pumpkin pie

I am partial to pecan but I do love a good pumpkin too.  Fred requested the pumpkin as the second pie as apple is the first.  Pumpkin pie is pretty easy.  It is really about the spices but what I like about this one is the maple syrup.  Key topping:  whipped cream. 

Pie crust, not prebaked.  Just pour the pumpkin pie filling on top and bake at 475 for about 40 minutes. 

2 cups pumpkin puree

2 tbsp. flour

2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg and 1/2 tsp. ground ginger and 1/2 tsp. kosher salt

2 eggs

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 1/2 cups milk

Mix together the pumpkin puree, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt.  Add the eggs mix thoroughly.  Add the maple syrup and milk, beat again.  Pour this into the pie crust and bake.

    Happy Thanksgiving!I don’t know if it’s a compromise or the best of both worlds, but I sometimes bake a pie with a pumpkin bottom layer and a pecan top layer — works for me since I like the top of the pecan pie way better than the gooey part.
