A fresh tasting, moist, creamy and wonderfully seasoned pie. The choice and amount of spices adds flavor without overpowering the pumpkin or changing it's color to brown. The maple flavor was very subtle and ? overpowered by the amount of sugar. It's hard for me to tell because my taste buds are overly sensitive to sugar. You might try an extra tbls of maple syrup. For my taste buds, I will add the syrup but reduce the amount of sugar. I just can't get over the fresh taste and fresh look of this beautifully spiced pie. Thanks Nurse Di, it's my #1 favorite.
