    This is the only recipe I use for holiday pumpkin pie. I’ve made it 3 times and it’s delicious every time! I’ve found baking for 60 minutes instead of 50 works best in my oven.

    This was my first time making a pie from scratch the crust was wonderful I loved this method. I opted to make my own pumpkin purée by roasting 2 pie pumpkins in the oven until the skin start peeling from the flesh then I put the flesh into a food processor for 3 minutes. The only change I made was that I used 3/4 cup brown sugar and only 1/4 cup white in the filling.

    I made the pie today and because I was strapped for time, I unfortunately took the extra-short, shortcut and used a pre-made pie crust. After I put the pie in the oven to bake, I was impressed with the clean-up. Not only was I thrilled with the few basic ingredients the recipe called for, but I only needed one mixing bowl. That cut the cleaning time DOWN! I usually end up creating a mound of dishes in the sink, but not today; Clean up was a snap. My only struggle was 'when to know if the pie is cooked and when to take out🤷‍♀️'. I watched a couple YouTube videos, read a couple articles about various methods I can use to know if the center is cooked. I picked the easiest method using a knife. I'm happy I did my research because my knife was covered in pumkin filling so it needed to be cooked longer. I took the pie out of the oven when the knife came out clean, and had a scrumptious piece of pumpkin pie on a graphm cracker crust. It was delicious, full of flavor and was pretty and presentBld. It didn't Crack or cave in.

    Hands down the best pumpkin pie recipe I’ve tried so far, and yes I used the pepper. It’s creamy and delicious and was a big hit even amongst my pickiest eaters. I think this is going to be my go-to pumpkin pie recipe from now on.

    This pie is amazing! You will never be satisfied with store bought again. No adjustments needed, yes add the pepper! I am a crust person, and this has become the only recipe I use. Filling Recipe makes 6 mini pies and crust recipe makes 4 mini pies, so plan accordingly. Bake time is the same. Pies freeze very well. Yumm!

    Made one for thanksgiving and it was great. Smooth and great flavor. I thought about leaving the pepper out because I have never used it before in pumpkin pie and glad I didn’t. Will be my go to recipe!!!

    I made this pie a couple of weekends back for my church’s Sunday Picnic and the pie turned out to be a hit. Everyone loved it. Best homemade pumpkin pie they have ever had. I would totally make this recipe again.

    This was the first time I’ve made a pie crust from scratch and it turned out perfect, nice and golden brown with a flaky crust. My husband takes pie crust very seriously and he loved it. I do need to work on my edges but it tastes good.

    Turned out very well. Omitted black pepper to accommodate guests preferences. Filling consistency was creamy, light & smooth without being sugary sweet. This is now my "go-to" recipe

    So when making this recipe I realized partway through that I was out of milk. I tried to improvise with a little butter... and it still tasted great! Definitely excited to try this with the actual ingredients next time.

    I don't usually like pumpkin pie, but I had a pie pumpkin I needed to use. It was delicious.
