Love this pie. It's simple and so delicious. Everyone loves it. I know it's supposed to be shallow but I wanted a little more oomph so I increased all the ingredients by 50%. It came out perfectly, as always. It's delightful warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

We make our own maple syrup so it was fun to try making it into a pie. This was very very sweet, so the kids loved it! It was a little more dense than I was expecting, but it did set up really well and was a sweet change from my usual pies! Thanks!

This was quite yummy! So so sweet though so we could only eat tiny servings at a time. Mine didn't set the best but it was the first pie I've made so I'm pretty pleased.
