Maple Pecan Pie

Pecan pie is definitely a sweet dessert, but salty-sweet is better in my book and using slightly salty pecans gives the pie a nice balance.

Ingredients

Pie Crust:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter chilled in about 6 pieces
  • 3-4 tbsp ice water

Filling:

  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp butter melted and cooled
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped roasted and salted pecans

Instructions

Crust:

  • Whisk together flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until mixture is very coarse, but no pieces bigger than a large pea remain. Using a fork, stir in ice water until dough almost comes together into a ball. Press dough into a ball with your hands and wrap in plastic. Chill for at least 30-60 minutes before using.

Filling:

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Roll out pie dough to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Transfer dough to pie plate and press lightly into place, crimping edges to fit. (If using a frozen pie crust, thaw first)
  • In a large bowl, whisk together maple syrup, sugars, eggs, melted butter, flour, vanilla and salt until smooth.
  • Spread the pecans into the bottom of the pie shell and pour maple syrup mixture over the top. Carefully transfer pie to oven.
  • Bake for 60 minutes, until puffed and set.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
