Maple Pecan Pie
Maple Pecan Pie is so, so very rich. This scrumptious Pecan Pie is made with maple syrup instead of corn syrup. It’s a thousand times better! It’s so decadent. If you want a drool worthy dessert to serve at your Christmas table, this is it!
I love Pecan Pie although I didn’t grow up eating them. My mom never made them. I think because pecans may have been too expensive at the time. I didn’t eat my first Pecan Pie until I was in my early twenties. I fell in love at first bite! An elderly lady at our church used to make them regularly. Oh, my.
We went to a college age game night a couple of months ago. I brought a couple of Caramel Pecan Pies that went wild! I work with the college age students and young adults at our church. We serve dinner every Sunday night at the director’s house. About once every two months or so we change things up and have a game night. Another care group in our church helps sponsor the night by providing food.
One of the young guys from that care group was in the kitchen helping get everything ready. He told me about his wife’s grandma making Pecan Pie with Maple Syrup. I decided I had to give it a go. So I started with my regular Pecan Pie recipe. Wow, it was so rich but everyone loved this Maple Pecan Pie.
I brought it to one of the College Group’s Sunday night dinners a couple of weeks later. I made a large Taco Salad and some Guacamole to go along with it. Everyone kept digging in to everything. I think after everyone had a slab of Maple Pecan Pie, the whole group has gone from being merely Chocolate Chip Cookie eaters to homemade pie lovers. 🙂
Maple Pecan Pie is a splendid dessert for Christmas. But I will warn you. This pie is really rich. You may have to cut it in smaller pieces to serve. Plus, everyone will want a piece, won’t they? Yes, they will. 🙂
Maple Pecan Pie is spectacular!

Unroll pie crust and fit into pie plate.
Fit crust into pie plate then crimp edges. Set aside.
Add eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla.
Add real maple syrup (NOT corn syrup).
Whisk to combine.
Pour filling ingredients into prepared pie shell.
Sprinkle pecan halves over top.
Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until set. My pie took one hour and 20 minutes to cook completely.
Cool pie before cutting into serving pieces.
