Pumpkin pie is my husband’s favorite, and I’m happy to say our healthier version made with maple syrup instead of sugar passed his taste test with flying colors! It’s an easy dessert that is fun to make in individual servings. This can be baked in ramekins, custard cups, half pint jars as featured in the photo or in a pie shell to make a delicious pumpkin pie!
Pumpkin Pie Custard
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups pumpkin puree
2/3 cup heavy cream or coconut milk
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2/3 cup maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Butter 6 ramekin or custard cups. In a medium mixing bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Mix in pumpkin, cream and syrup. Add spices and mix well.
Pour evenly into ramekins. Bake 40 minutes or until knife comes out clean. Cool and refrigerate. Top with whipped cream. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
