I don’t know about you guys, but there’s nothing quite like a slice of warm, gooey pecan pie on a cold fall day. So, I went on a search for the perfect recipe and came across two that caught my eye.

First up is a Maple Pecan Pie recipe from mamaloli.com. To start, preheat your oven to 350°F. Next, prepare your crust and set it aside. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup of maple syrup, 1 cup of light corn syrup, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of melted butter, 3 eggs, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, and a dash of salt. Once combined, fold in 2 cups of pecans and pour the mixture into the prepared crust. Bake for about 60-70 minutes, or until the center of the pie is set.

For the second recipe, we have a Bourbon Pecan Pie from Baking Outside the Box. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F and preparing your crust. In a mixing bowl, cream together 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup of butter. Add in 3/4 cup of dark corn syrup, 3 eggs, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, 1 tbsp of flour, and a pinch of salt. Mix until smooth and fold in 1 1/2 cups of pecans that have been lightly toasted. Pour the mixture into your crust and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

Now, let’s take a moment to appreciate the deliciousness that is pecan pie. The combination of sweet syrup and crunchy pecans is truly unbeatable. Plus, these recipes are perfect for impressing your friends and family at your next gathering.
