Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.

Whisk together: 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tsp flour and 1/4 tsp salt

Then add: 1C dark maple syrup (Dark Robust or Very Dark Strong), 1/2 C creamy peanut butter, 2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 C melted butter. Stir together.

Then add: 3 eggs, one at a time, whisking to blend after each addition

Then add: 1 1/2 C coarsely chopped dry roasted peanuts (salted is ok)

Pour into prepared pie shell, cover pie crust edges to prevent overbrowning, place on a baking sheet. Bake for 55-60 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool for 3 hours until center is set. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt, if desired.
