I’m in Kentucky cooking for my 90 year old Uncle Bill and since he loves pecan pie and we want to keep him alive much longer so I experimented with a non- toxic version of  one of my favorite decadent desserts.  

How obvious to put real maple syrup instead of  GMO chemical corn syrup!  Maple is a marriage made in heaven for pecans!  And coconut oil instead of lard (crisco) for the crust keeps it flakey and I love the subtle coconut flavor it adds.  I made the crust with butter but there is a non dairy version- There is butter in the Pecan pie too so what’s the point?
