This pie was almost inedible which was very surprising to me. We love tahini (one of our favorite recipes is a tahini chocolate chip cookie) and love pumpkin pie. The texture was okay but the filling really just tasted awful and left a bad aftertaste. It was very bland and not nearly enough flavor or spices. It literally tasted like you mixed pumpkin and tahini in a bowl and ate it straight. The crust was equally bland and bad, the cocoa powder and sugar did nothing for it. Even our guests didn't like it. The options were to throw this away or try to scoop out the filling, add spices, and turn it into a tahini pumpkin date shake. Even this barely masked the bad taste but at least the entire dish didn't go to waste.

Loved the richness and bitterness of tahini with the pumpkin. It was a great flavor pair, although the chocolate flavor in the form of cocoa powder doesn’t really come though. Maybe if the crust was coated with a thin layer of melted chocolate before baking there would be more of a chocolate presence. Everyone seemed to like it and it was so easy to make!

Just didn't quite wow me. The tahini didn't have enough ginger and spice to compete with so it came out a little one note.

I just can't get through this recipe for pumpkin & tahini pie--there are so many typos. There are two in paragraph 2; one in paragraph 3; and three egregious ones in paragraph 4 (access dough?! Really? The same incorrect word used twice?!). Terribly written. I'm afraid to try the recipe for fear that it tastes as bad as the article reads.

Trevor.... are you here to edit or bake? Seriously. If you’re here to edit, I can give you my 11 year olds school paper to grade while I bake this pumpkin pie. Seriously, get a life.
