- Place pecans into a heavy saucepan over medium heat and toast the nuts, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar over pecans and stir constantly until the sugar melts to a light brown syrup and coats the pecans. Immediately pull the pan off the heat; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.
- Turn hot pecans out onto a piece of parchment paper and cool thoroughly; break apart any large clumps. Set candied pecans aside.
- Whisk 3/4 cup sugar, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla extract, and maple flavoring in a large bowl until smooth. Slowly whisk in half-and-half.
- Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Mix the candied pecans into the softly-frozen ice cream. Sprinkle servings with a pinch of coarsely ground sea salt.

This ice cream is awesome! The only difference was I used heavy whipping cream instead of half and half, and it was still awesome! So delicious! I definitely will be making this again real soon!

This is really good ice cream. It was fast & simple to make and the instructions are easy to follow. I made two modifications for my own taste, those being reducing the sugar to a half cup, and ...
I thought it was good. Had a little bit of an after taste to it but not bad. I would make this one again.
This ice cream tastes like the very best butter pecan ice cream you can find. I sometimes replace part of the half and half with whipping cream, because it makes a richer and smoother ice cream....
Tried this and it was wonderful! Substituted out 1 cup of the half and half for a cup of heavy whipping cream to make it a little richer. Absolutely great!
This is my go to recipe when I want to make some delicious ice cream either to wow guests or to just indulge in some deliciousness!
