Looking For Good Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Everyone I talk to seems to have their own variation on that old classic, pumpkin pie. I'm a bit bored with my own recipe...anyone have some tasty suggestions?

  1. Might want to take a look at this recent thread with a ton of ideas: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/917612

    1. I'm trying this recipe tomorrow with an all-butter crust: http://www.thenourishinggourmet.com/2...

      1. The one on the back of Libbys is as good as any.

        1. re: coll

          Except it's too sweet. Cut the sugar by at least half and adjust the spices to personal taste.

        2. Bake a halved, gutted kabocha (a.k.a. butterCUP, not NUT) squash and use that for the filling. It tastes like a mixture of acorn squash and sweet potato, and is not at all watery.

          Remember The Prairie Home Companion adage that the best pumpkin pie you've ever tasted is not all that different from the worst pumpkin pie you've ever tasted.

          1. The best pumpkin pie I ever tasted was made with a can of almond flavored sweetened condensed milk that I picked up at Big Lots. I never found another can of that flavored condensed milk. I ended up adding some almond extract to the plain flavored kind, and that was good, too.
