“I liked this recipe because it was good and easy enough for a beginner. You can double or triple the spices to your taste, as suggested by other people who rated this recipe at epicurious.com. I Doubled this recipe to use a whole 29-oz. can of pumpkin, which made 2 pies. I didn't have molasses so I used good pancake syrup in place of it, and it turned out really well. I used the recipe for Flaky Pie Crust for the crust, but you can also use frozen pie crust. Adjust the baking time to your oven, the recipe calls for 50 minutes, but my oven took 55 minutes.
