Recipe by Diana Adcock

You wont find Corn Syrup in this recipe! Original recipe is from Cooks Country-as good as they are it still needed more pecans!

I really liked this recipe! I cut down the sugar by 1/2 cup and used dark brown sugar instead of light. Everyone loved it! Definitely a keeper. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place oven rack to the lowest position.
  3. Over medium heat stir together the maple syrup, sugar, cream and molasses stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes.
  5. Whisk in butter and salt.
  6. Whisk in egg yolks until well combined.
  7. Remove pie shell from fridge.
  8. Scatter pecans evenly and slowly pour in syrup mixture.
  9. Place pie in center of rack, reduce heat to 325 degrees.
  10. Bake until center jiggles slightly when gently shaken, between 45 and 60 minutes. You may need to make a foil tent if your oven runs hot-you dont want the nuts or crust to burn.

  12. Chill for at least 3 hours.
