Maple Pumpkin Pie

Tired of traditional pumpkin pie? The maple syrup in this special pie provides a subtle but terrific enhancer. —Lisa Varner, El Paso, Texas
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour + chilling
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dough for single-crust pie
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Chopped pecans, optional


  • Preheat oven to 425°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
  • In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients; beat until smooth. Pour into crust. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°. Bake 45-50 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and top of pie is set (cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary). Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate overnight or until set.
  • In a small bowl, beat the cream, confectioners' sugar, syrup and pumpkin pie spice until stiff peaks form. Pipe or dollop onto pie. Sprinkle with pecans if desired.
Editor's Note
Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.

    I made two pies for Thanksgiving, and all of them came from this site. Of the 7 pies at this year's gathering, mine were the only ones that were completely gone. This was one of them. The pumpkin with the maple were delicious, and we got many compliments. It was very easy to make, and we had most of the ingredients already. I think I only had to buy the pumpkin. Great pie.
