I didn't taste maple, but I did taste a very gentle sweetness, perfectly balanced with pumpkin and spkce. I did make the adjustment someone else did--1 cup maple syrup and 1/3 cup brown sugar. And I only had canned pumpkin, so that's what I used. Evaporated milk, as well. This is my favorite pumpkin pie recipe to date! If it's this good with cans, think how good it will be with fresh ingredients!
***edited 11/24/2011 I made it in a bigger pan, 1-1/2 recipe, using 1-1/4 c maple syrup and not even 1/2 c brown sugar, rounded up to 5 eggs and used heavy cream and fresh pumpkin. Eyes lit up with the first bite! Definitely my best ever pumpkin pie!
