Directions

  1. Sift together flour, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon sugar into mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles cornmeal. Combine water, vinegar and 1 egg; add liquid one tablespoon at a time, sprinkling over flour mixture and tossing with a fork to form soft dough. Shape into three discs. Wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 3 to 24 hours. Extra pastry may be frozen for later use.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Line a 9 inch pie plate with pastry. Brush inside of unbaked pie shell with slightly beaten egg white.
  4. Mix 3/4 cup sugar, syrups, vanilla and salt with 4 beaten eggs until blended. Stir in pecans and melted butter. Pour filling into pie shell.
  5. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until center is set. Remove from oven and brush hot pie top with maple syrup. Cool and store in refrigerator.

One of the best pie recipes I've tried. I chose to brush the syrup on generously after the pie came from the oven. It gets even better after resting in the fridge for a day.

a nice pie - not my favorite pecan pie recipe, however. I prefer a more traditional pie, perhaps. Easy to make, though, and a hit with the family. Lots and lots and lots of syrup goes into this one, folks, so forget the diet. I used a 10" graham cracker pie crust, and the filling fit perfectly. I'd recommend 10" over 9" if you choose to not make your own crust to avoid spillage. The maple flavor did not overpower the rest of the pie's ingredients and added a different spin on the standard pecan pie recipe.

I don't make pie crusts, but this filling is the best pecan pie filling I or my family has ever tasted. It has become a family tradition at the holidays!

I used pre-made pie shells and skipped to the pie-making section. The insides seemed to make 1.5 pies, so I put enough into one pie, going heavier on the pecans. Then, with the remaining syrupy stuff, I made another pie, adding almost another 3/4 cup of chopped pecans. Both pies came out beautifully!

I made this pie for my husband and he loved it. I didn't think the kids would like it because of the pecans--I was wrong. They wanted a second piece!

add a scoup of maple pecan ice cream to warm pie and it will be a heavenly experience.

This is fabulous. I made this before Thanksgiving as a test run. I make it according to the written recipe and double it. I use deep dish pie crusts (pre-made). It goes like wildfire. My first successful pecan pie recipe and it is a keeper.

I loved the flavor of this pie, but it ended up being a little too much liquid in the center. Maybe I didn't bake it long enough.
