I also use my homemade pumpkin pie spice recipe-https://www.iftheovenmittfits.com/2018/09/30/homemade-pumpkin-pie-spice/


2 cups pure pumpkin puree

2 eggs

1 egg white (reserve yolk to mix with 1 tbsp milk or cream, and brush on crust, and crust cut outs for the top)

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp homemade pumpkin pie spice, recipe here-https://www.iftheovenmittfits.com/2018/09/30/homemade-pumpkin-pie-spice/

1 tbsp molasses

1 tsp pure vanilla extract


Homemade Maple Whipped Cream


2 cups heavy cream

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract



  1. Line pie plate with rolled out pie crust. Trim, and crimp edges. Chill.
  2. In a medium bowl, add pumpkin puree, eggs and egg white. Whisk. With the leftover yolk, mix with 1 tbsp cream or milk and whisk. Set aside.
  3. Add cream and whisk. Add maple syrup, brown sugar, flour, spices, molasses and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Take lined pie plate out of the fridge. Brush the whole crust with the reserved yolk/milk mixture.
  5. Pour the filling in. Put pie plate on baking sheet and place in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Reduce temperature to 350, and bake for around 40 more minutes, until there is a slight jiggle in the middle of the pie when you gently shake it.
  7. Cool to room temperature.
  8. While pie is cooling, take some of the other half of the pie crust dough, cut out decorations and place on baking sheet lined with parchment.
  9. Brush cut outs with egg yolk/milk mixture, and sprinkle with course sugar. Bake at 425 for around 12-15 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  10. Place the cutouts on top of the pie, however you like.
  11. Wrap pie in plastic wrap well, and chill for a few hours, or better, overnight.
  12. To serve, cut into slices, and serve with the homemade maple whipped cream on top! Enjoy!

For maple whipped cream:

  1. Place cream, maple syrup and vanilla in a bowl. Whisk, using an electric mixer, until stiff peaks form. Serve a dollop on top of each slice of pie! Enjoy!
