Recipe: Pecan Pie

The first pecan pie I made this year...and it was for a customer.

2 cups pecans, toasted and roughly chopped
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
pinch salt

Oven to 350F

Combine eggs and sugar, whisking until foamy. Then stir in the salt, vanilla, butter and maple. Add the pecans and pour into the shell. I bake my shell a bit before to make sure it gets fully cooked. Bake until it browns and stops jiggling.

You seem to take a LOT of special orders! (Off the menu, requests...) Looks great, though I've never tried a Pecan Pie before. It sounds a little on the too-sugary side (though I have tried a brown sugar pie before, heh heh), but of course I'll try whatever you make as long as there's no roasted chestnut flour :P Maybe I should make some for myself, in individual portions so there's more crust to neutralize the sweetness.
