my mom has for years made Pumpkin Chiffon the consensus at the dinner table was this was the better then the her usual recipe (she used that recipe for 35 years but with a move it is still in a box) My Personal comment is that I was never a big fan of the original but I loved this the spices were the right balance

The pie was wonderful but I can't help but wonder if there is an easier way to get to the same end result. I did use a frozen pie crust and store-bought whip cream to save on time. These shortcuts still produced a well-liked dessert. The pumpkin flavor is not very strong for those who aren't crazy about traditional pumplin pie. I would make this again but allow more time to pull it together.

This was a big hit for a holiday gathering. Light and not too sweet. Will make again.

Wow, this is really good! Most pumpkin pie is so heavy, but this is really light and fluffy. This may be my new favorite holiday pie. It's a fair bit of work with the gelatin, egg whites, and cooked sugar, but I thought it was fun to do something different. Probably not for beginners, though. I lost my candy thermometer, so I just cooked the sugar to the hard-ball stage and it was fine.

I made this for Thanksgiving and it is amazing. Light and not heavy on the spices. I was skeptic while preparing because it's quite a bit of work but it was well worth the effort. I did not use the recipe for their crust though. I also didn't have nutmeg but subbed ground mace since they are so similar in flavor.

Served this for Thanksgiving and it went over quite well, despite some odd looks when I brought it out. I loved that this was light and fluffy, not dense and tasting like pumpkin pie filling like your standard pumpkin pie recipe. Will likely make again.

Made this the wed of thanksgiving week. It was pretty good but even better the day after thanksgiving. I guess it needed more time to sit and absorb the ingredients. I'll use pumpkin pie spice next time. I liked the consistency and made the crust using whole wheat flour and it was great. Needed more whipped cream however.
