This was the first pie I ever made (actually the first thing I ever cooked) and it was delicious. I consider this pie my pride and joy because it always comes out beautifully and tastes amazing. Other raters have complained about the lack of sweetness but what gives this pie balance is the layer of marshmallows on top. It's wonderful!

I made this pie last Thanksgiving and plan on making it again this year. Last year I had a hard time grating the gingerroot, but this year I am prepared, as I found a jar of grated fresh ginger in the grocery store's produce section. The ginger is what makes this pie so delicious, so don't skip it. I liked the marshmallow topping when the marshmallows were still warm & soft, but not so much on the leftovers when they were cold.

Something is missing from this recipe and I think it's about a cup of sugar! It looks so beautiful but it tastes very bland. It's not sweet enough. The ginger is quite potent. If I were to make it again I would decrease the ginger and add at least a cup of sugar.

Loved the ginger in this recipe! I think it tastes better after being refrigerated for a day.

I made this pie for a Christmas gathering. The pie was very good - altho the marshmallows on top were 'odd'. I ended up peeling the marshmallows off one of the pies and going back to the old stand-by.....real whipped cream..... MUCH BETTER!!!
I'll use the 'pie' recipe again - minus the marshmallows. ;)

I made this pie for Thanksgiving dinner and we found it delicious and easy to make! I love a spicy pie so I added cloves and nutmeg and the result was terrific. We didn't have any problems toasting the marshmallows, and putting them on the pie something the little kids could get help with. They were great, even better than whipped cream!
Overall this pie was a hit and a delicious twist on an old family favorite.

This recipe makes a great and yummy pie. I doubled the amount of pumpkin pie spice because i like mine with a little more flavor. I did find fresh ginger root at the store and i think it really added to the flavor. Only problem i had was with the marshmallow toasting, be very careful, i caught my pie on FIRE. If you follow the instructions in step 3 you probably will too. Don't place it so close to the broiler, 5 inches is too close and leave the door open so you can watch it and take it out before the marshmallows burn. The first time i followed the instructions and put the pie in the oven on broil and checked after 2 minutes to find my pie flaming, i yelled for my husband a firefighter who came and shut the oven and we turned it off. The fire went out and we took it outside scraped off the burnt marshmallows and the edge crust, we salvaged the pie. He advises if you catch something on fire the safest place is in the oven, never try to get it out and carry it outside, that's how lots of accidents can occur.

Wow this receipe is delicious!!! I made it for my guests for Thanksgiving 2008, and everyone ate their slice down to the last crumb, and asked for more. So lite and tasty. %0d%0a%0d%0aThe only thing I changed in the receipe was that I used two egg whites instead of 2 whole eggs to make it a low cholestrol version, and I used a small fresh pumpkin. Using fresh pumpkin is so easy, just cut it in half, clean it out the seeds, boil it, and scoop the meat out, and that's it. When the guests were leaving everyone asked for the receipe, which I made copies for them and gave it to them as they left. %0d%0a%0d%0aThis receipe will be used again and again at my house. I highly recommend this one!
