Bake for 25 minutes. [Cover edge of crust with 2-3 inch strips of foil (or pie shield) to prevent excessive browning for last 15 minutes of baking].Bake for 15 minutes longer or until filling is set. Cool 15 minutes


When pie is cooled, top with whipped cream and additional pecans; sprinkle with cinnamon or drizzle with semi-sweet chocolate- your choice!

Notes

This year I branched out and made my first every completely homemade pecan pie. I wanted to find one that was a little different than the traditional- This pie uses maple syrup to give the pie a unique flavor!
