Eat This!

No, not the soap! But... If you thought the candy corn and Amish Harvest soap trio donated by A Simply Enchanted Life made you hungry, wait until you see the amazing recipe she has created just for you! 

A Simply Enchanted Life is a blog/store combo created by Kristin Lail. She is an avid book reader, review writer, pie recipe maker, and crafter.  I met Kristin through a forum and she has a passion for creation - everything she makes, she uses in her own home, so you know it is of the most excellent quality and that she adds a dash of love to everything she does.

In her shop you will find jewelry, ribbon sculptures, hair accessories, soap, book marks, metal stamped pieces and more!

Kristin has a line of bath and body products are 100% Vegan an eco-friendly, which is a huge selling point for me because I don't use products tested on animals. ♥ She also has goat's milk soap and oatmeal and honey soap, which is very soothing!

Kristin created this delectable pie just for you guys, and my mouth waters just reading the recipe! It looks so scrumptious! 

Pumpkin Maple Pie with Walnut Crust

Crumb Crust/Topping
1c. hulled-cracked walnuts
2c. all-purpose flour
1/2c. brown sugar
3/4 c. chilled butter, cut into small pieces

Preheat the oven to 350F. To prepare crumb crust, spread nuts in a medium baking pan. Roast the nuts,stirring occasionally, until toasted, about 10 minutes. Remove nuts from the oven and allow to cool. Increase the oven temperature to 425F. In a food processor, process the nuts until finely ground. In a large bowl, mix together the nuts, flour, and sugar. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until coarse crumbs form. Using fingers, evenly press half of the crumb crust mixture into the bottom and sides of an 8-or 9-inch pie dish.

Pie Filling.
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 TSP maple flavoring
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 (14 oz) can of Sweetened Condensed milk
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin (you can use pureed fresh just as well)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. into crust.
Beat eggs at medium speed, adding in the maple flavoring and spices until well-blended. Add milk and pumpkin until smooth. Pour into crust and bake for 15 minutes.

2. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted 1 inch from crust comes out clean and the crust has browned.

If you try out this recipe, definitely come back and let me know how it you enjoyed it!

Are you a fan of pumpkin foods?


  1. Awesome feature! I'm not really a fan of pumpkin food because it almost always has cinnamon in it and I'm allergic to cinnamon.

    1. Haha, I have been drooling over this pie for days - need to learn how to bake!

  3. Molly, You can easily leave out the cinnamon with this. The Maple flavor is enough on it's own if you wanted to cut back on the cinnamon. I just happen to be a fan :)

    1. I love maple scented stuff. And maple flavored stuff. All time favorite treat is maple cotton candy!
