Pumpkin Perfect

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

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

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.
