ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Place oven rack to the lowest position.
  • Over medium heat stir together the maple syrup, sugar, cream and molasses stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Whisk in butter and salt.
  • Whisk in egg yolks until well combined.
  • Remove pie shell from fridge.
  • Scatter pecans evenly and slowly pour in syrup mixture.
  • Place pie in center of rack, reduce heat to 325 degrees.
  • 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.
  • Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Chill for at least 3 hours.

    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. :)

    You have to use a large pie crust because this is a LOT of pie! But oh, my, I love this pie!
