What a wonderfully simple and delicious pie - sweet but not candy-like. And so quick to make! My husband, who likes old-fashioned cooking, really enjoyed this one. We ate it warm, and then enjoyed it cold, too. I'll make it often. Maybe next time I'll try throwing a few raisins and pecans into the custard, as well. Thanks for submitting this recipe - it's definitely a "keeper"!

This was YUMMY!!!!! So good!!! Definitely a keeper. Instead of pumpkin pie spice I added 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. each of nutmeg and giner, and 1/4 tsp. cloves. DELICIOUS!!!!

This pie has been a huge hit everywhere I take it! I've found that the topping is best if the pecans have been finely chopped, it melts evenly distributed on top and every piece has the same amount of crunch.
