Ok, so now that I got off topic just a bit let’s get back to this amazing homemade maple pumpkin pie!
Homemade pumpkin pie with maple syrup
If you have never made a homemade pumpkin pie, do not be afraid of making them. There is not much more effort needed then when you toss a frozen pumpkin pie in the oven. A few extra minutes of work, but that extra work is so worth the amazing flavor
If you are looking for a sugar free pumpkin pie, this maple pumpkin pie filling is a great one. Instead of using sugar to sweeten the pumpkin pie it uses real maple syrup. It is VERY important to use real maple syrup and not the imitation maple syrup when you are making this maple pumpkin pie.
Homemade or packaged pie crust?
When you are making this maple pumpkin pie you can use either homemade pie crust or a prepared pie crust. I personally like homemade pie crust when I am making pies.
If you are wanting to lower the sugar some more, then you will want to use your favorite sugar free pie crust however I love a flaky homemade pie crust with all of my pies.
Homemade pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin puree?
For this maple pumpkin pie recipe, you can use canned pumpkin puree or homemade pumpkin pie. I do prefer using homemade, however if you are running short on time the canned stuff will work just fine!
What do you serve with pumpkin pie?
You can serve this pie all by itself. It tastes amazing! If you are wanting to fancy it up, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream!
How to Store Pumpkin Pie
If you are not going to serve your pie right away then after it has cooled completely store your pie in the fridge.
Once baked this homemade pie can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Can you freeze pumpkin pie?
This homemade pie can be frozen. You will loose a bit of the texture when you defrost the pie however you will not lose any of the flavor. To freeze this homemade pie I recommend using a metal pie tin, the pie will freeze quicker in a metal pie tin compared to a glass pie pan.
Once the pie has been baked, cool the pie completely. Next wrap the pie with several layers of plastic wrap and make sure it is sealed tightly. Then wrap the pile completely with one layer of tin foil. Place your pie in the freezer on a level shelf to freeze completely.
How long will pie last in the freezer?
Once this pie is frozen it will keep in the freezer for thirty days.
How to thaw a frozen homemade pie
Remove the frozen pie from the freezer and place in the fridge 12 hours before you plan to enjoy eating the pie. Within 12 hours the homemade pie will be completely defrosted and ready to enjoy.
Why did my pumpkin pie crack?
If you find a crack in your pie that means it is overcooked. However that doesn’t mean you ruined the pie! The pie will still taste amazing! It takes a few times baking a pumpkin pie to get the baking times just right and to learn when to pull it out of the oven at the perfect time.
How to fix a Cracked Pumpkin Pie
If you end up with a crack on the top just spread some whip cream on the top and dust with a little cinnamon and act like the crack isn’t even there!
I have over baked a pumpkin pie more times then I want to admit, due to baking all of my Thanksgiving desserts at the same time as the kids running around the house. It still tastes great, it just has a crack in it.
