Can anyone tell me if this is overly sweet?

This is a very easy and tasty pie. I used a graham cracker crust instead because I prefer them for these types of pies. This was a big hit with my kids.

I've been making a very similar pie like this for over 40 years. It's so much easier to melt the marshmallows, pumpkin, and spices together in the microwave. My recipe calls for ginger in place of the allspice, no salt, and real whipped cream. I will be making this tomorrow, for Thanksgiving, and try it with the salt.The pie crust I make is a "Mix-in-the-plate" Pie Crust. You mix all the ingredients in the pie plate with a fork, and then press it out to fill the pie plate. Dock with a fork, and bake for a few minutes. So easy.

For those that do not understand the crust. It does not say to bake the pie once it has filling in it so you would of course bake the pie crust before filling. It is a refrigerated pie.
