This pie was great. It was very simple I had everything I needed on hand. I did use 2 tsps. of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon. It was really one of the best pies I've made. Read More

I run a Prechool and Kindergarten program and for a fundraising project we choose to make pumpkin pies. We chose this recipe because the ingredients were simple and most items we arleady had at the center. We sold 50 pies and had rave reviews from our families who bought the pies! Many people even asked for the recipe! The only change we made was to add pumpkin pie spice to the recipe! Yummy! Read More

This was very good; however I don't think it deserves the name "the world's best". Will probably make it again and like the fact it calls for regular milk. Still like the old "Libby's pumpkin pie" recipe best! Read More

I've NEVER baked a pumpkin pie before! This came out BEAUTIFULLY!!! I used a Marie Callender frozen pie crust... it was perfect. I did cut down on the milk per other reviewer's suggestion's to 3/4 and even used some half and half that I wanted to use up in my fridge. This is an AMAZING pumpkin pie. If you want to cut the sugar you can but my hubby likes it just the way it is. This pie will impress!! Read More

I agree with the past reviewers. Too much filling for 1 pie but not enough for 2. Also the older folks found it too sweet but the younger people thought it was fine. No need to add more sweetness with whipped cream topping. FYI works with homemade pumpkin puree just need to cook a little longer. Read More

It needed more spice! I'm lactose intolerant so I liked that I could substitute lactose free milk and enjoy it instead of being sick or skipping over it. To ensure it 'set' (I used homemade pumpkin puree) I added a heaping tablespoon of cornstarch to the eggs before I added them in. I made a mousse and didn't use a pie crust. I also used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Read More
