The topping on this pie is fantastic. The pumpkin filling NEEDS pumpkin pie spice. I made it according to the recipe without any changes and the pumpkin filling was SO BLAND it was awful. A couple of teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice would make this one terrific pumpkin pie! Read More

I liked the pecans in the crust of this pie and will add them to future pumpkin pie crusts but I didn't think the struessel topping was worth the trouble. My family wasn't crazy about this pie either. I'll go back to the traditional pumpkin pie. Read More

This is a different kind of pumpkin pie but definitely delicious I couldn't stay out of it! I used a store bought crust so I just sprinkled the pecans on top of the crust before filling with the pumpkin. It was almost too much streusel topping but since the filling isn't sweet it works. Read More

I overmixed the streusel mixture for the topping. Be careful or it will turn very clumpy. I probably should try this one again. Read More

This pie has great potential. The streusel topping was tasty but the filling needed to be sweeter to actually taste like pie. Perhaps adding some white sugar to the filling along with some pumpkin pie spice. I'm willing to try this recipe again.... Read More

Very nice lighter than a traditional pumpkin pie. However I did add a good deal of pumpkin pie spice to the filling as it would have been very bland without it. Read More

Loved the crumb topping on this pie. Would have given it 5 stars had it not been for the fact that I felt like the middle never really got to the consistency that I was expecting. I wished it had just been a bit more firm. But the flavor was great and this was an easy recipe to convert to gluten free. Read More
