I made this a few days ago. I was so excited to make this from reading all the reviews. I was craving pecans and thought this recipe would be good. I did exactly as written but when it came to baking, it wasn't so great. I put the oven to 350 degrees. I think it cooked pretty fast and 20 minutes is too long. I think the oven should be set to 320 degrees. When I checked at 20 minutes the edges were burnt. I had to take it out quickly and I poured the egg batter and lowered the temperature. It was good when it was warm but once it was cold it became hard like a rock. I ate the top part and threw out the shortbread part. I do want to try it again, it can be chewy but the instructions are not right. And the maple flavor I didnt care much for. Maybe cinnamon flavor would be better or honey flavor. I will add honey instead of maple syrup and maybe a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.
So my advice heat the oven at 320 degrees, Put it in the oven for 15 minutes then pour the egg batter and put back in oven for 5 minutes more. And cut it right after you take it out. I will try it again. Hopefully I should get it right this time.
