Reviews for Streusel Pumpkin Pie
"This pie was tasty. When a recipe makes 2 9 in pies, i use 1 deep dish and 1 regular plate. The batter was skimpy and so was the streusel. Next time I make them I will double everything."
"This recipe has become a family thanksgiving tradition ... they all love it!"
"YES I would make this pie again even though I changed it a little for my taste. I used a graham cracker crust. I added cinnamon to the filling and added more cinnamon to the streusel. I just love cinnamon. I have never been a measurer, I get a gut feeling as to how much recipes take. I have been wrong before but this time I wasnt. My fiance L-O-V-E-D this pie for his birthday. Thank you"
"Absolutly loved this recipe! Husband and I nearly fought over the last slice! Will make again and not just for the holidays! Made my own pumpkin pie filling with home canned pumpkin and homeade pumpkin pie spice (recipe found here at TOH) Very good tasting!"
"This is the pumpkin pie my family asks me to make each year. It is so good and a nice twist on the traditional pie recipe. Good served with some whipped topping of course."
