Maple Pumpkin Pie

Set oven to 350 degrees

Notes

Drizzle a little syrup swirl on top of the pie before baking and it shows up lightly on top of the pie, which is pretty.

Use a maple leaf or a paper snowflake and dust the top with cinnamon and nutmeg (see pictured below).

I use a graham cracker crust for my pumpkin pies. But you can choose pastry, of course. I make my crust from scratch and so you can see in my pictures that I use the crumbs to top the whipped cream.

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 3/4 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. ground ginger
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/8 t. ground cloves

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs, pumpkin, cream, syrup and spices.
  2. Pour into crust.
  3. Bake till center is set, about 60-70 minutes.
  4. Cool to room temperature before serving.
  5. Serve with whipping cream or fat free cool whip topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.
