Add flour all at once, stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon. Cook and stir until the mixture forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat, cool for 10 minutes.

Spoon some of the warm Maple-Caramel sauce onto dessert plates; sprinkle with pecans. Place a cream puff on each plate, drizzle each with remaining sauce and sprinkle with remaining pecans.
