Dough for single-crust pie (9 inches)
3 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups pecan halves
Whipped cream, optional
Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
In a bowl, whisk eggs and sugar until smooth. Add maple syrup, butter, vanilla, salt and pecans. Pour into crust.
Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 30-40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. If desired, top with whipped cream to serve. Store in the refrigerator.
