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"
"This pie is amazing and it is a favorite of my 8 year old sons to make...I wouldn't change a single thing about this recipe!"
