Ingredients

THE FILLING, HEAT

  • 1 cup Packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup Pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup Light corn syrup
  • ½ tsp. Table salt
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp. Pure vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp. Unsalted butter, melted

THE CRUST, PREPARE

  • 1 Recipe Perfect Pie Crust, made into a single 9-inch crust and blind-baked, with dough scraps reserved and chilled for pastry leaves
  • 1 ¾ cups Pecan halves (6 oz.), toasted

THE EGG WASH, COMBINE

  • 1 Egg, beaten  
  • 1 tbsp. Cold water
  • Granulated sugar (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°.
  • For the filling, heat brown sugar, maple syrup, corn syrup, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Whisk together eggs and vanilla. Whisk a little of the heated sugar mixture into the egg mixture to temper the eggs. Slowly whisk in remaining sugar mixture and melted butter.
  • For the crust, prepare pie crust according to recipe directions.
  • Place blind-baked crust on a baking sheet. Spread toasted pecans in bottom; pour in filling.
  • To make leaves, roll out reserved, chilled pie dough to ¼-inch thick. Cut 2-inch leaves from dough. You will need at least 12 leaves. For veins, score a line down the center of each leaf, using the back of a paring knife. Score angled lines from the center line to the edges of each leaf.
  • For the egg wash, combine egg and water. Brush edge of pie crust with egg wash; place leaves around edge. Brush leaves with egg wash; sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake pie in center of oven until pie puffs slightly and center appears set, 35–45 minutes. Cool pie to room temperature before serving.
