Not Too Sweet Pecan Pie

Recipe by juliet9190

This recipe uses maple syrup, not corn syrup!It's a version that's less sweet than other pecan pies. Please enjoy!! You can also make your own crust.

This pie was fantastic!! For anyone who loves Pecan Pie but can only eat a sliver because it's so darn sweet, THIS is the pie for you. Be forewarned, you may just want to eat the whole thing now!! I can't say anything negative about it or anything that needs to be changed....just perfect!!!
