I am a total novice at baking and this was really easy and a lot less sweet than what you would buy in the store and that's a good thing for me. I found that if you stir in the flour slowly in the melted butter it will make the filling a lot less lumpy. I found a whisk worked better than a fork too :) Either way really good, I made two pies - one with Silk instead of milk we'll see how that goes but I'm sure it'll be fine and I made little "butter tart" things in muffin pans with it too since my fiance is obsessed with those. Thank you so much for putting this up!

Incredible! My husband said he could eat the whole pie. I can't believe how easy it is! The only thing I will change is I'm going to try increasing the filling by half. I used a regular pie pan and it still left about 1/2 inch unfilled. Another option would be to try it in a tart pan and I think I'll do that as well. Either way it is one incredible recipe. If you love maple sugar candy you'll love this pie!

This was one of the easiest pies I have ever made. It took about 7 minutes to make the filling and I baked my pie for around 30 minutes. Do not use a deep dish pie crust for this pie. It is thin and very rich. Yum-Yum!
