"I make this pie at least 5 times every year from Thanksgiving to Christmas. My kids love it! And it's so easy to make!"

"My husband doesn't care for pumpkin anything. He said the chocolate chips helped give him the courage to try it. He had a second serving even. I used fresh pumpkin instead of canned. I liked how I could easily change the strength of the flavor with the seasoning."

"This was really easy to make and it set up quickly. It was absolutely delicious. I served it to a dinner party of 8 and everyone raved. The creamy texture coupled with the mini semi-sweet chips provided the perfect balance. I will make this for the upcoming holidays."

"Have made many variations of pumpkin desserts where the pumpkin is not cooked in the recipe. I truly believe the secret to developing the best flavor in recipes like this is to prepare it a day ahead. The pumpkin doesn't taste as "raw" or something. We love this pie. Gingersnap crust would also be another flavor level."

"While this was certainly easy to make (a big plus), I found it to be too sweet and didn't care that much for it."

"Great alternative to pumpkin pie! Even those who don't like traditional pumpkin pie ate this at Thanksgiving! I froze 4-5 hours before serving and liked the texture a lot (it did not completely freeze, just hardened a bit)."

"I am not a fan of pumpkin pie, nor will I ever be, but I LOVE this pie! I was asked to bring pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving last year, and decided to try this recipe instead. Everyone loved it, and didn't even miss the traditional pumpkin pie. I will be making it again this year...and probably every year after! Super easy!"

"I was confused about pudding mix size - the small box is 1oz and the larger box is 1.5 oz - used the small box - very stiff immediately with just 3/4 cup milk - think recipe made up fine but would have liked clearer amts - (even small or large box of pudding mix would have helped!)"
