I made this recipe last night (in preparation for Thanksgiving), and with that extra pie I've made everyone in my house eat some for breakfast. All I have gotten were wows, and it is just as good as Marie Callender's pie. I used a box mix for the crust (they were out of every kind of premade crust at the store, and I am not good enough with them to make my own from scratch) that was Betty Crocker, and it was good. And because there are no pumpkins for sale in late November, I bought a can of unseasoned pumpkin and heated it a bit on the stove before mixing it in, 'cause I read somewhere that that would get rid of the "canned" taste. I also used about 3/4 teaspoon of pumkin pie seasoning with an additional 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. I might add more cinnamon next time. And I used vanilla bean Haagen Daaz ice cream, which added some lovely vanilla specks throughout the pie. But overall, it was super easy and it turned out amazing, and I've never made pies before. The only annoying thing was that it took me over 30 minutes to prep it, but the pie was so good that I'm willing to overlook that. I think I'll be repeating this constantly.
