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

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!

A dash of local for every season
