Praline Pumpkin Pie with Maple Rum Sauce

I use Libby's Perfect Pumpkin Pie recipe as the basis of my pumpkin pie and I have for years.

After all, if it's good enough for Martha Stewart, it's good enough for me too.

Yes, it's true! That's the pumpkin pie recipe Martha recommends.

Really though, I know myself well enough to know that I am not about to roast a pumpkin and go through all that mess to make a pumpkin pie, and frankly Libby's 100% pure pumpkin product and Perfect Pumpkin Pie recipe have always provided a consistently great pumpkin pie, so why try any other?

Believe it or not, folks who comment on Facebook that they had used a recipe for anything for years and it's always perfect but "I might just try this one," I always respond - why would you? You know the old saying... if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

So as to Libby's pie, don't go messing with it, you hear?! It's absolutely perfect as it is, I promise!

I do say, however, carry your own unique signature in the way that you top it, and in the sauces you can make, like this maple rum sauce ... this is where you can make your own signature pumpkin pie!

I happen to like pumpkin pie with a praline topping, but you can omit that altogether if you like and serve it unaltered - but for a dollop of whipped cream, which, frankly, is almost required!
