Our Vermont maple syrup can't be beat, and this is one of my favorite pies. It's also quick and easy to make.

"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."

"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!"
