  • 1 unbaked refrigerated pie crust or make your own
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup or dark corn syrup
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1 ¼ cups pecans roughly chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350F and prepare a 9-inch pie dish with non-stick spray.
  • Roll out your pie crust to about an 11-inch circle. Place in your pie dish. Use your index finger from one hand and your index and thumb of the other to flute the top of the pie crust (if desired). Poke holes in the bottom of the crust using a fork and bake for 7 to 8 minutes or just until golden brown.
  • Prepare your filling: Combine maple syrup, corn syrup, brown sugar, butter, and ground cinnamon in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until butter has melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Temper the eggs: Add the eggs into a small bowl and whisk. Add about 1 tablespoon of the hot liquid to the eggs whisking constantly. Add another tablespoon of liquid and whisk constantly. Pour the eggs into the sugar syrup mixture and whisk well to combine. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove any small pieces of egg.
  • Add the chopped pecans to the pie crust and top with the sugar syrup.
  • Bake for 50 to 55 minutes covering the pie with foil around 30 minutes to keep the shell from getting too dark.
  • Check to see if the pie is done: Gently move the pie and give it a tiny little shake. If the center slightly jiggles (like jello not water) then it is done baking. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
