TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • Whipped cream

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the first 10 ingredients until smooth. Divide pastry in half so that one portion is slightly larger than the other. Roll out larger portion to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges. Pour filling into crust.
  • 2. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 40-45 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove foil. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 3. Roll remaining pastry to 1/8-in. thickness; cut into desired shapes. Place cutouts on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Arrange cutouts over pie. Garnish servings with whipped cream. Yield: 8 servings.
