Meet the Cook: Probably my family's favorite pumpkin dessert, this is something I've been making since our two daughters - now 23 and 18 - were small. the crust mixture, which is actually poured in first, rises to the top during baking to form a rich topping. So you don't get a soggy bottom crust like you do with a pie. -Darlene Markel, Stayton, Oregon

MY REVIEW

"Not good!! Spices were overpowering and had an odd aftertaste. The same with the crust. It tasted like a biscuit not a dessert."

"I'm getting ready to make this AGAIN and thought I should review it here. My husband's favorite dessert was pumpkin pie, but now he asks for this! So good and easy - a family favorite now!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 30, 2011

"I wanted to try something different with pumpkin other than bread and pie. I was just surprised at the amount of sugar in it. I love sugar but a total of 2 cups plus 2 tbls. seemed excessive and a bit too sweet. I gave this 4 stars because it tasted good but really didn't taste any different than pumpkin pie. It wasn't as dense but almost custard like. I probably wouldn't make it again because if it tastes like pumpkin pie, then the pie would be easier to make."
