Decadent Maple Bourbon Pecan Pie is pure perfection and so easy to make! This no corn syrup recipe combines rich maple syrup with smokey bourbon and pecans to make a pie that's sure to be the star of any holiday gathering.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place pecans on a baking sheet and toast for 3-4 minutes until brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
In a medium-size saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter. Add brown sugar and maple syrup and stir until smooth. Bring the mixture up to a simmer then remove from heat. Place in a bowl to cool for 10 minutes.
Whisk eggs and add to the butter-sugar mixture. Add in bourbon, vanilla, and salt whisking together until well blended. Pour mixture into uncooked pie shell. Place toasted pecans on top of the sugar fulling. Place pie on a baking sheet. Lightly spray a piece of foil with cooking spray and place over pie. Bake pie in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes until the edges of the pie are set. The center will be slightly jiggly but will set when cooled.
Remove pie from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle with flakey sea salt. Best served at room temperature.
