Looking for a different Pumpkin PIE recipe than libbys:)

Hi all!

I usually use libby's pumpkin pie recipe, which I like a lot. I just cooked an entire pumpkin and want to make another pie but am interested in trying a different recipe. Any suggestions on a good pumpkin pie recipe that is not libbys? Thanks!

    a few of us were discussing pies on another thread and this one is different and marvelous!

      that looks really yummy! since i have all this pumpkin puree sitting in the refrig, I want a recipe that definitely uses pumpkin. Just something maybe different, in any way, than libbys.

        have you tried the popular pecan pie/pumpkin pie combo? Creamy pumpkin in the middle with a crunchy pecan topping.

        crustless pumpkin pie.. like a custard is delicious.

        I'd use the rest for a carrot pumpkin curry soup

      There's always pumpkin cheesecake -- if you've never tried it you're in for a capital T Treat.

        i like to do a cream cheesey layer on top of the pumpkin filling and lightly swirl with a toothpick.

        sometimes i add a roasted creamy chestnut layer on the bottom (sometime pair this with butternut squash instead of pumpkin.)

        Use roasted and mashed sweet potatoes instead of canned pumpkin.

          Hi, I posted a recipe a while back that uses coconut milk instead of evaporated or condensed. It's our go-to pumpkin pie recipe.

          Here's a link to the thread:

            This triple layer chocolate/pumpkin/cream pie takes some time but is WELL worth it: http://familyfun.go.com/recipes/tripl...

              This one from epicurious graced my table last Thanksgiving - I am not a fan of pumpkin pie myself, but even I found this one quite good.

                Probably any time now through Christmas the stores will stock Jello spicy pumpkin pudding mix. Follow the pie directions and make a crust out of crushed gingersnaps, fresh whipped cream on top. Haven't found anyone yet that didn't love it.

                  I love the recipe from the 1998 Joy of Cooking -- I make it with 2 eggs, which gives a very pronounced pumpkiny flavor, and a good set. (3 eggs really softens the pumpkin flavor and gives it a soft-custard consistency).
