Delicious! This is an easy tip and makes a big difference in taste - in a medium pan over low heat, heat up the canned pumpkin puree, spices, and salt. Heating the pumpkin puree up takes out the "canned" taste of the pumpkin and melds the spices together nicely. Then, pour the mixture out into another bowl, and let it cool a bit before adding the condensed milk and eggs. This little change makes the pumpkin taste much fresher! My family loves this recipe, and I use a ready-made graham cracker crust, so easy and so good!

Not impressed. I followed the recipe to the letter. A thick skin developed on top of the pie that ballooned in the oven. The end result looked like a shar pei. The pumpkin itself was mild in taste and over baked.

This is the best pumpkin pie recipe! I get rave reviews on it every year. I always use a ready-made graham cracker crust, and it comes out great. One suggestion is to let the pie cool on the oven rack, because it cools more slowly that way. If you take it out onto the kitchen counter, the filling sometimes cracks because of the cold air.

Outstanding Flavor and very easy to make. Two combinations I love. A very sweet pie, nice appearance, and make sure to top it off with whipped cream. This recipe is by far a 5 star!! Tips: I did not use the ginger nor the nutmeg; instead I added 2 teaspoons of "McCormik's Pumpkin Pie Spice" (which includes: Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, and Allspice), along with the 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. My wife loved it but she thought it needed more cinnamon. So I made the next one with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and she loved it. If you like a lot of cinnamon, that's the way to go. For me, I preferred 1 teaspoon, but I'd eat it either way. Thanks EAGLE BRAND®

I have never made pumpkin pie Australians don't eat pumpkin pie. But I am now a guys in the U.S of A are sooo clever. I want to make and eat pumpkin pie breakfast ...lunch...and dinner !!! I can't believe we don't make this over here...I am going to make it for Christmas Day again for all our visitors...if i can keep my husband and myself away from the pies for just long enough to let the visitors have a slice or 2 each. WAY BEYOND YUMMY ...HEAVENLY and DIVINE are words that come to mind. I wonder if i should go down the street and buy another butternut pumpkin and make one more before Christmas Day...they say practise makes perfect lol. We don't have tinned pumpkin or pumpkin spice over here so I have to do everything myself...but maybe that makes it even nicer.

This is a very tasty, traditional pumpkin pie. I used fresh pumpkin puree instead of canned pumpkin, which I would recommend because it is fresher and gives more texture. Also, if you are using a homemade pie crust, I recommend you bake it a tad before adding the filling. Otherwise, the crust will get mushy. I cooked my pie for almost an hour (cooking time varies)and then, cooked for 15 minutes on the very bottom rack to finish the cooking of my crust while also lightly browing the top of the pie. You end up with a perfectly spiced product, perfect with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner (or anytime you crave it!).

The easiest and best pumpkin pie I've ever made. I followed a suggestion that someone else had made and used 2tsp of pumpkin pie spice and 2tsp of ground cinnamon instead. The bottom of my crust was still a tad underdone so I would suggest pre-baking the crust for a bit.

Very good pie. I always have soggy crust so I Bake the crust a tad before putting the filling in, I also let the pie cool in the oven. I also like it a bit spicier so a little extra spice makes it extra well for me (I like ground cloves in mine as well). I make extra filling and overfill deeper pans and bake the extra filling in oven with the pies for that special taste for the cook. Maple syrup also adds real nice flavor. How I make it depends on my mood. Often I make several and make one spicy and one not for different taste to please all.
