5 STARS only with the following fixes: 2 cups pumpkin is close enough to one 15 oz. can -- use one can and save yourself the measuring. Use 3 TABLESPOONS of spices -- I highly recommend Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus. Add a generous pinch of salt, a half tsp pure vanilla extract and a tsp of fresh orange zest. Make two 8 inch pies instead of one 9 inch. Use graham cracker crusts. Prebake crusts for 5-10 minutes. Expect pie, not cheesecake. There is room on top of the baked pies to add a layer of brandied, Gran Marnier infused, or spiced whipped cream just before serving. This recipe is easy to prepare. Read More

That is the worst pumpkin pie I ever made. Pumpkin Pie is supposed to have spice. It tastes like bland mush. Read More

I thought this pie was wonderful. Definitely needs a deep-dish pan. Used a shortbread crust and added 2 Tb brown sugar and 1 tsp vanilla to the filling so it would not taste "bland." Tasted good and creamy like cheesecake. I will be making this one for Thanksgiving! Read More

This recipe was very easy to make and I did not have any problems with it turning out. It came out of the oven perfectly done and set just right. It was made the day before Thanksgiving and put out on the cold porch to keep. When I served it up it was denser than pumpkin pie yet not as firm as cheesecake. And the flavor was very very good. Everyone who had a slice said it was delicious and I will definitely make this my new pumpkin pie recipe. Read More

Very good. This is milder and creamier than pumpkin pie and nothing like cheesecake so don't expect cheesecake or pumpkin pie this pie stands on its own! I will use double the seasonings next time but all in all a very tasty pie. I put mine in a deep dish grahm crust and I much prefer it served chilled not warm as the recipe states. Read More

This is good! Not quite pumpkin pie not quite cheesecake. The flavor of pumpkin pie mixed with creamy goodness. I used a premade pie crust and some real pumpkin I had prepared about a week and a half ago and needed to get rid of. I also used generous amounts of apple pie spice (cinnamon nutmeg mace cloves) and some ginger. Read More

This recipe leans more towards "pie" instead of "cheesecake". I know the recipe says "pie" but I guess I expected to taste the cream cheese more. It is still a very good pumpkin pie recipe. I baked it in a ten inch springform pan with a graham cracker crust. It was moist and tasty! Read More
