Reviews for Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie
"My husband hates traditional pumpkin pie and I tried this recipe to see if my theory about why was correct. I'm not a huge fan of regular pumpkin pie either and I know it's because of the spices in it. After making this easy pie, I know my theory is true. This recipe is a keeper! I love that it's easy, doesn't take long to make and it doesn't have all the spices in regular pumpkin pie. Love this!"
"This is absolutely delicious"
"Just from the look at the nutritional values, the carbs are 61.... that is carbs for an entire meal.I'll have to save up carbs for this"
"This tasted great and was simple to make! Very flavorful! I made it the day before and let it chill and firm. Perfect!"
"Great pie! Easy to make and just delicious! I made mine with fresh pumpkin and it got really amazing! Thanks for sharing!"
"A nice easy pie for when you want a nice fresh taste (not spicy). My kids loved it and I will make again. I used 2 cups of pumpkin puree I had thawed from freezer."
"i made this and after that day in the fridge it was awesome. it just needs to firm up before you eat it. so make sure you put in the fridge first then puts lost of whipped cream on top yum! :)"
"Very sweet, I might try a different recipe and come back to this"
"This was a very simple and easy recipe. The kids loved to help make this pie and they just gobbled it all up!"

"My new favorite pumpkin pie recipe. If you're not a fan of pumpkin pie because they're too overly "spicey", so to speak, then this is ideal for you. Some versions of pumpkin pies are so doctored up with nutmeg, cloves, allspice and the like that you truly lose the good pumpkin flavor. This, however, is perfectly flavored."
"A new favorite!"
"This is my go-to recipe for pumpkin pie now. My husband loves it. The only change I made was using half & half instead of milk. Delicious and easy!"
"We loved this pie. Super easy and not so overwhelming with spice flavor. Just great!"
"My husband said this is the best pumpkin pie ever!"
"This simple pie is so easy to make and taste amazing. The cinnamon really brings out the flavor of the pumpkin."
"I made this for a group of people and it got great reviews!"
"I agree this is very good. This will be my recipe now."
"This pie is wonderful. I didn't think it would be as good without the classic evaportated milk, but it is. With fewer spices the pumpkin flavor really comes through. It's a mild flavor that doesn't leave an aftertaste like some with ginger and nutmeg can."
"This is the recipe I have used for 50 years. It is a favorite of my family."
