Everyone really loved this pie and it was gone within minutes. After reading the reviews I was worried about the flavor, so I added a dash extra of each spice listed in the filling and 2 tbsp sugar. I thought the flavors were great. I used the 3 tsp water in the streusel and it did not sink at all and was not soggy. Will definitely make again.

I thought it would be nice to have something different than plain pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. This was tasty, but I think I would prefer a traditional un-topped pie. I did almost double the spices and had no problem with the streusel topping.

This will be the third year I have made this pie, and the family continues to request it. I did increase the cloves to 1/4 tsp., which really boosted the flavor of the filling without adding additional sugar. I also omitted the pecans since my husband doesn't care for nuts and my sister has a nut allergy. It still turned out great!

Excellent!! I believe it would be just as good without the topping as well! You can really taste the spices in this pie! I plan on making this again. The whole family enjoyed it!

Brought this to Thanksgiving this year and everyone loved it. I made it just like the recipe stated except I accidently doubled the cinnamon in the pie filling. Tasted great. I would defintely make this gain ... the topping is so very good!

The best part of our Thanksgiving dinner! The perfect twist on a classic.

Made at Thanksgiving and making again at Christmas. Delicious, couldn't stop eating it. Made as written.

This was so easy and so delicious. I baked for the full 50 and probably should've taken a look after 45 mins. The outside crust was a tad dark, but still so delish!

Made this today to do a pre-trial for Thanksgiving. I wanted to do something different than the traditional pumpkin pie. I love the struesel topping. I did omit the pecans and doubled the oats instead as I have a family member with a nut allergy. I will definitely make this for Thanksgiving. Thank you for a great recipe.

I've made this pie a few times over the past years and I love it!! The only thing I do different is I use cinnamon plus from pampered che, which has a most of the spices listed, plus some extra. I use 2 teaspoons of that in the pie and 1 1/2 in the topping, and it is perfect!! Love this pie!

Ever since it appeared in the magazine, I've been making this pie for Thanksgiving. It is very tasty and my family loves it. A giant YUM!

I make this every year and no one knows it's light! It's just as tasty and decadent as regular pumpkin pie! And the topping really makes it special!
