Maple Pecan Pie

Maple Pecan Pie

1 cup (250 mL) maple syrup
2/3 cup (150 mL) sugar
3 eggs
1/4 cup (50 mL) melted butter
1 tsp. (5 mL) vanilla
1 cup (250 mL) coarsely chopped pecans
1 9-inch (23-cm) purchased or homemade pie shell, unbaked

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
In a mixing bowl, beat together maple syrup, sugar, eggs, melted butter and vanilla with an electric mixer until slightly thickened, about 2 or 3 minutes. Stir in chopped pecans and pour the mixture into the prepared pie shell. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife poked into the center of the filling comes out clean.
Let cool completely or serve slightly warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

Servings: 6 to 8, or one 9-inch (23-cm) pie
