This is the pecan pie I remember from my childhood so many years ago!! Made with dark Karo and chopped pecans, it comes out perfect and the flavor is amazing. So much better than the sickeningly-sweet, chunky pecan pies that are made with light corn syrup and pecan halves.
The best pecan pie out there!! I made 10 and they all set up very well and easy to make. ( I used light Karo) Thank you.
Fabulous old-school recipe. My grandmothers and mother only made 'Karo' pecan pie. To celebrate my Tennessee heritage, I add about an ounce or two of Jack Daniels while mixing the other ingredients.
