I made this pie with a regular pumpkin pie. My family loved it. In fact, they preferred it to the regular pumpkin. I never thought I would hear that!

My husband wanted a pecan pie and I had to use the rest of the pumpkin from my large can so I made this pie. I added toasted pecan to the almonds and doubled the receipe for a deep dish pie. This is an excellent pie. I did add a little half and half to the pumkin so it would be a little more moist.

very good!

We loved this little twist on the pumpkin pie, with almonds it's very tasty and they add a little crunch

Not your usual pumpkin pie recipe. The toasted almonds added a new twist and it was a great addition. It took me longer than the recommended preparation time of 12 minutes, but the results were more than worth it! We served this with vanilla ice cream and EVERYONE wanted seconds. You MUST try this recipe - it will become a favorite. Extremely tasty and different. My family flipped over it.

Preparation may take a little more than the posted 12 minutes - well worth the time. This pumpkin pie recipe will make anyone like pumpkin pie. I usually make regular pumpkin pies but made this recipe to introduce friends to pumpkin pie when they would never select it. This recipe offers an improvement in the presentation and is delicious.

I loved the texture of the pie very velvety. It has great flavour with the almonds too.

Flavor Meld

Very interesting pie -- the pumpkin and almond flavors meld into something altogether unique! It's not too sweet, which is great. Next time I might try using smaller almond pieces on top because some of my pie-eaters weren't sure about the crunch -- although I enjoyed that aspect!
