  • 1 recipe pie crust
  • 6 egg yolks
  • ½ cup (5oz/142g) golden syrup (or maple syrup)
  • 2/3 cup (4 oz/115g) dark brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons (3oz/90g) butter, melted
  • ¼ cup (2floz/57ml) cream

  • 1/4 tsp Salt/pinch will do
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract - optional
  1. Preheat the oven to 350oF (180oC) then line a 9 inch pie tin with either a store bought crust or my best ever pie crust recipe, set aside. 
  2. Combine the egg yolks, syrup, brown sugar, butter and cream in a bowl. Add in the pecans and whisk until smooth.

  3. Pour the pecan mix into your prepared pie shell. 

  4. Select your nicest pecans and lay as you wish on top of the mixture. You can chop and scatter too if you wish.

  5. Bake the pie for 30 minutes or until the center of the filling is a little wobbly in the middle and just set around the edges. 

  6. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. 

  7. Cover and store at room temperature for up to 4 days.
