Maple Pecan Pie- Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.  We had a great, relaxing day with our little family and a good Portuguese friend.  She brought us delicious homemade flan- it's really yummy.  I need to get the recipe from her.

I made a maple pecan pie, using Vermont maple syrup instead of the traditional corn syrup.  I love maple pecan pie.  I added some extra pecans, too.  I found this recipe from Taste of Home.

3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar

3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1- 1/2 cups pecan halves
1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)

1.  In a bowl, whisk eggs and sugar until smooth. Add maple syrup, butter, vanilla, salt and pecans. Pour into pastry shell.

2.  Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 8 servings.
