Cook's Notes

To prepare the pies in stages, make the dough and either freeze or refrigerate, then roll out, fit into pie plates, and chill again. The shells can be covered tightly and refrigerated for a day or two or frozen for longer (thaw in refrigerator before proceeding).

    You're almost there, add some molasses, about 2 tbsp per pie. It gives it a fabulous taste.

    I had about 2 cups of pie filling left over after trying this recipe. I used it as a custard base to make some delicious pumpkin bread pudding! It took 3 more beaten eggs, some milk and vanilla extract, and some more cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar for flavor.

    There is no way the top of that pie in the picture is natural. Even my most perfect pumpkin pies have some texture on the top and I've made hundreds. Come on publishers give us lowly home cooks a chance and stop photoshopping food like you photoshop models. Now that being said I really like the filling part of this recipe but I prefer using a vodka based pie crust to the more traditional Pate Brisee. The Vodka makes the pie crust easier to manipulate and evaporates upon cooking.

    the crust looked great until i baked it and it came out horrible! using beans as pie weights totally didn't work and my crust was ruined. it all melted on itself. i didn't have time money or ingredients to start over so i have 2 absolutely horrible looking pies that i spent a rediculous amount of time on that will hopefully at least taste ok. this is my first epic fail for pie and i will probably never use this recipe again.

    This pie came out amazing. It was my first homemade pie and my boyfriend said that he doesn't think he can eat another pumpkin pie after it ever. I didn't tackle the leaf decorations on the crust (baby steps) but maybe next time. Definitely use fresh pumpkin it makes so much of a difference!

    I made this pie this year for Thanksgiving and it turned out beautiful except that everyone that ate it said it wasn't sweet enough. Can I add sugar or simply increase brown sugar? I would definitely make this pie next year. Thanks for your hlep
