Love it! Easy and healthy. I used pumpkin fresh from my garden. I did not puree the pumpkin which gave the pie a rustic texture that went well with the honey. I don't like overly sweet desserts--this was just a touch of sweetness with great spiciness. Note: The pie shell needs to be cooked before putting in the filling--that wasn't very clear from the directions.

Delicious and easy to make. Used Fresh Pumpkin and a frozen deep dish pie crust. Baked on lowest rack in oven and crust cooked fine. After reducing temperature my pie required 45 minutes for the filling to be firm.

Recipe was so good! I don't like store bought pumpkin pie but this recipe was so good! I use regular large pumpkins from the grocery store.

This recipe is very good, the honey makes the spices pop. My husband and I were very happy with it.
