Reviews for Butter Pecan Pumpkin Pie
"This was my first attempt at making something for my family's Thanksgiving, after I made two of them and took them down, I found out no one really liked pumpkin pie. So I brought it home and went to work. Got home and found my dad had eaten BOTH of them. So they must have been delicious!"
"This was a big hit!"
"Great presentation, easy, and delicious."
"At the melting ice cream stage I whisked in a little softened gelatin which helped the ice cream hold its shape after the 15 min defrost stage.The flavors are awesome. Genius recipe."
"It was worth the steps to make this pie, everyone loved it."
