with a walnut and pecan mix on top.
Not only was this pie easy to make, but came out of the oven looking beautiful and tasting fabulous. I made this for Thanksgiving this year, and everyone loved it. The crunchy pecan topping on the pumpkin was just delicious! A nice change from plain pumpkin pie. The only thing I did was adjust the spices--I doubled them, and also added about half a teaspoon of cinnamon to the topping. I'm going to make this pie again very soon, since there weren't any leftovers for me to bring home.
I made this pie for my husband, who is a very picky eater, and he loved it! It was really simple to make, but it tastes like something that would take a very long time. I definitely recommend it to everyone!
DELICIOUS!!! What a great variation from the traditional pumpkin pie. The perfect blend of two great holiday pie flavors. Thanks for sharing.
Very easy to make..gotta admit, i am really not a big pumkin pie fan, but everyone else seems to be, so this looked like a pretty good recipe to try. YUMMMYYYY! Definately will make this again....I did have to cook mine about 10 more minutes than the recipe called for though...could be because I made mine in a stone pie plate.
