"I was in the middle of making a Chess pie and realized I was out of vanilla extract. I substituted some maple extract I had on hand, added some pecans and the result was delicious. This pie is decadent and rich, so fortunately a small slice will do. I think this would be a great pie for Thanksgiving. Top with sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping if desired." — DaveinDenver

Absolutely delicious! This will be a new favorite! We served it with vanilla bean ice cream. Glad you "accidently" discovered it.
Great! Mixed whipped topping with maple syrup to top the pie.
This is a great pie!! So easy, a no brainer! And taste wonderful!! I've made it several times and the result is always the same...it never last long :-D
This pie was fun and tasted even better than Pecan Pie. I like the top layer that melts in your mouth. I'll be making this for Thanksgiving instead of Pecan Pie. My husband loved it too.
Tried it, liked it,was all gone in a flash.This was a very good pie. Did not change anything.Did one wit pecans and one without.Great pie.
This pie was easy to prepare and was delicious. Defintely a keeper.
Very very rich! One thin slice was just enough to satisfy my sweet cravings. This type of pie didn't work out for the rest of the family. Even when taming it down with vanilla icecream, my husband couldn't get passed the potency of the eggy taste.
