Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the pre-made pie crust in a 9-inch pie dish.

In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree, heavy cream, eggs, sugar, spices, salt, and maple syrup until smooth.

Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 40 minutes.

While the pie bakes, mix the pecans, sugar, and butter until crumbly.

Let cool before serving. Enjoy the blend of rich pumpkin and sweet, crunchy pecan layers!

Ingredients:

6 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (preferably Granny Smith)

3/4 cup sugar

2 tbsp all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup caramel sauce

1 pre-made pie crust

Crumble Topping:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cold butter, cubed

Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust.

For the topping, combine flour, brown sugar, and butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the pie filling.

Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the crumb topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

Cool slightly before drizzling with extra caramel sauce. Serve warm for a melt-in-your-mouth treat!

Ingredients:

1 cup white sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup butter

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup chopped pecans

1 pre-made pie crust
