A warm cup of coffee, a cozy sweater, and a slice of pecan pie are the essence of fall. (They also making doing homework a little more fun.) Plus, the smell of this pie baking is like all of the good aromas of fall wrapped up in one little glass dish.
My mom would make this pie a bunch at home around this time of the year, so I asked her for the recipe. Turns out it is this one from Epicurious. It uses maple syrup along with the typical corn syrup, so there's a whole lot of amazing flavor in this pie.
Happy Fall and Bon Appetit,
