Wonderful

When I first tried this recipe I was curious about the combination of the apples and pumpkin, but it turned out so creamy and the flavors melded together so well that it has become a family favorite! I don't always use fresh apples; sometimes I use apples that we have canned and they seem to hold up well (not the weird gelatinous ones that come in cans from the store, but home preserved). I highly recommend this pie to anyone who wants to try somethign different and likes both apple and pumpkin pies.

really unique

When I saw this recipe I found it intriging but wasn't sure about it. I am sooo glad that I tried it, it is one of the best recipes I've ever had.

My own version

I made double the apple layer and omitted the pumpkin layer (b/c my bf doesn't like pumpkin). It was fantastic. The best 1st attempt to a pie I've ever made. The apples were perfect. I will make this one again with the pumpkin mix.

I was so delighted to find this old favorite. I used it for many years when our children were at home.It is just as wonderful today as it was back then.It started as a compromise between pumpkin & apple pie lovers & soon became a favorite to all. Thanks for keeping it in the archives.

I am the baker of the family, but one of my daughters wanted to show that she could bake great pies too, and one Thanksgiving she made this Pumpkin Dutch Apple Pie. It was a big hit and established her as a great baker just like Mom!

I first found this recipe in 1994 from a Libby's advertisement. I make it every year around this time. People are suprised by the name but rave about it once they eat it! I lost that original magazine last year when I moved so I looked it up at this site.

Nice change

This was very good, a bit different with the crisp apples on the bottom but will make again as everyone enjoyed it. Nice blend of flavors.

Pretty as a picture

Made this pie for the first time for friends. They all loved it and wanted the recipe. Definitely a different spin on pumpkin pie. Sure will make it again.
