    This pie is amazing! You will never be satisfied with store bought again. No adjustments needed, yes add the pepper! I am a crust person, and this has become the only recipe I use. Filling Recipe makes 6 mini pies and crust recipe makes 4 mini pies, so plan accordingly. Bake time is the same. Pies freeze very well. Yumm!

    Made one for thanksgiving and it was great. Smooth and great flavor. I thought about leaving the pepper out because I have never used it before in pumpkin pie and glad I didn’t. Will be my go to recipe!!!

    This recipe is super easy. Just follow it. Seriously. You can adjust spices later to your taste. Yummy and moist.

    I made this pie a couple of weekends back for my church’s Sunday Picnic and the pie turned out to be a hit. Everyone loved it. Best homemade pumpkin pie they have ever had. I would totally make this recipe again.

    Great pumpkin pie recipe. The crust was a little bland but I enjoyed the blind bake directions which definitely made it crunchier.

    This was the first time I’ve made a pie crust from scratch and it turned out perfect, nice and golden brown with a flaky crust. My husband takes pie crust very seriously and he loved it. I do need to work on my edges but it tastes good.

    Turned out very well. Omitted black pepper to accommodate guests preferences. Filling consistency was creamy, light & smooth without being sugary sweet. This is now my "go-to" recipe

    So when making this recipe I realized partway through that I was out of milk. I tried to improvise with a little butter... and it still tasted great! Definitely excited to try this with the actual ingredients next time.

    I don't usually like pumpkin pie, but I had a pie pumpkin I needed to use. It was delicious.
