This pecan pie is kind of like the one you grew up with, but it is also so very different.  The texture is the same, but it is sweetened with honey and maple syrup instead of corn syrup for a deep and naturally sweetened flavor!

    This is the pie recipe MiMi originally created to go toe to toe with the BBQ Bacon Pecan pie from the Cupcake Project.  It is very similar to your traditional pecan pie, but the filling is sweetened with honey and maple syrup instead of corn syrup.

     She got going on a 3/4 measurement theme and it worked!  She decided to enter the brownie pecan pie, figuring she might need chocolate to go against the bacon.  But the funny thing is, this is the pie that people were still talking about.

    It starts out tasting a lot like what you would think pecan pie would taste like, but is finished with a really nice honey flavor.  It would be a hit at your Thanksgiving table, for sure!
