The crustless pie is just as good or better than the original.  Try it....you'll like it!

GRANA here;
Hi  GARY R;
We prefer the filling anyway so I make no crust for family meals
HOW TO; Just as you guessed:
Use the same size pie pan as called for in the recipe  on cookie sheet for easier handling& bake as directed for  crusted pie. cool,top as desired)"real" whipped cream  or ice cream
Enjoy the savings of $$$, time & effort ..The pumpkin filling is the best part anyway!

Or lightly grease a one-two qt. ovenproof casserole, Bake at the same temp as pie [325'- 350'] till firm rm as desired; cool, top as desired w/"real " whipped cream/icecream.ENJOY  the savings of $$$$ time& effort  Wink

Thanks for all the info - it's nice to have a choice - crust or no crust.

While our family does like pumpkin pie, we also have a great fondness for pumpkin crumb cake.

Make the pie fillin as it says on the can and pour in a cake pan.  Lightly cut a 1/2 stick to a full stick of butter/ margrine in a white cake mix, but not completely leave some of the mix dry.  Sprinkle over the pumpkin mix (doesn't not need to be perfect or fully cover the pumpkin mix) and then back same as you would a pumpkin pie. Let it cool same as you would a pie and serve w/ whipped topping.  We like our cake warm so we let it cool just long enough for the pumpkin to lightly hold together when cut.

Cali, I do pretty much the same thing but I melt the butter and pour it over the top of the dry cake mix and I sprinkle on pecans as well.  I also like using a Spice Cake mix rather than white or yellow I think it gives more flavor.

My sister makes crustless pumpkin pie all the time.  My husband loves crust, so I don't do it.
