"This smells fabulous cooking. The flavor is superb! However, even though I mashed the pumpkin, my mom said that I should have run it through a sieve. There were "strings." It was still eaten! By the 3rd day when there was only one piece left, it was very stringy! I don't know what to do about that!"
"I made an account just to review this. Five stars all the way. Were it possible, I would rate higher. This was my first time to make a pumpkin pie literally from scratch (though I cheated with buying a premade crust and using whole milk). This pie is phenomenal! I've never had one this good! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I can't wait to delight during Thanksgiving this year. :)"
"I made this recipe b/c of all the great ratings, but I thought it was the worst pumpkin pie I’ve ever had. Feedback from friends was mixed…a couple thought it was bad too, a couple thought it was ok, but no one raved about it. One liked that it wasn't very sweet. Baked it less time b/c the crust was burning, even with foil around it. pie was a little looser than I would have liked, but didn’t want to keep it in any longer. Can’t believe so many people gave it 5s!"
"I was very intimidated by the idea of making a pumpkin from scratch with a fresh picked pumpkin. I was lucky enough to run across this recipe first and it didn't take me very long at all! My husband hates pumpkin pie and he devoured my pie from this recipe! So easy and DELICIOUS! I will be making this pie recipe every year from now on for Thanksgiving!"
"This is a great from scratch, fresh pumpkin recipe. It doesn't turn out orange, but at least you know there's no artificial colors in it."
"I was nervous when I read I'd be Microwaving the pumpkin, but this was a favorite last year and has been specially requested for this year! It doesn't hurt either that it was very easy to make."
