This was good, but way too sweet. The bourbon whipped cream was fantastic, though. The syrup/sugar/butter/vanilla combination will probably be really good to candy pecans with all on their own though!

This was really good. The maple made a nice change from the corn syrup I usually use, really nice texture as well. The bourbon whipped cream was a revelation. Really made a nice complement to the pie. The only problem I had was with the directions for adding the egg to the syrup. It specifically calls for you to add it while the syrup is hot. I very slowly added a bit of egg and it immediately cooked. I then tried adding a little of the syrup to the egg and that worked a bit better but by the end I had to strain the syrup mixture for any partially cooked egg bits. The final result did not taste eggy in the least however and was a beautiful pie that was loved by all. Thanks!
