10 ingredients? I don't think so. Pie shell, one large can of pumpkin, 3 eggs, one can of evaporated milk, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. 8 ingredients. Been making this for 45 years and my mom and grandma for 60 years before that.

Texture was perfect! I've been making pumpkin pies for 40 years and this one had the absolute best texture ever. It wasn't runny and cooked in the exact time it was supposed to. I used a whole 15 oz. can of pumpkin and 12 oz. can of evaporated milk and doubled everything else except the cinnamon. This made 2 deep-dish pies instead of one, and nothing was wasted. I didn't care too much for the maple flavoring, though -- I guess I prefer the traditional spices.

The name isn't lying. It really is easy. I love the addition of maple to the pumpkin pie. It's absolutely delicious! Do not mistake the maple syrup for pancake syrup. You want 100% real maple syrup.

While the recipe was very good as written, I've made some changes to get perfect for us: replaced maple syrup with molasses, decreased cinnamon to 1/2 tsp, and eliminated the maple flavoring.

This recipe was a good one! I gave it a 4 star because it was a good base (starter) pie. Next time I make it I wont be using ANY of the maple ingredients as it was too strong a flavor for my tastes. Also, all that liquid left the pie runny and I had to leave it in the oven for 40 minutes longer (90 minutes total). Not that it was a big deal, just unexpected.. But other than that, I recommend giving it a shot!
