      Directions

      Pastry: In a food processor, combine the flour, butter and a pinch of salt, and pulse until the mixture resembles big breadcrumbs. Whisk the egg and 1 tablespoon ice water in a bowl until combined. With food processor motor running, add the wet mixture to the flour mixture. Process until mixture begins to form large clumps, stopping the machine before the mixture forms a ball. If it needs a bit more water, add it. You want the dough to just barely hang together, and not be too wet.

      Turn the pastry out onto a work surface, and knead very gently to bring the dough together. Form the dough into a disk shape, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Two is even better.

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

      Using a light dusting of flour on your board and rolling pin, roll out the dough to the desired thickness. Lay the dough into the pie plate, and prick with a fork all over, trim and decorate the edge of the pie as you wish.

      Filling: In a large bowl, combine the maple syrup, egg, sugar, and cream, and stir well to mix. Transfer the filling mixture to the pastry-lined pie dish. Top with the pecan nuts, and bake for about 35 minutes, or until set. Let cool before serving.

      Serve the pie with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

        Chuck has a really good pie recipe. However this recipe isn't the one he has in his book. Someone messed up somewhere and didn't transfer it over correctly.

        His cook book says...

        1 cup light brown sugar
        2 tbsp flour
        2 eggs
        1/2 cup maple syrup
        1/2 cup heavy cream
        1 cup of pecans
        And a pie shell his book doesn't list the items for the pie shell.

        Preheat oven to 350

        Whisk together the sugar and flour into a small bowl

        In a large bowl beat the eggs, stir in the maple syrup and cream. add the sugar mixture and stir to combine. Pour the filling into the pie shell. Arrange the pecans on top.

        Bake for about 40 minutes, until the filling is bubbly, the pecans are a little bit crystallized, and the crust is golden brown. This pie will be wobbly when you take it out of the oven but will set lightly when cooled. Let cool before cutting.

        Hi, I would like to let you know that i tryed the maple pecan pie recipe. I thought this would be a great pie. I have made pecan pie before. I have to say i was very disapointed in this pie. The taste was great BUT the filling never set up- it was so runny we hade to eat it with a SPOON. I followed the recipe to the letter, any sugestions?
        Very Disapointed, Jim

        From those that tasted it said it was good but it never set. Had it in almost an hr looked ok didn't want to burn crust so thought it would set as it cooled. It didn't. It was runny :(. Need to figure something out to thicken it.
