Favorite pumpkin pie recipes

I want to make a really great pumpkin pie this year and so I am inquiring to find the best recipe(s) out there. Any suggestions?

Also, has anyone here tried Cook's Illustrated's pumpkin pie recipes? They seem like quite a bit more work since they call for cooking the filling, etc. etc. and I am wondering if it is really worth it / results in a lot better pie?

Thanks.

The recipe on the back of the Libby's pumpkin pie can suits me to a T. But I'm a simple gal! I'm sure there will be some really good recipes popping up here.

I just posted a thread about our favorite pumpkin pie recipe. Look here to see it.

We love it. I'll eat any kind of pumpkin pie. I also have a praline one that's good, but that's another thread.

Ok Yall Panco don't bake but I decided I want to make Pumkin Pie this year.... I have never made it before... Katie your recipe looks great but I do want to bake it....

I will use canned pumpkin and pre-made crusts.... so take those out of the variables..

The can recipe looks fine but I was wondering if anyone had some tips of small substitutions to make it come extra tasty... I was thinking of using fresh ginger instead of powder... also it calls for evaporated milk.... is there some sort of fresh cream I can use instead?

I made Libby's pumpkin pie a couple of weeks ago and used crystallized ginger instead of the powder. It was very good. I would be afraid that fresh ginger would have too sharp a taste for a dessert, but maybe not. Anyway, I've always used the Libby's recipe and we really like it

We're going to try Katie Marshmallw pumpkin pie this year. It looks good and fluffy. I don't make crust though so I'm going to use a premade grahm cracker one.

Hope you like it, Trish. I've never used a graham cracker crust. Sounds yummy. I've already made mine, so I'll have to try that another time.

My favorite is Nick Malgieri's recipe. Even people who hate pumpkin pie like it.

Well I went ahead and made the can recipe... I decided on TG Pumpkin Pie should taste like you expect it to.... I sort of felt like I was cheating though its too easy and everything is canned.... The whole thing took 15 min It came out way better than a supermarket PP (I made a little tester pie with the extras). I could probably have put more sugar and I overfilled the crust a bit but all and all I am pleased. Maybe next time I will be more ambitious
