The pie just wasn't that interesting. Pretty bland with a strong clove flavor. Definitely would use only about 1/8 tsp of cloves if I were to make again but I think I will try another recipe next time. Read More

My two sons and I made this dessert together tonight. Because I'm low on white sugar we used half white and half brown sugars. We made no other changes. This pie took almost double what the instructions stated to bake! Our pie was REALLY full which I'm sure was part of it it was a very good tasting pumpkin pie. I think the spices could have been increased. A nice pumpkin pie--very easy. Just be aware that if you make this yourself this might take longer than you think to bake. EDITED: The filling for this pie is so light and fluffy. One of the best I've had. Read More

I used all brown sugar. I removed allspice as I don't care for that spice. I also cut ginger and cloves to 1/4 teaspoon each. I like the pumpkin flavor to shine. Cloves has sharpness to it. It can take away from the pumpkins delicate flavor. Read More

Finally I have it memorized! I am welcomed at thanksgiving's nationwide:D Delicious and not overly sweet although in certain circles I will use a bit less sugar and it still gets raved about. To make pumpkin puree from a sugar pumpkin halve it butter it and cook at 350 for an hour until its super soft. I find you can usually just mush it up instead of actually putting it in the blender.
