The addition of apple butter gives this pumpkin pie a slightly fruity flavor. I'm always happy to share reliable recipes like this. —Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

"The best pumpkin pie ever! The apple butter just adds the right flavor and tones down the pumpkin a little. Our family really liked it!"

"Although I prefer a fluffy-type pie, this one was pretty darn good. I like the flavor the apple butter adds to the pumpkin. Followed the recipe as is, and I don't think I would change anything when I make it again. Nummy!"

"Have made this twice serving it to a number of different people with very positive reviews and have shared recipe with several. Really a "keeper" (not the pie, it disappears too fast; but the recipe)."

"Made this pie yesterday. Mine was darker than pictured but think that was because I used dark brown sugar. Served it to friends and the guy ate 1/3 of the pie smothered with whipped cream! I think this would be delicious baked like a custard. Will definitely make this again -- soon!"
