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.
