Why does the 29 oz can of pure pumpkin (which I've been using for years) say it makes 2 pies, but the 30 oz can of pumpkin MIX (pre-spiced) says it only makes ONE pie?  That does not make any sen

Hi John and welcome to VBB.  I would assume that since you have to add sugar and other ingredients to the pure pumpkin it would probably double in volume for the 2 pies.  The mix already has all the additions in it.  Hope this helps.

Hi John.  Our Easy Pumpkin Pie mix has all of the ingredients to make a Pumpkin Pie except for Evaporated Milk and eggs.  That is why the bigger can makes only one pie.
