Mixed-Nut Maple Pumpkin Pie
Ingredients
  • 1  prepared pie crust
  • 2  eggs
  • 1 15  ounce can  pumpkin
  • 1/4  cup  half-and-half, light cream, or milk
  • 1/4  teaspoon  maple extract
  • 3/4  cup  sugar
  • 1  tablespoon  all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground allspice
  • 1 1/2  cups  mixed nuts (such as pecan halves, cashew halves, and/or pine nuts)
  • 1  tablespoon  butter, melted
  • 1/4  cup  pure maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Place prepared pie crust in pie plate. In a large bowl, beat eggs with a fork. Stir in pumpkin, half-and-half, and maple extract. Stir in sugar, flour, lemon peel, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Pour pumpkin mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. Cover edge of the pie with foil to prevent overbrowning. Bake for 35 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together nuts and butter. Remove foil from pie. Sprinkle nuts over the top of the pie, leaving about a 1-inch border around the edge.

3. Bake about 10 minutes more or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean (push nuts to the side to check doneness, then push nuts back into place). Cool on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate within 2 hours. Drizzle with maple syrup just before serving.
