Pecan pie

Anyone else like a good piece of pecan pie? I effing love it but I haven't had one for a while after my grandmother passed away a few years ago. We had a bag of pecans laying on the counter that weren't being used so I decided to try my hand at pie baking. I'm happy to report that it was delicious. And, since I'm the only one in the house who likes pecan pie, I had to eat the entire thing by myself

2 cups pecan pieces
3 eggs
1 cup maple syrup. The real stuff, none of that cheap garbage
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
I used a pre-made crust this time but crusts aren't too difficult to make from scratch. Just Google it

You can toast the pecans in a skillet if so desired. I didn't do that this time, but maybe next time

Heat syrup and butter in small saucepan over low/med heat until butter melts

Whisk eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, & salt in a large bowl

Combine egg and syrup mixtures together

I put the pecans in the crust first then pour the liquid mixture on top. This makes the pecans a bit more crispy. All of the filler ingredients can be mixed together and dumped into the crust too. Try it both ways, then you get to eat two pies...

Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes. Check it at 30 minutes and adjust minutely. Take it out when just the center portion jiggles(scientific term).

Let cool to being just warm and enjoy with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream. You're welcome
