Pumpkin pie is infused with a delicious maple flavor and topped with a leaf-lattice piecrust. You will need a 2-inch leaf cutter for this recipe. The leaf crust is very delicate, so take extra care when placing it on top of the pie.

    My lattice center cracked transitioning to top the pie. I followed everything exactly. The leaf crust edge didn't, so I am currently re-baking a lattice to then put on top. Hopefully this time (I made it even more thick) it won't crack. Other than that, it smells delicious and looks beautiful!

    I LOVED this one! As well as everyone else at Thanksgiving dinner! I will be making it again for Christmas but the only thing is I'm leaving off the top crust - though it was BEAUTIFUL it was actually too much crust for the maple pumpkin pie. The maple in the pie was perfect - it is important to use good quality 100% maple (not just syrup!).

    I made this pie last thanksgiving. I did not take the time to do the fancy crust, but since so many people in my family dislike traditional pumpkin pie, I thought the filling sounded good. I was right, even traditional pumpkin pie haters liked it. The maple syrup REALLY added a wonderful flavor to the pumpkin. I will be making this again this year too :)

    I used leaf cutters from Williams Sonoma. They worked just fine. The crust was great, however I was not so crazy about the filling. My guests used the word 'different' a lot to describe how it tasted, which is not good. I would make the crust again, however with a different filling.

    I adore this beautiful pie crust, and of course the pumpkin pie has always been my favorite. Now with so many of my family and friends diagnosed with celiac diease so there a meal or grain, even a nut flour that i can use to make this crust? I would love to try it out before the holidays? Thank you such for this site. Larva

    I love this idea, but I don't know where to find a leaf cutout like this.
