This is the best pumpkin pie I have ever had. All you have to do is try it once and you're sure to be hooked, just like my family is. I found this recipe a few years ago, and we have enjoyed it ever since! Serve with whipped topping.

I really liked this recipe however I think there may have been a couple mistakes. Two tablespoons of cinnamon seemed way too much and the recipe said two pie crusts. The ingredients only made one pie although the crust was really full. I made two pies. In one I put one and a quarter tablespoons of cinnamon and the other I put a little more than half a tablespoon. I think both pies still had too much cinnamon. I did like the flavor of the brandy coming through. I will use this recipe again but I will definitely use less cinnamon. Read More

2 TABLESPOONS of Cinnamon RUINS this recipe. Try one TEASPOON maybe 2 teaspoons. The author should change the recipe because it definitely has a typo. It was so strong that I had to start over. Read More

I followed the amounts of spice for a regular pumpkin pie recipe namely for one pie you should use: 1 teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon 1/2 tsp of Ground All spice 1/4 tsp of ground cloves 1/8 tsp of ground nutmeg And each of these you can add more or less of depending on your preferences. For this recipe I also used: 1 Cup of brown sugar 2/3 Cup of milk (minus a table spoon or two of milk). Since I did not have Brandy I used some raspberry Chambord Liquor I had in the house and this recipe came out so wonderfully delicious. I do not think I will ever make pumpkin pie without a little bit of spirits ever again! It added a little bit of extra smooth flavor to the pie heavenly! Read More

However only use 1 tsp of cinnamon! I also added 1 tbs of flour to the mix which seems to help the center set better. The brandy adds a really smooth taste to the pie. I would imagine you can experiment with other types of liquor as well. Read More

We were doing a pumpkin pie bake off and I wanted to try this. I halved the recipe since I only wanted one pie. Halfway thru, I realized it would not be enough for one pie, so I started doubling the recipe and realized something was really wrong with the cinnamon and spices so I did not double that, but even with one tablespoon cinnamon, it was still way too much. Looks like others bakers are saying the same thing. Do not make this recipe. Read More
