I feel bad giving this 3 stars because it has the potential to be the best pumpkin pie ever. But, as the recipe is written, it's just too sweet. Next time I make it, I will reduce the brown sugar to 1/3 cup. I made this the night before Thanksgiving after reading all of the rave reviews; I had some extra filling left over, so I baked it in a pyrex dish. After it cooled and I tasted it, I realized it was waaaay to sweet to serve and wound up making another pie (using a different recipe) the next morning. On the up side, the mix of spices is wonderful; combined with the maple syrup, this is definitely not your average pumpkin pie. Just cut back on the sugar unless you like things very very sweet.
