  • Roll out your pie crust, set it in the pie pan and crimp the edges. Put it in the refrigerator while you make the filling.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until light and fluffy. Add the pumpkin puree and mix well. Then add the sugars and mix until well incorporated. Add the maple syrup, allspice, cinnamon and cloves and mix. Gently stir in the milk and cream and mix until the filling is smooth and even.
