I'm not a big pumpkin fan, so this review should be read with that in mind. First the good: super easy and fast. That said, it tastes fine - just like a pumpkin pie, but the texture is mushy...almost like pudding.

I have a concern about this recipe. I cannot find plain pumpkin in a 29 oz can...pumpking pie FILLING comes in a can about that size...but due to the ingredients in the recipe, I don't think the pie filling is what's being asked for. The recipe looks delicious and I was planning to bake it today. Please advise if the pumpkin amount is correct. Thanks so much!
