MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2013

This was pretty easy to make and everyone enjoyed it. I will make it again next year.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2013

After reading the comments about the strong taste of the maple syrup, I halfed it in both the filling and the topping. I also did half the sugar in the topping and it was still plenty sweet. It was a huge hit!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 23, 2012

This was very good, but when I added the pecans before baking, most of them sank into the pumpkin mixture toward the middle. That part of the pie never really set. Any suggestions?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2012

we thought it was great. someone mentioned that it overflowed and yes, it did a little so I wouldn't pour quite all of it in the pan. I just made it yesterday and have already given it to 2 friends. I like the combo of both pumpkin and pecan pies. Very tasty!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 6, 2012

Correct this recipe's one flaw and you will have a good pie: it's too much filling for a pie crust, even a deep dish pie crust.
