We are studying about Canada and what more perfect way to learn about the maple leaf than with pie! There is probably a proven fact out there that you can learn anything better while eating pie and if there isn't there should be.
O Canada Maple Pecan Pie
1 pie crust
1 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup brown sugar
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon flour
1 3/4 cups pecans
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Evenly spread the pecans in the pie shell. Beat the eggs for two minutes. Add all the other ingredients to the eggs and beat for one more minute.
We used homemade Minnesota maple syrup and oh, it smells good.
Slowly pour the liquid over the pecans. Place the pie on a baking sheet and put in oven. Bake for 10 minutes after which you turn the oven down to 375 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes or until the center is not liquidy and top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Cut the pie, grab a fork and enjoy!
