“The real secret to baking to-die-for pecan pie is using maple syrup and brown sugar. This recipe is simple and fast, and even the novice cook will get raves. By the way, pecan is pronounced "puh-KAAHN," not "PEE-can," which just sounds unappetizing. No matter how you say it, you better bring copies of this recipe on note cards to hand out to friends and family.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together all pie filling ingredients except pecans.
  3. Add pecans and stir.
  4. Pour mixture into a prepared pie shell. (Do not pre-bake the shell.) The pecans will rise to the top by themselves.
  5. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, or until center barely jiggles when you shake the oven rack.
  6. Serve warm. If you're really off your diet, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
