Maple Pecan Pie

Thursday, November 23, 2017
Pies are made as desserts during holiday season. My favorite are pumpkin pie, apple pie and pecan pie.

Ingredients:
  • 1½ cup - pecan halves toasted 
  • 3 - eggs ( or  ¾ cup applesauce  for egg-less pie)  
  • ⅔ cup - Golden brown sugar, tightly packed
  • ⅔ cup - Pure maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp - corn syrup
  • 6 tbsp - unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ tsp - salt.
  • 1 unbaked - 9 inch ready piecrust (or prepare one at home. Recipe here)
Method:
  1. Position the rack in the bottom third of the oven and preheat to 3500F
  2. Finely chop 1 cup of pecans.
  3. Whisk the eggs ( or applesauce), brown sugar, and salt until well blended in a medium bowl.
  4. Stir in both syrups and butter. 
  5. Add chopped pecans to the mixture.
  6. Pour the mixture into the unbaked piecrust. Spread the mixture evenly.
  7. Decorate rest of the pecan by arranging them on the top and press them slightly into the mixture.
  8. Bake until the crust is golden brown and the filling is set. About 35 minutes, depends on the oven.
  9. Cool completely.
Note: For regular pecan pie, just skip the maple syrup and instead of 3 tbsp, add 1 cup of corn syrup .

Pie may be made a day ahead. Store at cool room temperature.
