1 9-inch pie shell; unbaked
1½ cups Pecan Valley Pecan Halves
1 cup maple syrup
¼ cup unsalted butter or margarine
1 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon sea salt
1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spread the nuts evenly over pie shell.
2. In a large mixing bowl mix together butter or margarine, vanilla, and flour. Beat the eggs well, and blend into the flour mixture. Add salt, maple syrup, and cream. Pour filling over the nuts in the pie shell. Make sure the nuts are covered, so they will not burn.
3. Bake in a preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center come out clean. Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
