Maple Syrup Pecan Pie with Applewood Sea Salt

Maple Syrup Pecan Pie with Applewood Sea Salt

Did you know that December 17th is National Maple Syrup Day. What better way to celebrate than my Maple Syrup Pecan Pie with Applewood Sea Salt ?


I have been having this odd hankering for pecans for the last month. Maybe it is some creative idea is subconsciously brewing within me, or just this time of year. Either way it is quite unusual for me.  I decided on a whim that I wanted to make a pecan pie using maple syrup yesterday afternoon. I didn’t even know that today was National Maple Syrup day go figure!  So now I am rushing to get this recipe put together after posting about it on my Instagram account and getting comments about wanting the recipe. Ask and you shall receive, here is my recipe for Maple Syrup Pecan Pie with Applewood Sea Salt.

Maple Syrup Pecan Pie with Applewood Sea Salt

Course Dessert
Cuisine Southern
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes


  • 2 1/2 cups fresh pecans whole, shelled
  • 1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 5 Tbls Butter Melted
  • 1 Tbls Flour
  • 3 tsp Vanilla Extract High Quality
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 tsp Applewood Smoked Sea Salt Plus extra for top
  • 1 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 Refrigerated Pie Crust
  • 1 pint Heavy Whipping Cream optional
  • 2 Tbls Burbon optional
  • 1-2 Vanilla Beans optional


  • I am not a make my own pie crust gal, so I take the help where I can. I use a store bought roll out pie shell, that I blind bake for 12 minutes prior to place the pie filling inside, to prevent a soggy bottom. 
  • For the filling whisk melted butter, flour  and brown sugar in a bowl. 
  • Next add in your eggs, salt and vanilla. 
  • You can add extra vanilla beans at this point by cutting the pods and scraping the beans out into your mix. 
  • Add your maple syrup and pecans to the mix and pour into your pre baked pie shell. 
  • Bake for 60 mins at at 350 degrees. 
  • Top with a tiny bit of Applewood Sea Salt upon removing from oven to cool for 3-4 hours before slicing. Tip if you are in a hurry you can place pie in freezer to speed up the process. 
  • You can serve with optional Bourbon Whip Cream, made with 1/2 heavy whipping cream to 3 oz of bourbon, and fresh vanilla beans. 

This is really a tasty pie recipe and perfect for any gathering. We usually make a pecan pie at Thanksgiving and/or Christmas, but honestly these flavors are yummy year round. We also usually get bushel bags of pecans, as a holiday gifts, since we are located here in Georgia near some amazing pecan groves. So I really wanted to share this innovate take on a traditional pie recipe with you all, in case Santa left your a bag of pecans this year.

  • Also as a sidebar note I am not the authority on how to say pecan, nor will I get into how you should say it. I personally think “to each there own”, whether you say pee-can or pa’con there is no judgment here. I was born and raised in Georgia so I have heard it all, lol.
