A Better Pumpkin Pie

I disagree with this statement in the current issue of Cooks Illustrated:

The best thing about pumpkin pie is that you only have to eat it once a year.

I could eat pumpkin pie year-round. But even so I welcome the magazine's article suggesting three ways to add some zing to pumpkin pie. Here they are:

1) Substitute sweet potato puree for part of the pumpkin puree

2) Replace the ground ginger with freshly gated ginger

3) Substitute maple syrup for a portion of the sugar

Each of these ideas sounds good to me.
