Aunt Helens Pecan Pie

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

A little less sweet than some Pecan Pies (about half the sugar of most recipes I've seen). A family favorite. Update: My original copy of this says to bake for an additional 30-32 min. This hasn't been working for me lately so I increased it to 40-45 min. When finished the center should have a slight jiggle to it but the whole pie should not slosh. If any reviewer can give me an accurate time (I am admittedly pie challenged) I will edit the recipe to reflect that.

I love pecan pie and this is a great recipe. Yes, the middle is a little gooey but that's what I love about pecan pie. We had friends over for pie and they loved the recipe also.

Of course it's sweet, it's pecan pie!! The filling was NOT runny but gooey. Followed the recipe exactly and it was terrific. Besides everyone loves their Aunt Helen.

I don't know about sweeter than most pecan pies because this was pretty sweet. I thought the additon of cream was an interesting touch. I found that the filling tended to be a little runny.
