Maple Pecan Pie

Maple Pecan Pie

1 cup maple syrup
1⁄4 cup packed brown sugar
3 eggs
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons flour
11⁄2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, melted
11⁄2 cups pecan halves
1 9-inch frozen unbaked deep-dish pie shell,

Preheat oven to 180 C.

In a large bowl, stir together syrup, sugar, eggs, egg yolk, flour, and vanilla. Whisk in melted butter. Stir in 1 cup of pecans.

Place frozen pie shell on a baking sheet. Pour maple syrup mixture into shell.
Arrange remaining 1⁄2 cup of pecans on syrup mixture, pressing into syrup mixture to coat.

Place baking sheet in center of oven. Bake pie for 50 minutes or until edges are golden and filling is just set in center. Cool pie on cooling rack for 15 minutes. Cut pie into wedges and serve warm.

I preferred to have it cold.....with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and a good company.....
