Maple Pumpkin Pie

This pumpkin pie is kissed with a bit of maple flavor to heighten the warm sweet notes. Such a small change makes a big difference!

        I know pumpkin pie is usually reserved for Thanksgiving, but I’m not sure why. If you like it, have it any time! I enjoy pumpkin pie baked oatmeal all fall and winter, so why not the pie too?

      You may have noticed I also have a little thing for maple. I just love the warm sweet notes it adds to things like sweet potato casserole, roasted vegetables and whipped cream!

    It just makes it feel extra special.  Of course there is the buttercream, baked beans, the oatmeal and granola as well.

      So of course adding a bit of maple flavor to pumpkin pie seemed like a natural progression. I would love to work on a way to work on a way to use the syrup as a sweetener.

    But Thanksgiving isn’t the best time to experiment, especially when there are so many other things to be done.

      That might make a fun winter project one of these years. I just need to talk my husband into liking pumpkin pie first.

   New recipes mean multiple trials and I am not a fan of waste. And I’m not sure how many pies I should eat. My poor jeans would eventually stage a mutiny!

      So in the meantime I added a bit of maple extract to a classic pie recipe and the results were scrumptious. Of course I used the real deal maple in the whipped cream. On second thought, I think I’d be ok eating all those trial pies!

     Do you ever eat pumpkin pie besides on Thanksgiving? Is there anything else you only enjoy once a year?

If this pie sounds good, you may like baby sweet potato cakes with sticky caramel sauce. They’re so good and another great option for Thanksgiving!

I bet the addition of the maple makes this so scrumptious! I am a pumpkin pie fan, yet I have no idea why I only enjoy it one day a year! Thanks for sharing this with our Merry Monday party recently; I'll be featuring your pie at our upcoming party.

Hi Carlee, I really must pickup a bottle of maple syrup when I see it, I have no idea what it tastes like. I imagine pumpkin pie to be proper comfort food.

Pumpkin pie is definitely comfort food and maple syrup is like a warmer version of honey with a milder taste. It's really hard to describe, but super delicious!
