The Ingredients

Every wonderful recipe starts with the right ingredients, which is why you need to stock up before you make this pie. For this pie, you’re going to need one 9-inch pie crust that’s already prepared (but find one that’s not yet baked). In addition, the recipe calls for one cup of heavy whipping cream, four eggs, 2/3 cup of pure maple syrup, 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree (you can either purchase this at the store or make your own – it’s not hard if you decide on homemade), one teaspoon of sea salt, two teaspoons of pure vanilla extract of the seeds of one vanilla bean, one tablespoon of pumpkin spice blend, and 1/2 cup of sweetened whipped cream. You’ll use that last one as a garnish to top off your delicious pie.

The Instructions

Before you do anything else, remember to preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then whisk together the creams and eggs until they are blended well. Add in the pumpkin and maple syrup and continue to whisk. After you do that, you’ll be ready to fill your crust. Once you do, you can then put your pie into the oven. When your pie is cooking, you should check it about once every 30 minutes to see if it’s browning properly. It should be ready in about an hour. Once it looks done and you’ve checked that the crust has started to brown, take it out of the oven. Let it cool on a cooling rack, and it will be ready to eat. If you’re storing it, make sure to wrap it up and put it in the fridge, so it lasts longer.

Whether you’re planning on sharing this pie with family members and friends or keeping it all for yourself, it should give you a little taste of the season. And what’s more fun than spending some time in the kitchen? Try this recipe today.
