This pie is delicious and I serve it often when I have guests over for dinner. New York is one of the nation's top producers of maple syrup.

MY REVIEW

Made this recipe for a pie baking contest at work after doing a test run at home. Made a few changes- added 1 tsp maple extract to the filling before cooking on stove top, added the maple syrup to the whipping cream as well as about 1/4 c white sugar before whipping. Made Sugar Coated Pecans recipe from another site, which I chopped and sprinkled on top just before serving- this was fantastic! Also, used purchased graham pie crust, and everyone agreed the graham combined with the maple and pecan flavors was great! Oh yes- I won the contest!!

That pie is delicious. It melts in your mouth. The texture is smooth. The only thing is that I don't always have whipping cream in my refrigerator but I would serve it to guests.
