Although the fall means an end to summer, there is always something about the crisp fresh air of fall that brings a warm reminder of cozy sweaters, wood burning fires, and of course pumpkin flavored beverages and foods. This pumpkin pie recipe I made over the Thanksgiving long weekend is definitely a crowd pleaser. The maple syrup sweetening base contributes to the pie's rich texture and flavorful filling. If you are asked to a dinner party this fall and you are looking for something to bring (other than wine) as a thank you to the host - this is it!
