1. Prepare pie pastry according to your favorite recipe. Roll the pastry out and line a 10-inch pie plate. Trim and flute the edges. (Or purchase a frozen pie shell.)
2. Combine pumpkin, melted butter, sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, egg yolks, milk and ¼ cup whipping cream in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly.
3. Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Fold them into the pumpkin mixture. Pour into pie shell and bake in a preheated 350-degree oven about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Refrigerate pie until serving, and keep leftover pie refrigerated.
