Canadian Pumpkin Pie

Canadian Pumpkin Pie

I went a bit Pumpkin crazy this year - Pumpkin Pie with a twist - bourbon, maple syrup, pecans and fancy flour.

But I must say, the result is outstanding, I have managed to convert 2 pumpkin pie critics into pumpkin pie lovers

Recipe on my blog here

Pumpkin, bourbon, maple syrup and pecans -- sounds very good to me!  Thank you for posting the recipe.

this.  She loves pumpkin pie as it is and this might put her into anaphylactic shock!  I'm tempted to add some of my southern roots in there and sneak in a sweet potato too.  Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Love your pie - but wondered, do you have a recipe for an Americanized Hokey Pokey - my husband is a Kiwi and we miss hokey pokey!

Thank you for your comments, I am really pleased with the recipe, glad you like it too. 

Moya, isn't Hokey Pokey just golden syrup and baking soda? I too miss the proper NZ HokeyPokey

Yes.  sorry for the delayed response, ive been out sick. I can't get the golden syrup in Hawaii and order bu mail is simply too expensive.   Robin from NZ suggested using corn syrup or interestingly honeycomb. I think ill try both and see what happens!  


Thanks and aloha

This pie looks great I will make it thank you
" hokey pokey" looks like " sea foam" a candy I grew up with
We did the exact recipe process with baking soda but it was molasses, instead of golden syrup or other
Very yummy dental work killer
