Reviews for Maple Pecan Pie
"Just pulled out of oven after 55minutes of cooking, still a little runny. I don't bake much but would that be so and get more firm when cooling?"
"Just perfect! We were very happy with this pie. 5 Stars!I covered the pie crust edges in foil the whole time so they didn't over cook and the top in the last 5 minutes so the pecans didn't over brown.It cracked just a bit at the 45 minute mark. Next time I will turn the heat off at 35 or 40 mins and let it cool in the oven to try for it not to crack. Just an appearance issue, didn't affect the taste."
"This one's a keeper! I added 1/2 cup of pecans and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract like some of the other reviewers suggested. I like the change up from normal pecan pie."
"I make this every year for Thanksgiving. I love the flavor!"
"Added 1/2 Cup extra pecans. I'll try omitting the sugar next time because it's quite sweet."
"Absolutely THE best pecan pie recipe out there! Ever since it came out in a Taste of Home years ago it's been our star recipe for many Thanksgiving & Christmas dinners. Goes together quickly. You can substitute the white sugar for erythritol or Splenda with excellent results. Sometimes I'll add up to a full teaspoon of vanilla. This is just absolutely the best pecan pie. Love the subtle difference the maple syrup adds. You won't be disappointed. Be prepared to receive enormous praise and requests for the recipe!"
"we would make this again! My three year old thought it was the great. As a treat add a half cup of chocolate chips!!! YUM YUM"
"LOVED this- add 1/2 cup extra pecans."
