Ingredients
  

  • 320 g shortcrust pastry chilled
  • 300 g pecan halves
  • 4 eggs
  • 75 g maple syrup
  • 300 g  light corn syrup
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 190 g dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 55 g unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tsp self-raising flour
  • icing sugar

Instructions
 

  • You will need a 9” tart pan with a removable base.
  • Dust your surface with icing sugar, then roll out your pastry and cut it 1” larger than the tart pan.
  • Lightly roll the pastry around a rolling pin. Unroll on top of your tart ring or pan and with your hands gently press dough into pan. Then use a knife to remove any excess pastry.
  • Prick the bottom of the pastry with a fork (this will prevent the dough from puffing up as it bakes). Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to chill the pastry.
  • Preheat oven 180°C.
  • In a medium-size bowl, whisk together 3 of the eggs – then add maple syrup, light corn syrup, salt, dark brown sugar, vanilla extract, flour and stream in melted unsalted butter. Whisk together until thoroughly combined.
  • In small bowl whisk the left over egg, then using a pastry brush glaze the pie base with the egg.
  • Roughly chop 200g of the pecans, place the chopped pecans onto the pie base and pour the filling to fill over the top.
  • Arrange the unchopped pecans on top of the pie for decor.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until pie has set.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely before serving., with whipped cream or ice-cream – the choice is yours!
