All-Butter Pie Crust
My bourbon maple pumpkin pie starts with the best, all-butter pie crust recipe! This recipe is my go-to for pies and tarts! Plus, it’s super easy to make! I have a separate video recipe for the pie crust so make sure to check it out! You can make the pie crust ahead of time, too! Just make sure to wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
To make the crust, place the ice cold, cubed butter into a food processor, along with flour and salt. Pulse the butter and flour together for about 1 minute, until fine crumbs form. Next, slowly pour in the cold water with the processor running. The dough will pull into a dough ball like magic! Allow the dough to chill before rolling and using!
Blind Baking the Crust
It’s important to blind bake your pie crust before filling it with the pumpkin filling! To do this step, first have the crust in your pie pan ready to go. Line the inside of the pie gently with parchment paper, then fill the pie with pie weights or dried beans. The pie weights that I have even come in a plastic container for storage (affiliate link)!!
Blind bake the crust for 10 minutes at 425F, then remove it from the oven and remove the pie weights carefully! The crust is now ready to be filled!
Bourbon Maple Pumpkin Filling
You’re going to love the flavors of this bourbon maple pumpkin pie filling! The maple syrup and the bourbon both add a hint of something special! To make this pie filling, I start with the classic combination of pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, sugar, eggs, spices and cornstarch. Next, I add in a bit of real maple syrup and some bourbon. Pour this filling into the prebaked pie crust.
If you’re making this pie for a family Thanksgiving, don’t worry about the alcohol! It will evaporate and break down as the pie bakes.
Baking the Pumpkin Pie
This pie will fill your entire home with an incredible aroma while it bakes!
This pie will fill your entire home with an incredible aroma while it bakes! Once you have the pie filled, it’s time for baking! Reduce the oven temperature from 425F down to 350F and bake the pie for 50 to 60 minutes, until the top is set. As the pumpkin pie bakes, the filling is going to puff up a bit and then settle back down once the pie is out of the oven. The center should be almost set when ready, with just a slight wobble.
Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool for about an hour at room temperature, before placing it into the refrigerator to chill for a few hours.
Maple Whipped Cream
The best way to enjoy this bourbon maple pumpkin pie is with a generous amount of maple whipped cream! This whipped cream tastes so delicious, all thanks to the maple extract that I add to it (affiliate link)! The fluffy cream is the perfect complement to the rich pumpkin pie and buttery crust!
