Pecan pie can all too often be ordinary, but the use of maple syrup turns this one into a classic Stars dessert, especially served warm with coffee ice cream. Total sin.


  • 4 large eggs
  • cup sugar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup Karo syrup
  • 3 ounces (¾ stick) sweet butter, melted
  • 12 ounces coarsely chopped and toasted pecans ( cups)
  • 1 partially baked 10-inch pie shell
  • 1 recipe Chantilly Cream


    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

    Whisk together the eggs and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the maple and Karo syrups and then the melted butter.

    Put the pecans in the pie shell and slowly pour in the syrup.

    Bake the pie for 20 to 25 minutes, until the surface of the pie is cracked and the filling is just set.

    Serve the pie warm or at room temperature with ice cream or chantilly cream.
