Pecan Pie is Jim's favorite pie any time of the year, but definitely around Thanksgiving.   This past week I made a Pear Dumplings Cobbler and had enough pie dough left to form a single pie crust.  

So I decided I would make a pecan pie for Jim since he loves them so, but when I got ready to make it, I didn't have quite enough corn syrup to make one.  

But I did have some maple syrup.  The maple syrup sounded so good, but Jim is the same old...same old classic pecan pie kind of guy.  He doesn't like me to change his likes too much.  So I decided to surprise him with an Old Fashioned Pure Maple Pecan Pie.

HOW TO KEEP A FILLING FROM SEEPING THROUGH THE CRUST WHILE BAKING

  • Crack an egg and separate the yolk from the egg white.  Reserve the egg yolk for the filling.  Using a fork whip the egg whites for a couple of minutes to loosen them to be more liquid and frothy.  
  • Dip a pastry brush in the loosened egg white and brush along the bottom and up the sides of a raw pie crust just before pouring the filling into the pie shell.  
  • The egg white layer forms a barrier between the crust and the filling not letting the filling seep through.
  • The egg white barrier is tasteless and cannot be seen in the pie when served.  
  • It is a no-fail method I have used for years to keep the filling from seeping through the crust while the pie is cooking.
  • I use this method for the following pies

NOTES:

Depending on the size of your pie dish.  Some do not measure for 9-inch even though they say they are.  You might say not all 9-inch pie plates are equal.   I am telling you this so you do not overfill your pie.  It will bubble up and run over in the oven when baking.  

Fill only to the top just before reaching the lip or the area you crimp your pie crust.  I am telling you this from experience.  

It is always a good idea to place on a sheet pan or at least place a sheet pan in the oven under your pie.
