Costco Pumpkin Pie Why?

kjonyou | Nov 21, 201004:43 PM

What is the deal with Costco's Pumpkin pies?

I keep trying to make a really good pie from scratch including pie crust but I always get compared to Costco. Friends and in-laws swear it’s the best pie they have ever tasted. Crust certainly is not, but I give trying to win the home made argument. Anyone know what spices they put in their pies?

I can gather so far is they really bump up the spices, like double normal recipe. Yet one friend commented how theirs are not over spiced like other places. I am guessing processed food like that is probably out of a can and people are mostly responding to the flavor of the spices and not texture of the filling or the quality of the crust.

Any suggestion? Copycat recipes?
