Better Than Pumpkin Pie (Gluten-free Pumpkin Maple-Pecan Pie)

It's not Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie, but my daughter and I are both trying to cut down on carbs, so we wondered if it is possible to make a pumpkin pie (which, admittedly has to have a fair amount of sugar in it) without the crust. I thought I would make it in custard cups, but I googled "pumpkin pie with no crust," and there is an official Libby's pumpkin recipe for just that. Would it work? Oh what's the worst that can happen...we have to scoop it up?

Well it worked better than I expected--a perfect pumpkin pie without the soggy, slightly bitter taste of pie crust.
