I think this title in itself is enough of an explanation to describe how insanely exquisite this pie tasted! To start, I should tell you that I have never made a pecan pie before this one. It
This pie is so simple to make and it will most certainly not disappoint! My parents wanted to jump through the computer when they saw this one, all the way in Vermont, to snag a piece of this pie! You must give this recipe a try, and I mean must only if you don’t have a nut allergy! Here is the lowdown on this treat so you too can enjoy it!
1 cup light corn syrup
2 tbps maple syrup (use real maple syrup, trust me!)
3 eggs, beaten
1 oz Bourbon
3 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 cup whole pecans
1 cup halved pecans
1/2 cup finely crushed pecans
1 pre-made refrigerated pie crust (homemade works too!)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Set your pie crust on the counter about 15 minutes before you need to prep your pie dish. When ready, place the crust in the pie dish and crimp edges. Place the halved pecans on the bottom of the pie crust, spread out evenly and set aside. In a large mixing bowl add your eggs, corn syrup, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla, melted butter, salt and finely crushed pecans. Mix together well with a spoon or spatula until mixed together well.
Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour or until done. Slice and serve!
