Reviews forEasy Pumpkin Pie
"While the recipe was very good as written, I've made some changes to get perfect for us: replaced maple syrup with molasses, decreased cinnamon to 1/2 tsp, and eliminated the maple flavoring."
"This recipe was a good one! I gave it a 4 star because it was a good base (starter) pie. Next time I make it I wont be using ANY of the maple ingredients as it was too strong a flavor for my tastes. Also, all that liquid left the pie runny and I had to leave it in the oven for 40 minutes longer (90 minutes total). Not that it was a big deal, just unexpected.. But other than that, I recommend giving it a shot!"
"Yummy! I omitted the maple flavoring and it still tasted great."
"easy & delicious"
"I made this for Thanksgiving this year. Everyone liked the hint of maple flavor in it. I used fresh pumpkin instead of canned. I would make this again."
