Review This Recipe
A little flat on flavor
The first time I made this exactly as on the can. My husband looked at it and said it wasn't dark enough and he is right. The pie is missing on the spices. I added 1/2 tsp more cinnamon 1/4 tsp more cloves and 1/2 tsp each of nutmeg and allspice. You can also up the sugar to a total of a cup. Best flavor. My son has to have a pie all to himself whenever I make them. Making some today !
This pie taste awesome and is so easy to make!
I won't make any other
My mom's been using this recipe as long as I can remember, and now it's the only one I'll use. Super easy, and couldn't taste better. (As a baker that would happily live eating solely pumpkin pie, you can take my word for it!)
I've used this recipe for years and now use fresh grated ginger instead of the powdered and love it even better. Makes great sweet potato pies, too.

Best Pumpkin Pie Ever
I have been making this pumpkin pie since I was in junior high school. My grandmother and mother made it too. I decided to try using my homegrown pumpkin in my pie this year and could not find my recipe so I had to look for it online. I am a little doubtful about how the pie is going to taste as apposed to using Libby's canned pumpkin, but since I grew the pumpkin, I just had to give it a try. Thanks for having the recipe.
Too much milk!
It works better with two thirds cup of Evaporated milk rather than a whole cup. The packages used to say that on the package but it was changed for some silly reason.Now its soupy with that much milk!
A Thanksgiving (or any time) classic!
In growing up, I was always used to the pumpkin pie that was already made and you stick it in the oven and it's done. Since discovering this, it's the only one I'll use. Another alternative to using all the spices would be to add those measurements together and use The Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus Spice Blend. This recipe is so easy and so much fun to make! I can't wait to teach my daughter this year!
Special Pumpkin Pie
I have been baking this pie at Thanksgiving for at least 20 years. As a man this recipe is within my skill range and I have never had any problem with the steps fitting together. I always enjoy eating this pie.
this pie is so good. i always love a pumpkin pie its good for the winter seasons!
Love it but I found something...
I love this recipe but my mother and I use "Pumpkin Pie Spice" instead of Ginger and Ground Cloves. This is the only Pumpkin Pie I will eat.
This is the only pumpkin pie recipe I have ever used. I will keep using it as long as I have it.
This pie turns out perfect every time, especially with the store-bought pie crust. My family loves it!
The Best Pumpkin Pie
My family has used this recipe for their pumpkin pies, for as long as I can remember. We use the same recipe every year. It is very good.
Family Favorite for a lifetime
No need to look further for the perfect pumpkin pie recipe. My mother taught me to make pies from scratch when I was a little girl, and this is the recipe she used and I've had all my life.
My most requested
My husband's absolute favorite pie, and even our toddler granddaughter requests it! And friends request it. And my siblings request it...
How Can You Go Wrong !
This is the quintessential Thanksgiving recipe and can't be improved on. The splenda idea is a good one and you can make homemade whipped cream with the splenda too. I save the crust scraps and cut out maple leaves and brush them with milk and sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar. I bake them and then when the pie cools and before serving I add them to the top of the pie it looks festive and hides any cracks in the surface of the pie.
Libby's Pumkin Pie
I make this with splenda,You can't tell the difference neither did my family.

libbys pumpkin pie
i love this pie
There is a reason this recipe is "famous": it makes the perfect holiday pie. Quick, easy, practically foolproof.
Tried many recipes but this one is the only one that I use anymore...it's the best!
Only Way To Go
I only use Libby Pumpkin for my pies. Won't buy store premade pies. This is the best way to make a pumpkin pie.
Best Pumpkin Pie
Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie recipe is the best pumpkin pie. This is my middle son's favorite pie and he doesn't think it's a holiday if he doesn't get one.
Libbys Pumpkin Pue
Very Good taste and texture. Simple to make for a first time pie baker.
this recipe was sooo easy and also soo very good
I used this recipe to make a pie for my brother whose diabetic. I substituted the sugar for Splenda. Upon eating he asked "you made this with splenda?" Obviously he loved it. I recommend this to anyone. It's perfect!
