I made this again recently. Great flavour. It was worth making my own pastry for this. I followed the recipe, but I was careful at step 6, as things can go wrong here. It also took longer to bake in my oven. Thanks for posting :)

Not sure what happened, maybe it was me but I followed the directions to a tee but the maple filling although tasty was very runny even after chilling overnight. Cut one slice and the whole pie was ruined. The two egg whites didn't seem to make enough meringue to cover the pie. In all I was pretty disappointed, it was a waste of a cup of pure maple syrup. Sorry. :(

This was a delicious pie! I ended up adding the egg mixture to the hot maple liquid (rather than the other way around) using a whisk and didn't have any problems with lumps that I had to strain it. I also added 1/2 cup of roughly chopped pecans to the mix for a bit of crunch. Thank you for a great recipe!
