First of all, don't laugh at my miniscule slice of pie. I had to steal the piece from the now-not-so-whole pie, which was part of a music meeting's refreshments.
I was excited to bake the pecan pie, though I was initially suspicious of Melissa Murphy's addition of maple and honey— why mess with something that is great? The variation was subtle and not cloying, in fact, the filling was less sweet (a good thing) than what I am used to. I love the idea of browning the butter, which adds a depth of flavor to the filling. (I learned that step from The Pastor's Wife two years ago.)
You can find the recipe on Jennifer's blog, Oh, Sweet Day. Thanks, Jennifer, for picking such a great recipe! (The original recipe calls for chocolate chips- I omitted the chocolate.)
