DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).
  • Crust:
  • In a bowl, mix together the almond flour, chopped pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg and melted butter. If you want a more sweet crust, add a little sweetner to taste.
  • Use a 9 inch springform pan or round pie tin, add the crust mixture, and press down firmly across the bottom of pan, forming the raw crust.
  • Bake the crust at 350 degrees for 8 minutes until the crust sets and some color shows up. Do not over bake the crust at this point! It will back some more with the filling.
  • Pull the crust out of the oven to cool the crust before filling with the pecan pie filling.
  • Filling:
  • Reduce the heat in the oven to 325 degress.
  • In a large saute pan heat the butter and powdered sweetener over medium low heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently until the butter and sweetener turns color to a golden brown.
  • Add the cream and salt and, bring to a boil and turn heat down to a simmer.
  • Simmer for 15 to 25 minutes until the cream caramel filling is bubbly, dark golden brown and thicker. The creamy, caramel sauce should coat a spoon. The thicker, the better, but don't burn it.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and the maple syrup and stir completely.
  • With the pie crust and the filling cool (15-20 minutes) and cool enough to not cook the eggs, whisk in the egg.
  • Using a spatula pour the filling mixture into the the cooled crust and shake it a bit to even out the mixture across the crust.
  • Carefully place the whole pecans across the top of the filling either randomly or in any fancy pattern you wish.
  • Bake for about 40-50 minutes checking carefully on the crust color until the top of the filling is dark brown and the filling is set. They may be a few bubbles or holes on top of the filling. Don't burn the crust!
  • Cool for at least an hour before slicing. As the filling cools it will set up more than when hot and in the oven.
  • Serve with some whipped cream topping or ice cream of your choice.