I never made my own pumpkin pie,always bought ready made at the grocery store. Tried this recipe and found that it was easy and tasted so much better than a store bought pie.
Libby's pumpkin pie
If you want to make pumpkin pie it has to be Libby's. I have tried fresh pumpkin but it is never as good!!
Great Pumpkin Pie
This pie was one of the best I ever fixed.
when fresh is not available, only Libby's will do. i have been making pumpkin pies for as long as i can remember, ever since my first halloween, and always enjoyed cutting the pumpkin down and freezing it for pumpkin pie all year round, but there are times when you have to go with canned and only Libby's will be in my pie.
Libby's pumpkin pie filling for Diabetes
I just substituted splenda for the sugar. It turned out great. My husband can enjoy pumpkin pie filling once again. I make the filling an place in individual custard cups. Seems like the real thing
I'm not good at making pies but this recipe sounded easy. I had to give it a try. So glad I did. The family thought I bought the pie till I told them I made it. They didn't believe me at first because I'm not good at making pies. But I finally won them over. This is a GREAT recipe. Thanks for sharing it.
oh my goodness
I have just made my first Libbys Pumpkin Pie, and oh my goodness it is amazing and so easy to make the only problem i have is that i live in Ireland and it is really hard to get tins of Libbys, i just got a few sent over from the USA it was expensive but worth it.
Simply Easy to make
Pumpkin Pie is my all time favorite dessert. I rarely attempt home made pies. I just tried this recipe and it was easy and tasted wonderful. I have added it to my list of "home made desserts". I will no longer buy them store bought. Fresh is the best.
Just Like Mom's
Mom always made her own crust and used Libby's pumpkin and the recipe from the label, for her pies. Now I follow her "recipe" and make my own delicious pies! I always get compliments! By the way, I got Mom's recipe box after she passed on and there is an old Libby's label saved in there - she wanted to make sure she had the recipe. I have tried other brands of pumpkin and nothing compares to Libby's!! Thanks for a great product!
Famous Pumpkin Pie
I have been using this recipe for years and have been told by recipients that it is the best they have ever tasted.
Wonderful Mouth Watering Pies
This is a 4 star recipe as written, but... 5 star with Mother's additions! My mother has been making this recipe for many years. She uses this recipe to make sweet potato pie too. Mother only uses approx. 4-6 oz of the evaporated milk, because she also add's an 8 oz brick of cream cheese, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Mother always makes the most wonderful mouth watering pies, they are not as runny as the written recipe, or as thick and heavy as a cheesecake. The texture is perfectly in the middle!
So Easy & So Delicious
This was my first Thanksgiving cooking ... I made Libby's pumpkin pie and everyone loved it. It was very simple to make and very yummy :-)
Baked vs Bought
I always make Libby's for thanksgiving. Everyone loves it, but I know they all think I bought it, but I know when you bake it your self, it's special because you made it with love. :)
I love using this recipe and it's great! Everyone loves my Pumpkin pies because of this recipe.
Easiest Ever---no fail
I've used this recipe on multiple occasions, with great success each time. I finally just bookmarked it on my favorites.
World Famous pumpkin pie
Libby's pumpkin pie is the best. I refuse to eat any other. Why would anyone buy a ready made pumpkin pie when this is so easy to make and it is always the same. Thank you Libby!!!
Love this one!!!
I use this recipe every year the whole family loves it and my daughter uses it now ! It's become a shared family recipe in our home Thanks Happy holidays
In my family, we take turns making the pies for the holidays. This year is my year, and I'd never made a pumpkin pie before in my life. I gave this recipe a test drive. It was sooo easy and the pie was perfect!!
Libby's is the best by far. I've tried peeling and cooking my own pumpkin and Libby's tastes as good with less fuss.
I grew up on this, and I don't want anything else. We're going to my step-daughter's for dinner, she said buy to pumpkin pies. Forget it. I'm MAKING 3, 1 to keep at home for us.
