Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"Wonderful spin on a tradition," says Christine Miller. "This was a huge hit for my family. You definitely need to let this one set for a long time to get it to firm up, but it's well worth the wait."

"The secret to this awesome pie is to combine the pudding and cold milk first," according to lindalee. "The pudding will be thick. Then add the pumpkin and spices. If you serve the topping on the side, this looks like (and cuts like) a normal pumpkin pie and tastes like one too!

"If I could give this a million stars I would," raves TeamUmar. "I cannot tell you how much I loved this pie. I made it exactly as written but used a graham cracker crust."
