    Claire is a very good host. The videos are fun and informative but the process is never intimidating when she explains it.
    Also, thank you for posting so many Thanksgiving prep ideas!

    I made this recipe using a chocolate graham cracker crust (pre-made) to cut down on the work load/time and it turned out great. I actually made two pies, the first one I mixed by hand and it had an interesting gritty texture from the canned pumpkin. The second pie I mixed with an electric mixer and the consistency was much smoother. I also added more bourbon to the second pie and the flavor was better. Great recipe!

    For me the reason I love watching Claire is that she is so genuine. She constantly says that what she made is "really good" and in the gourmet chef series she is constantly burned out and I love how she reacts by having an existential crisis and still always delivers.

    If you ever decide to revisit this recipe, I've found that Kenji's writing on sweetening pumpkin puree by heating sous vide at 155F helps to enhance the pumpkin flavor of homemade puree.

  • sonicstep
    sonicstep 22 days ago

    I am finding this way too difficult to follow. The pastry making was skipped completely. Then those beads were poured in at 1:47 without any explanation.
    This is not for beginners norbintermediates. It is for those who know how to do and just want ideas on how to improve or do somewhat differently what they already know how to do.

  • Kathryn Olson
    Kathryn Olson 28 days ago

    So how come you can't use the broiler for this instead of a torch? I know it says it'll melt the filling, but it's a baked custard just like creme brulee which you can do under the broiler.....I'm confused

  • Michael Scott
    Michael Scott 28 days ago

    Wonderful, but one small complaint: the cooking tips in the white boxes appear and disappear too quickly to read or pause the video in time after noticing them. If they could last about a second or two longer, it would be much easier. But yeah, great job on the pie.

    Now, I'm sure her hands are clean, but seeing the hole her nail made while crimping the pie crust made me gag a little... :( Otherwise a beautiful video as always Claire :)

  • Paul Arthur Myers
    Paul Arthur Myers 29 days ago

    This is one of my favorite videos from BA or from Claire. This pie seems delicious!
    I know this is a dangerous thought, but my mother is dairy-free. Otherwise, I think she would love this pie. I have never really baked with dairy substitutes and I’m worried about mouthfeel and stability. Do you or any commenters have dairy-free ideas to make this?

    Great pie making video with clear instruction, thanks.
    My pie crust dough has crack on its edge, which becomes a bit hard, too. What causes this and how to fix it?
    Many thanks.

  • Quinn LaDuke

    Anyone else having issues with the pie crust? Mine isn’t turning out flaky and tastes more like the chocolate cookie part of an ice cream sandwich. Help!

    • Jess
      Jess Month ago

      If it's not flaky you may be having issues with keeping the butter cold. Use a food processor or blender to mix very cold butter (straight out of the fridge) and flour (with cocoa powder if desired) and use ice water to help bind it. Take it out and then knead together as fast as possible, put in the fridge for at least an hour or two before using. Put in the pie tray and then refrigerate again before baking. #1 goal keep the butter cold!

    I’d love more episodes like this where you take a classic dish we all love and show how to dress it up a little. Honestly I’d love a cook off where the two chefs try and remake a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or something simple like that.
