READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl.
  • Rub the fats into it until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  • Add just enough cold water to mix to a dough that leaves the bowl clean. Leave the pastry to rest in a polythene bag in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.
  • Turn the oven to 400°F, whilst the oven is heating up toast the pecans for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Roll the pastry out and place in a pie dish that has been dusted with cornflour.
  • Blind bake for 10 minutes.
  • Melt the butter and mix together with the maple syrup, sugar, eggs, chocolate chips, orange juice and rind.
  • Fold in the pecans, you can chop them in half if desired.
  • Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 1 hour. The pie is ready if it does not wobble at the outer edges when you twist the dish.
