- 1/4 cup Brown Rice Flour
- 1/4 cup Masa Harina FLour
- 1/4 cup White Rice Flour
- 1/4 cup Tapioca Flour
- 1/4 cup Potato Starch
- 1/2 tsp Guar Gum
- 1/3 cup Coconut Oil
- 2 tbsp Honey
- 1 Egg
- 1 tbsp Cold Water
Pie FIlling Ingredients
- 4 Eggs
- 1/2 cup Real Canadian Maple Syrup
- 1/2 cup Corn Syrup
- 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup Light/Golden Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 cup Dairy Free Margarine, melted
- 1 1/3 cup (150g) Pecan Halves
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Place all dry pie crust ingredients in a food processor and pulse a few times to mix.
- Add coconut oil, honey, and egg, then pulse again a few times until just combined throughout.
- Add one tbsp of cold water and pulse again until the pie crust dough just starts to clump together a bit.
- Empty the dough onto a large square of parchment or wax paper.
- Cover with a large square of plastic wrap and push the dough together to form a flat, solid disc.
- Lay the plastic wrap on top of the disc and begin rolling out the dough until it is large enough to cover the entire circumference of your pie plate.
- Remove the top layer of plastic wrap and carefully flip the pie shell into your pie plate with the help of a large cutting board, then remove the remaining parchment/wax paper.
- Gently push the dough into your pie plate, and fix any rips, tears, or missing areas of your shell by helping it along with your hands.
- Place pie shell in the freezer while preparing the rest of your recipe, let it freeze completely for at least 15 – 20 minutes
- In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until thoroughly scrambled
- Add syrups, sugars and vanilla extract to the eggs and whisk until sugars are completely dissolved
- Melt margarine in the microwave, then drizzle into the egg mixture while whisking
- Pour egg mixture into the frozen pie shell
- Gently place pecan halves on top of the mixture in some fancy decorative pattern
- Bake in the center rack for 50 minutes, checking at 30 minutes to see if the pie shell is browning too quickly
- If the crust is browning too fast, wrap tinfoil around the edge of the pie to protect the edges and continue baking for the remainder of the 50 minutes
- Let cool for around 4 hours before serving
