Pumpkin pie has always been my favorite. I never thought it could get any better than that. Well, folks, it can! Enter the pumpkin pie with the smoothest texture and best, most complex flavor of any pumpkin pie I've ever tasted. I will never go back! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this pie every fall. My family and I love it. I've been a pumpkin pie fanatic since i was a very young child and now I'm in my early twenties and look forward to baking this recipe every year. This year my 5 year old son will be accompanying me like the many years I baked with my grand-mom. This is a great twist on a traditional family favorite. Thank you so much Paula for this wonderful recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This pie was amazing using apple butter. I made this pie according to the recipe, but I made a few changes.....I mixed 1 ~ 8 ounce pkg cream cheese with 1/4 c sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla and a few egg yolks together. I used a deep dish pie plate and placed the crust in the pie plate. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the top of the crust. Add the apple butter pumpkin pie filling and bake. I baked my pie at 350* for about an hour and a half. The apple butter takes the pie to a new level and the cream cheese filling brings it to a whole new dimension. Delish ~ my family devoured it in no time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A very good pie, with a combination of flavors unlike any pie I have ever made (which are, in truth, not that many. I made it without a crust so that my relatives with gluten allergies were able to indulge. It was very easy to make, but the other pie I made (blueberry was more of a hit. This pie was a tad sweeter than I would prefer. Overall, it is still a recipe I would recommend. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Beautiful color, great texture, awful taste..... I will do it again but use a pumpkin pie spice mix instead of what it calls for! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My m-i-l made this pie for me. It was delicious. Funny thing, though...thinking she had seen the recipe before, she looked in her "old" Farm Journal Country Cookbook (copyright 1972; still available on Amazon and there was the word-for-word identical recipe. Hmmm! Paula didn't say where she got her recipe (she was just 25 years old in 1972, years and years from being famous. Farm Journal didn't say where they got their recipe. I ain't pointin' no fingers or nothing. I thought it was interesting. And a very good pie! item not reviewed by moderator and published
