Wow! This pie tasted great! I made this pie last weekend and it was my first time making or even tasting pumpkin pie. I made everything from scratch. Because it's impossible to find pumpkin puree where I live (Belgium), I was forced to make it myself. From one small pumpkin, I yielded about 4 cups of puree. I followed the recipe as written, but it took me a whole lot longer to make than 2Hrs and 30min. My pumpkin had to bake for approx. 2Hrs at 375, eventhough it was cubed. (It took me another 30min before I could bake the pumpkin, due to poor knife skills when handling a whole pumpkin.) For the pie crust I used the No Fail pie crust recipe III from this site. After baking I chilled it overnight, but I was too curious and ate a piece after 3Hrs of chilling. Let me tell you, it was worth the work. The taste is rich and incredible. The maple syrup really complements the pumpkin flavor. A comforting thought is that I now have some pumpkin puree left for the next pie. Thank you for such an amazing recipe!
