"This was an excellent recipe and easy to make! I did "cheat" and use a refrigerated pie crust, but you could very well make your own for this recipe. Will definitely be making this again for Thanksgiving this year. Decadent but worth it!"

"My family really enjoyed this one. I did have to switch out a few ingredients and I left out the Crystallized Ginger as I do not care for it. For the spice mix I used cinnamon, and nutmeg and a pinch of allspice. I also used evaporated milk instead of the cream The filling was not overly firm. I would recommend a little larger sized pie plate as I had about a cup of filling left over. I also feel that the streusel topping could be down sized. Again I had left overs.

I would make this one again.

"I've been making this since it first appeared and it's a requirement at every Thanksgiving & Christmas get together. I've found mixing it by hand gets the best results. We all love the flavor and the crystallized ginger really makes it wonderful. I add extra into the pie filling. Chopping the ginger is easier if it's frozen."

"This was good, but not great. The pumpkin batter was so thin so it didn't firm up well. I didn't want to overbake it, but it turned out a little mushy. It firmed up somewhat in the fridge, but it was not firm like a pumpkin pie normally is. It had a very mild spice flavor. I did not use crystallized ginger..just ground ginger. I don't think I would bother to make it again."

"I didn't have ground allspice, so I used a teaspoon of my own pumpkin pie spice blend plus half a teaspoon of extra cinnamon. I used 1 c of whipping cream and a half a cup of 2% milk with melted butter to make up the difference. The streusel directions make a whole lot of topping! After 40 minutes in the oven the pie was still completely liquid. I covered it with tin foil and ended up baking it at least 1:15. I had to leave the house and the pie wasn't finished so I actually just turned off the oven, leaving the pie inside. This is probably all my oven's fault. In any case, it did get baked and I got lots of positive reviews at the potluck; I even had two pieces myself! Thanks for this new classic!"

"First, I should say that I do not usually make or eat pumpkin pie, because I don't find it all that tasty. But this Thanksgiving, I wanted to roast and use my decorative pumpkins, and this is the recipe I chose. The only changes I made were to use my own pumpkin puree and my own homemade pie crust. I suppose it is a good pie, as pumpkin pies go, and very rich. The streusel makes for a ton of topping, a bit more than is necessary, in my book. Anyway, while this is rich and fairly yummy, it really isn't yummy enough (maybe because it is a pumpkin pie?) for me to go ga-ga over it, hence the four stars."

"This is one of the best versions of pumpkin pie I've had. I tried it for the first time a couple years ago, and even though the pumpkin layer seemed a little watery, my husband and I still thought it was very good, and loved the streusel topping. I made it again a couple days ago, but this time, I used sweet potatoes instead of pumpkin, and I liked that much better. It wasn't so watery. The texture was perfect, so from now on, I'll make it with sweet potatoes instead."

"Absolutely the BEST pumpkin pie I've ever tasted. I brought it to Thanksgiving dinner and the host's husband said the same! It did take about 2 hours to bake, though. After reading other cook's similar situation, I decided to add the streusel after the pie had begun to set up a bit. Then I tented the pie with foil to prevent the topping from burning and removed the foil during the last 30 minutes."
