So sweet, but always a hit. Make sure you serve this with a dollop of whipped cream to cut the sweetness.
1 ½ c packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs at room temperature
½ C heavy cream
1/3 C maple syrup (good, dark stuff)
2 tsp unsalted melted butter
8 inch pie crust
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together the brown sugar and eggs until creamy.
Add cream, syrup and butter and whisk until smooth and pour into pie crust.
Bake pie in lower third of oven until pastry is golden brown and the filling is puffed and looks dry but still “trembles” – 50 to 60 minutes.
Cool on a rack to room temperature, the filling will settle as the pie cools.
