Reviews for Pumpkin Chip Cream Pie
"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."
"Absolutely love this recipe. It's light and fluffy, has a nice pumpkin spice flavor and the mini chocolate chips taste so good in it. Five stars from me!!"
"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."
"Too spicy! Did not enjoy at all"
"Going to try soon"
"Very good and easy to make, and just the right amount of pumpkin flavour."
"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)."
