    This is a great pumpkin pie recipe that has been in my family for years. You may substitute evaporated milk for the cream, if you prefer.

    I've never reviewed anything on this site but I have never been as impressed!! Even though the filling didn't firm up as much as I generally like the flavour of this pie was phenominal! Add a little fresh whipped cream and you may want to skip dinner!  -  08 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this pie for our Thanksgiving dinner tonight and it was delicious! The only thing was the pie didn't quite set in the cooking time per the recipe - I left it in an additional 10 minutes and I think it could have used another 10. But, the flavour was wonderful and the praline crust added something special. I'll definitely use this recipe again.  -  13 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was terrific. The pecan layer in the pastry is a nice touch. I had no mace, and it didn't seem to lack anything  -  28 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
