Homemade Maple Pumpkin Pie

Here’s a 5-inch pie that’s as cute as it is delicious. You’ll enjoy the creamy pumpkin-maple filling and golden, melt-in-your-mouth crust. It’s great with whipped cream. —Vivian Colwell, Goshen, Ohio.

    I make this all the time and I LOVE IT! Made it for Christmas in fact. I cut the prep time by using store bought pie crust sheets (sold in packages of two so I get four pies out of it). Just a hint of maple that makes ordinary pumpkin pie seem bland now. Try this recipe you'll love it.
