Preheat the oven to 350°F. Boil a tea pot full of water and set it aside once boiling. Place one paper towel on the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch glass casserole dish. Place six ramekins on top of the paper towel.
Mix together the pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt and vanilla.
Fill each of the ramekins with the pumpkin pie filling. Remove one of the filled ramekins from the baking dish.
Place the baking dish containing the ramekins in the middle of the oven.
Pour the hot water slowly into the glass baking dish half way up the sides of the ramekins being careful not to splash hot water onto the pie filling.
Replace the missing ramekin back into the pan and close the oven door.
Bake for 35 minutes then remove the dish from the oven and allow the ramekins to cool for about 20 minutes on a wire rack.
Whip together the maple syrup, bourbon and whipping cream using your stand or hand mixer for 4 to 5 minutes or until soft peaks form.
Serve immediately or refrigerate. Serve a dollop on top of each ramekin.
