    Pumpkin Perfect

    Marie DeAngelis from Sunrise, FL

    This is a fabulous pie! A great variation of Libby's famous pumpkin pie, the nuts and crunch topping compliments the pumpkin and spice flavors, and "dress up" this pie in gourmet style. A new favorite! Will make it again and again for the Holidays.

    A Different Pumpkin Pie

    Laura Fagan from RICHLAND, WA

    This recipe was very easy to follow and make. What a great new way to have a traditional holiday favorite! Made one for Thanksgiving and had to make another for Christmas. Everyone said it was the best Pumpkin Pie they had ever enjoyed!

    Great twist on pumpkin pie

    Catherine Pope from FARMINGTON, NM

    I tried this topping on individual pumpkin custards (to save the calories from the crust) and it was superb. My guests loved it too. Adds a great flavor and crunch to the smooth pumpkin filling. It's a keeper.

    An Instant Favorite

    Cynthia Legler-Klein from PITTSBURGH, PA

    Absolutely delicious! I added some cinnamon to the brown sugar-walnut mixture, and substituted a jar of baby food sweet potatoes for some of the pumpkin. I actually had enough filling for two pies. The filling also freezes well. Fantastic pie!!!

    This is a keeper

    Marianne Hunsinger from LAKEVILLE, NY

    Wanted something a little different from just a plain pumpkin pie. Made this for Thanksgiving and it was delicious! Everyone raved about it. This will definitely be a keeper for my recipe box.

    wonderful twist on the traditional

    LAURA MCDANIEL from NAPERVILLE, IL

    We had this pie for Thanksgiving. Our family is split between traditional pumpkin pie and a fluffier version. When they had this pie, they ALL loved it! It's slightly fluffier than a traditional pie, and the walnuts add interesting texture and flavor. I would definitely recommend giving it a try. I know we will have it again. Enjoy!

    Pretty tasty

    Shannan Williamson from FONTANA, CA

    I made three of these pies for Thanksgiving. They were good, but I thought that the walnuts in the crust made the pie a little soggy. Next time I will just put the walnut crunch mixture on the top of the pie.

    Walnut Crunch

    Bethany Johnson from SAN ANTONIO, TX

    I just made this for Thanksgiving...it was really good, but I should have also made a regular pumpkin. The brown sugar topping distracted from the pumpkin flavor. So on its own, a good recipe. But in place of the traditional, doesn't quite cut it.

    Great Alternative

    Hollie Toenjes from EMMETT, KS

    This pie is a great alternative to plain old pumpkin pie, and so easy to make. It has all the great flavor of pumpkin pie but is dressed up with the carmelized walnuts (which are addictive all on their own!)

    This is a great pie! We love pumpkin (just about anything) but the candied layer of walnuts broiled on top the pumpkin pie really gives it a wonderful taste. Add a dollop of whipped cream...Mmmm great combination.

    I love pumpkin pie, but except for one of my granddaughters, no one else cared for it until I made this version. They were hesitant to try it, but after the first tast, they were converted! Now everyone loves THIS pumpkin pie!

    Terrific pumpkin pie

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    I like pumpkin pie, and I like to try diffent types of pumpkin pie. I had done pumpkin/pecan pies many times, but not a pumpkin walnut. It is very, very good. Now, which "pumpkin" dessert will I decide on for Thanksgiving?

    yum

    Angela Hill from SHALIMAR, FL

    I loved the pie and everything but when I made it last year for Thanksgiving, the walnuts just fell off when i was eating it and cutting it. I'm trying it this year but putting the walnuts on top while it bakes. Other than that, this is truly the best way to eat pumpkin pie, with sugared walnuts for crunch!

    Sinfully Wonderful!

    Kimberly A. Bonk from Lutz, FL

    This is the second year I have made this pie! It makes me the star of the dinner everytime. I made this for a Thanksgiving potluck last night and the entire pie was gone in ten minutes. I had requests for the recipe immediately. Easy to make but, makes you look like a gourmet cook. It's an upgrade from the basic, boring pumpkin pie every year.

    Great with pecans!

    Easy to make and very moist. I "sub.ed" pecans and it was great! No high altitude change was needed.

    Walnut Crunch Pumpkin Pie

    Marlene Julian from APACHE JUNCTION, AZ

    This pie is wonderful! It's a nice change from pumpkin, pecan and pumpkin pecan, which are all favorites of my family. This pie brought so many compliments from my co-workers at a recent potluck. It is so easy to make but gives a quality and taste that imply otherwise.
