Old-New Fashioned Pecan Pie

Ingredients Needed:

  • Maple Syrup
  • Sea Salt
  • Packed Light-Brown Sugar
  • White Granulated Sugar
  • Three Large Eggs
  • Chopped Pecans
  • Pecan Halves
  • Real Vanilla Extract
  • Pie Crust
  • Unsalted Butter
  • All-Purpose Flour

What To Do:

Have your pie crust rolled out and ready in the desired pie pan, I like to use glass pie pans for looks really. Then lather the crust with melted butter, all over. Remember to preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Now, sit to the side! Next, in a small saucepan, you will melt 3/4 stick of unsalted butter on medium heat. Once melted, add 1/2 cup of light brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of white granulated sugar and mix. Then add three-quarters of maple syrup, I prefer Michele’s Gourmet Butter Pecan Syrup as it is so rich in flavor and makes the pie tastier than corn syrup. Now you will pour this mixture into a mixing bowl and set it aside to cool. Next, you will beat three large eggs in a small bowl for approximately 1 minute and 30 seconds. Once time is up, sit the bowl of eggs down and go back to the mixing bowl and add a few pinches of salt, I prefer sea salt, and two tablespoons of the flour, mix. Then add 9 drops of real vanilla extract into the bowl along with 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, and 1 cup of pecan halves as well as the beaten eggs, and mix once more. Once all is mixed, it is then ready to pour into a pie pan on top of the buttery crust. Place in the oven, and let it cook for 45-51 minutes. Serve with whip cream, ice cream, or alone!
