I looked through many pecan pie recipes and finally decided on this one, since I wanted to try the dark colored Karo syrup. I was so intrigued by the unique cooking temp./time (275 degrees)! Cook's Illustrated has a very similar recipe but there's has a more complicated prep, where you have to heat the filling to a partic. temp. before going in the oven. I loved YOUR easy method instead! My pie was done in the exact stated time (1 hr. 45). Cook's Illust. says the filling is done when it feels like Jello when pressed with the back of a spoon. This pie had the richest flavor I've ever had in a pecan pie before! I was so proud to serve this to company! I can't wait to make this again. Thanks Little Bee, for your FIRST CLASS pie recipe- Roxygirl
This recipe is quick, easy to follow instructions and it really turns out great. I have an aluminum crust protector to put around my crust istead of aluminum foil. It works great and I don't have to worry about pinching the aluminum foil to stay on around the pie crust. You can pick these up at your local Wal-Mart store
All I can say is, "OMG". I can't believe how easy this is and it's unbelievable. Thanks you SO much for posting this one!!!
Best pecan pie we have every had !!!!! We love pecan pie and this was the most flavorful, non sickening sweet, crunchy ( used 1 cup chopped pecans spread on top of the crust prior to pouring in the filling) pecan pie !!! Have been cooking pies for over 50 years. This would rate "BEST IN SHOW" Thank you for all the compliments and raves. I did cook it some longer.
Love the recipe, it turned out perfect.
It was wonderful!!! I had my 13 year old son do most of it. And it turned out wonderful love the recipe. Just fabulous....
I would give this recipe 10 STARS if I could. My DH loves Pecan Pie and I keep trying to find the perfect one. Well my search is now over. This is the BEST Pecan Pie ever. The flavor is incrediable. I'm not a big fan of Pecan Pie but I have been converted now:))). I love the fact that you just mix everything in a bowl with no mixer. I did have to cook the pie for about 2hours and 5 minutes. I cooked it until it didn't jiggle when you moved it. My DH said this was the best constinancy of any Pecan Pie he has ever had. Thank you so much Little Bee for sharing this recipe. Everyone should try this if they truly want the best Pecan Pie ever.
This pecan pie was truly easy and delicious! I love it and will put it on my Thanksgiving pie list each and every year. I did, however, use light Karo syrup instead of dark...just a preference. But I followed the rest of the recipe exactly as stated right down to the foil on the edges of the crust. The detail that truly sets this pecan pie apart is the long baking time at the low temp. It did not burn and the center had truly set up...it was not runny and I had no burnt pecans. What a lovely pie...thanks Little Bee!
This pie will never fail. I LOVE pecan pie. Now I will have it more often. Thanksgiving was a blast, no one had room left until we passed this pecan pie around and forked it till it was gone. I also used "No Fail Pie Crust" recipe, #28943 and it came out splendid!
This pie was extremely easy to make, the instructions are great and the pie is incredibly delicious!! I made it for Thanksgiving and my BF and his family raved about it!! He's sort of a pecan pie connoisseur, after 50+ years of eating them. I used the "No Fail Pie Crust" recipe, #28943, and I had no problem with the pie crust edges turning too brown. The pie was exceptional! Thanks for the hit! I'll be making this pie for quite some time.
