The taste is fantastic. Getting it to set in the center, though, is tricky. I made this twice - the first time it did not set in the middle at all. The second time it was still really soft in the middle, even though I boiled the syrup, sugar, and butter together for 30 sec to thicken before combining with the other ingredients. Perhaps I could try boiling for a minute to see if that'll help.
Absolutely wonderful, excellent recipe! And we are picky about pecan pie at my house. Nice to find a recipe that tastes like pecan pie but doesn't use corn syrup. I used Grade B maple syrup (Whole Foods carries it) and Basic Pie Crust I. Only change I made was to use pecan halves and arrange in circles on top cause I think it looks nice. Served on Thanksgiving to rave reviews. Didn't try the freezing directions but appreciate the great idea. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
