Truly indulgent and scrumptious taste of America.
8ozs/225g plain flour
4oz/110g butter, cold and cubed
2oz/50g caster or icing sugar
1 egg, beaten
4oz/110g maple syrup
4oz/110g golden syrup
4oz/110g caster sugar
2oz/50g soft brown sugar
3 eggs, beaten
7oz/200g pecan nuts, shelled and chopped
2 tablespoons dark rum
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
4oz/110g pecan nuts, shelled halves.
Remove pastry-lined dish from fridge and gently pour in filling up to about quarter of an inch from the rim. Place topping nut halves decoratively on top of filling. Bake at Gas4 (350f/180c)for 35-40 minutes.
This pie has a lot of sticky runny filling before it is baked so putting it on a tray in the oven can save on spills!
You may want to cover the pastry rim with foil after about 20 minutes to prevent it over-cooking.
Perfect for your comic relief (or any other) bake sale.
