Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

The addition of apple butter gives this pumpkin pie a slightly fruity flavor. I'm always happy to share reliable recipes like this. —Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

    This makes a really good-tasting pumpkin pie! Made it recently for a family gathering, and everyone loved it!

    This pie is perfect if you want a traditional pumpkin pie but won’t something a bit different.

    The best pumpkin pie ever! The apple butter just adds the right flavor and tones down the pumpkin a little. Our family really liked it!

    Although I prefer a fluffy-type pie, this one was pretty darn good. I like the flavor the apple butter adds to the pumpkin. Followed the recipe as is, and I don't think I would change anything when I make it again. Nummy!

    Have made this twice serving it to a number of different people with very positive reviews and have shared recipe with several. Really a "keeper" (not the pie, it disappears too fast; but the recipe).

    Made this pie yesterday. Mine was darker than pictured but think that was because I used dark brown sugar. Served it to friends and the guy ate 1/3 of the pie smothered with whipped cream! I think this would be delicious baked like a custard. Will definitely make this again -- soon!

    I don't normally like pumpkin pie however I tried a little of this one after baking it for my family last Christmas. It is awesome and I've made it twice this fall and received many compliments!

    This is really good. It has a really nice texture and a little different flavor of pumpkin pie than we are used to. Perfect fall pie!
