Pumpkin Maple Pie

I like pumpkin pie, but I have never been able to eat very much of it because most of the pumpkin pies I’ve encountered over the years have been entirely too sweet. This year I decided to try to make my own, and I was most pleased with the results. I had TWO pieces over the course of the evening, and I could’ve eaten more! I might try reducing the ginger a little next time. I liked it, but then I like ginger more than a lot of people.

This is a very slight modified version of this recipe.
