Maple-Pecan Pumpkin Pie

With or without the pecan topping, this decadent-tasting pumpkin pie is sure to be a crowd pleaser during the holidays…or anytime you get a craving for a treat! (NOTE: The pecan topping, obviously, adds fat. You can make a truly fat-free pie by using a fat-free crust and skipping the topping.)
